Working on my next project "Machine Learning with CoreML and Swift." I plan to publish the video course and the book by September 2018. The book is available for pre-order.
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 [...]
I’m happy to announce that my new course just went live. ‘UML and Object-Oriented Design Foundations’ discusses the fundamentals of object-orientation. It also delves into UML, the communication standard that every software engineer needs to know. In celebration, I’m offering a personal coupon to get my brand new course for only $10. This is the lowest price I’ll ever offer it for. […]
Some keep arguing that UML is overly complex. They keep looking for “simpler” solutions. Now, UML is a standard. It was introduced to address every potential aspect of the object-oriented design. As such, it may look overwhelming at first. (The most recent UML specification is almost 800 pages long!) But we never need all the details covered by UML in a single project. You’ll usually end up using only four or five diagram types. […]
You'll only be able to effectively apply POP-principles if you understand how protocol extensions, protocol composition, and protocol inheritance works. In this short video, I talk about protocol inheritance. https://youtu.be/6LDvgJhK2oI Are you interested in Swift and Protocol-Oriented Programming? Check out my recently published course "Swift 4: Protocol-Oriented Programming" available on LinkedIn Learning: https://www.linkedin.com/learning/swift-4-protocol-oriented-programming and on Lynda: https://www.lynda.com/course-tutorials/Swift-4-Protocol-Oriented-Programming/633857-2.html
Help me reach my goal by subscribing to my Youtube channel Swift Programming Tutorials I upload new, mostly Swift programming related content on a regular basis.
Hi, The third, final part of the Design patterns in Swift series is now available on Pluralsight. This course teaches you about the behavioral design patterns and their implementation using modern Swift. It is the final part of a three-part series on Design Patterns in Swift. You can watch this course and the previous two parts if you have a Pluralsight subscription. Thanks for taking my courses! I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating the transition to 2018 in a few days! :) Cheers, Károly
https://youtu.be/WSF_gU3tlaY Check out my course Introduction to Algorithms and Data Structures in Swift. I’m offering lifetime access to the course for 90% off. Be sure to take advantage of this discount while it lasts!
I'd need your help to pick the topic of my upcoming course. Please take this very short survey and rate the planned courses according to your preference. It'll take less than 30 seconds, I promise! But eventually, you'll get the course you need. :) Besides, I'm going to give away 10 free promo codes among those who participate in the survey. So, here's the survey: Which Swift course should I create next? Thank you! Cheers, Károly
Are you a software developer? What if you could write better, FASTER code? Maybe you are just considering a career in software development. Wouldn’t it be great to pass the job interview with flying colors? Just imagine that you know how to figure out the complexity of a function. You understand how a dictionary works and you can decide when to use a set rather than an array. Imagine that you can explain with confidence why is quicksort preferred over insertion sort. And that’s why I created the course “Introduction to algorithms and data structures in Swift”. I’m offering lifetime access to [...]
