  1. Better iOS App Architecture With MVVM

    2 Posts
    MVC stands for Model-View-Controller, and it's a widespread architectural pattern for software development. It's the de facto design pattern for Cocoa development, and it has been for many, many years. Most of us can't imagine building applications without it. Both UIKit (iOS) and AppKit (macOS) make frequent use of MVC. It almost seems as if we don't have another option to build applications for iOS, tvOS, macOS, and watchOS.

  4. Data Validation With Core Data

    2 Posts
    No matter what persistence framework an application uses, the developer decides what is stored in the application's persistent store. This also means that the developer is in charge of validating the data before it is inserted into the persistent store. If your application uses Core Data for persisting data, then you are in luck. The framework has a number of APIs for validating objects before they are persisted to disk. In this series, I show you what options Core Data offers developers for validating objects.
