NSLondon Q1 2019

Thursday, January 17, 2019 - 18:30

Welcome, NSLondoners!

We've got an awesome couple of speakers (one regular talk and three lightning talks) for you and will be hosted by Trainline. We'll learn a lot, but mostly we'll be really happy to see you all.

There will be food, drink, and good vibes too, in case you needed any for your Thursday evening .

Regular Talk:

Matthew Hasler and Oliver Poole (@trainlineengine) - UI tests without the UI

Lightning Talks:

Sam Clewlow (@dubblewordscore) - This talk aims to change how people think about mobile as a technology, what it means and the impact its having on the world. We'll look at how mobile has developed over the last 20 years from a telephone, to the miniature computers we are familiar with today, and importantly why that has happened. We'll round out by looking at how mobile is driving the future, and how this will change eveything that we know.

Joshua Garnham (@jgarnham) - With the great power of protocols in Swift comes great responsibility. In this talk we’ll build on the teachings of Crusty and look at how we can push protocols to their limits, making use of associated types as well as navigating the minefield that is Collection conformance. Here we’ll discover some pitfalls of the protocol based approach and take a look at some solutions, focussing on the weird and wonderful world that is type erasure.

Douglas Hill (@qdoug) - Full keyboard navigation in iOS apps
