Advanced Swift Workshop in Washington, DC
by Mike Ash  

I will be holding a one-day workshop on advanced Swift programming in the Washington, DC area on December 12th. If you enjoy my articles and want to sharpen your Swift skills, check it out.

I'm going to be discussing the ins and outs of ARC and memory management, reference cycles, enums, generics, designing code to take advantage of enums and generics, pointer APIs, and interfacing with C APIs. I have been building out a set of nifty Xcode playgrounds to illustrate everything, and attendees will receive a copy of them, as well as the presentation slides.

The format will be part lecture, part exercises using the playgrounds, with plenty of opportunity for discussions and personalized help.

If you think you might like to come, take a look at the event on Eventbrite. And if you know others who might like to come, please tell them about it!

In unrelated news, since I'm sure some of you are wondering, Volume II of my book is coming along slowly but surely, and I hope to get it out the door and get back to writing articles before too much longer. Stay tuned!

Did you enjoy this article? I'm selling whole books full of them! Volumes II and III are now out! They're available as ePub, PDF, print, and on iBooks and Kindle. Click here for more information.

Mike - I would sign up in a heartbeat. $200 is a no-brainer, $400 is a gut-check, but looking at the pointer and C interface topics, I would still do it. $800 just puts it out of my league. I wish you much success with it, but sorry. I would really like to be there. Regards.
Mike, thanks for the update about Volume II ;)
I'm ready to dive into iOS and OXS with your book !
Hey Mike, I might be interested in going to your event in NY but I'm not sure if I'm the target market. When you say "If you understand the basics of Swift but want to get to know it deeply and take full advantage of its features," it makes me wonder if I already have a lot of the foundational knowledge presented in this talk covered. Could you provide a little more detail about who the talk is geared toward, how in-depth you plan to get in programming with generics, and whether there will be significant time for Q&A?
The talk is geared towards people who are comfortable programming in Swift but don't quite have a full command of the language from top to bottom. For generics in particular, I'm going to cover background theory (motivations for the system, comparing with how similar constructs work in C and C++, alternative ways to solve the problems generics solve), talk about how Swift implements them and what that means for us (basically, what knowledge needs to be encoded at compile time and why you need type constraints for many uses), and then get into some practical examples of using generics to simplify code design, such as wrapper types to handle manual destruction or locking, custom container wrappers, and UI adapters to make Cocoa views fit better into the Swift world.

I hope that helps. If you have any more questions about it, please feel free to ask me either here or by e-mail.
Oops, I totally forgot about the last question. Yes, there will be lots of time for Q&A and hands-on experimentation and discussion and such. I do a lecture and then we experiment with my pre-made examples, discuss points of confusion, pose wacky hypotheticals, and then do it all again.
