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.

In this episode we examine the asynchronous (a.k.a concurrent) type of NSOperation where we are doing things that involve callback blocks or delegates.
lock
#175
In this episode we take a look at the basics of NSOperation, NSOperationQueue, starting from block operations and moving to custom NSOperation subclasses. We'll also see why it's important to make your operations thread safe.

#174
In this episode we cover local notifications in iOS 8. We cover the difference between count-down style notifications and time-zone based notifications. We also discuss how to add actions to the notifications and handle those in your application.

#173
In this episode we take the Magic Move transition from last week's episode and make interactive, so that you can feel the transition along with your swipe.
lock
#172
In this episode we'll create a custom view controller animation that mimics the Magic Move behavior from keynote, taking one object and animating into its place on the next slide (or view controller).
lock
#171
In this episode we examine how we can leverage the NSDateComponents class to convert a set of individual date parts like month, day, year into an actual NSDate
lock
#170
In this episode we talk about a Swift testing framework called Quick. Quick offers a familiar BDD style syntax, some really friendly matchers, as well as support for testing asynchronous parts of our code. We'll use a Ninja class as our example, testing initialization, equality, and an asynchronous method.

#169
In this episode we wrap up our long Road Trip DJ Series. We resume testing on the device, uncovering and fixing an auto-layout issue, working with the music players events to keep our UI in sync, implementing a song progress indicator and implementing scrubbing. Phew!
lock
#168
In this episode we fix up the scrollbar, handle taps and update the active track, as well as adding a background color to the active row.
lock
#167
In this episode I do some deep auto-layout constraint debugging with Reveal, and discuss how to make our header resize based on the device we're running on.
lock
#166
In this episode I address the usability concerns of our toolbar buttons. I removed the bar button item spacing elements and instead use auto layout to control the size of the buttons. We also add a visual indicator of how wide each button is when you tap it, and fix the play/pause state of the middle button.
lock
#165
In this episode we adapt MPMediaItem to our PlaylistItem protocol and fix some issues related to running on the device. We add play/pause functionality, and discuss the issue of hit area on our toolbar buttons.
lock
#164
In this episode I fix a couple of bugs and fix the transition animation for the header view by leveraging UIView snapshotting.
lock
#163
In this episode we fix the playlist header at the top, first by a custom collection view layout, then by simply using a custom view at the top.
lock
#162
In this episode we wire up the next / previous track buttons and modify which track is currently shown in the header. We also encounter an unexpected issue when comparing signed and unsigned integers.
lock
#161
In this episode we make a custom collection view header to prominently display the currently playing track. We also fix up some auto layout issues from the last episode.
lock
#160
This time we work on the collection view layout and cells, along the way we create an abstraction of our media items to make development go a bit faster and to allow the app to display content in the simulator.
lock
#159
In this episode I put some custom icons in the player bar and convert this into a control that can be displayed in interface builder, complete with configurable spacing between buttons using Interface Builder.

#158
Continuing our build out of Road Trip DJ, this time I focus on the music player, and keeping the play/pause button in sync on UIToolbar, which proves to be more difficult than it should be.
Shape
#157
In this episode we continue Road Trip DJ and implement the media picker controller, talk about the different modes that in can operate in and how that affects the usability of this app. We also consider how we're going to build a playlist and keep appending items to it.
Shape
#156
In this episode we start building an app from scratch called Road Trip DJ. The idea is the build a playlist of music on the fly while it is playing. This is an app I've wanted to build for a while and it serves as a good, small app we can build from start to finish.

Continuing from last week's episode, this time we talk about adding environment-specific settings in xcconfig files, have them pre-processed into the Info.plist, and also how to integrate this technique with CocoaPods.
lock
#154
In this episode we extract all of the settings from a standard iPhone project and move them over to a .xcconfig file for Xcode to use as a base for our projects. Doing so can make our configuration a bit more explicit, allow us to add comments on why certain settings are necessary, and also to put them under version control to make it easy to spot changes.
