Generational Analysis with the Allocations Instrument can be used to track down memory growth issues. We're going to be tracking down a memory management issue that caught us here at Big Nerd Ranch by surprise, and we'll show you what we did to solve it.
Throwing errors and completion handlers have pros and cons, and can’t be used in all situations. Here we examine some strategies for writing elegant async error-handling code with closures and associated-value enumerations.
In this screencast, you'll earn how to document your Swift code using Xcode’s Markup support, and Jazzy to create an informative API.
Generics allows for easy code reuse helping you write less code with fewer mistakes. In this video, we’ll learn how and when to use generics in your Swift apps by illustrating examples of problems that generics helps solve and we’ll build a simple, generic data structure.
In this screencast, we will explore how to use Xcode’s Configuration Settings Files - or xcconfig files - and improve our ability to tame the complexity of managing project settings.
Whether you’ve never written a unit test, or are just looking for a way to add unit tests to some existing troublesome code, this video will walk you through the fundamentals of unit testing on iOS with realistic example code to help you learn how to write valuable and effective tests.

Tight coupling between view controllers in your application can lead to difficult maintenance as you add and remove features. This video will explore how using Protocols can make our Dependency Injection more loosely coupled. This improves the flexibility of the code and makes our application easier to change.
UIStackViews are a relatively new addition to UIKit, appearing with iOS 9. They are quite useful because they eliminate the need for many Auto Layout constraints in common screen designs, making them easier to modify and maintain.
Sometimes your app design calls for a control design that isn't provided in UIKit. In this video, we draw one from scratch!
As View Controllers become more complex, the need to manage the state of the view becomes more important. In this video we will discuss how to use a state machine to manage our views state.
When you have a complex view controller view, sometimes it is helpful to break up the view into manageable chunks. In this video we will show how you can use container views to simplify the construction of certain layouts. After this video you will know when and how to use these container views in your applications.
While Android SDK provides the APIs for using SQLite databases, they force developers to write a lot of boilerplate code. Room solves this problem by creating the glue code that saves objects to SQLite and reads them into memory. In addition, it performs some compile-time checks to ensure correctness of SQL queries.

In this skill pack we'll add test coverage to a full-stack messaging app called ChattrBox. We'll show you a few tools you can use for testing and demonstrate how to configure them to build a test suite that is scalable and provides meaningful feedback about an application.
Ready to dive into the exciting world of tvOS apps? In this skill pack, we'll cover a few examples while introducing you to some fundamentals of programming tvOS applications. By the end of this screencast you'll have the skills needed to start building your own tvOS apps.
In this skill pack, you will learn how to set up and use Sketch for creating color themes, palettes, symbols, and more.
Here are a few sample screencsats to help you get started. View More →
In this screencast, we'll show you how to create a web service for tracking todos and we'll continue to build on this application throughout the rest of the series.
