Sometimes, small code changes can bring considerable benefits.  By using specific keywords, we can improve the performance of our code.  Before I reveal that little optimization trick, you need to understand why it actually works. So, let’s talk first about method calls. Swift supports different techniques to invoke a method at runtime. Static dispatch is when the compiler can infer at build time which method to call. Static dispatch won’t work if subclasses can override the methods or the properties of the superclass. The compiler can’t figure out at compile time whether we’re referring to the superclass’s implementation or [...]

Brief History of Programming Excerpt from my latest book "UML and Object-Oriented Design Foundations" Available on Amazon and iTunes. This Dilbert comic walks us through the history of programming. It's a bit of an exaggeration, but programming was totally different a couple of decades ago. Nowadays it is easy to get started with programming. There are various visual tools and sophisticated development environments that make learning fun. We can program drones and robots, create 3D-games or augmented reality apps. We can achieve all that without having to learn for years. We’re lucky to have all these great tools today. Initially, [...]
