We have TWO special guests this month – Daniel Steinberg and BJ Miller are visiting from the awesome Cleveland Cocoaheads to present.

Phantom Types by Daniel Steinberg

In this short, fast-moving talk we’ll begin with typealiases and move on to more robust ways of identifying and working with types in Swift. We’ll explore Phantom Types – generics that aren’t actually used in the types that declare them – and see how far we get to distinguishing between types with these things that don’t exist.

Daniel has written code for Apple platforms since System 7. Currently he loves to code, write about, and teach Swift on iOS and macOS through his company Dim Sum Thinking (http://dimsumthinking.com). He is working on updating his book “A Swift Kickstart” and keeps meaning to write a sequel.

Get In The Fastlane by BJ Miller

I will be presenting on some of the cool, useful features of the open-source suite of tools called Fastlane. You may have heard of it, or even used it, as it was originally created by Felix Krause, then acquired by Twitter, and now Google. iOS development rocks, but sometimes the things you have to do to automate things or deliver your app to the App Store just suck. Fastlane automates what sucks. At the risk of sounding corny with a terrible joke, buckle up for the Fastlane! (except in Ohio, where people like to just drive the speed limit or slower in the fast lane)

When not coding, I enjoy spending time with my family, getting too many tattoos, learning as much as possible about all things mobile and crypto-currency-related, and playing any game in The Legend of Zelda series with my kids.

What is Cocoaheads (http://cocoaheads.org/)?

CocoaHeads is a group devoted to discussion of Apple Computer’s Cocoa Framework for programming on MacOS X and iOS (including the iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch). During monthly meetings, members present on their projects and offer tutorials on various programming topics.
