239 file downloads part 1
Downloading large files on iOS represents some unique challenges. Downloads should occur in the background, not confined to a particular view controller. They should be able to report progress on multiple screens, and should be robust enough to survive application suspension and failing network conditions, and respect the user's cellular data plan. In this episode we start a series on downloading large files that will cover all of the above concerns.

177 nsoperation dependencies poster 1280
In this episode we discuss dependent NSOperations. Using dependencies you can queue up a bunch of jobs and they will be run in the correct order, having one provide the necessary state for the next one to run. In the example, we take the large Hubble image, scale it down to a more appropriate size, then apply a Core Image filter to it. Each operation is dependent on the one before it, yet they are all queued up at the same time.
