Thinking out loud
Last week, I wrote about a new post series that I’m writing for my website. The series is all about Swift’s Codable, and it explains everything you need to know from the basics all the way to writing custom JSON (and plist) encoding, and decoding logic.
I’m approaching the series like I would approach a book, and I currently have the first post almost completed. The post links to several other posts that I plan to write which led me to an interesting realization.
It’s going to take me a little while to get this series out.
In my opinion, that’s not a bad thing. In fact, I think it’s nice. Once I have all posts done I’ll publish them all at once and it’ll be like I published some kind of a mini-book. Because of that, I figured I should probably call the series Practical Codable: A guide to working with JSON in Swift. Of course the posts will be made available on my website but I might bundle them all up in a PDF format to add to the Practial series so you can download them in PDF format as well as read them online.
I really don’t know whether I’ll do that yet. I’m just thinking out loud here.
In other news, I’m happy to tell you that earlier today, I was a guest for an episode of a podcast that I think you all know and love. I won’t tell you the name of the podcast just yet, but you’ll find out soon. Most likely tomorrow (Saturday, March 13th).
Next week, I’m hosting the second edition of my try! Swift Core Data workshop. Unfortunately, it’s all sold out but I’m happy to let you know that I’m working on an extended version of this workshop for the end of April.
You can learn more and get your tickets for my extended Core Data workshop right here.
The workshop will last for four hours and you’ll work on an interesting app that captures all the essentials of working with Core Data. We’ll use SwiftUI for the app’s UI but the learned knowledge should mostly carry over to UIKIt (except for the UI specific parts of course).
I’m super excited about this extended workshop and the shorter try! Swift version and I hope to see some of your faces at either of these workshops!
