I was inspired today, by a question from another developer, to dig into Xcode’s performance testing.
This is a continuation of my article from June 11, where we created the universal manager to handle all types of deep-linking (notifications, shortcuts, universal links, deeplinks). The only question that we haven’t discussed is:
Reference counting is great in taking unused objects out of memory. The same can be applied to the temporary files we allocate. Taking care of those files manually adds extra complexity and can be easily overseen resulting in an excessive storage use caused by the lost data.
In Bite 315 we started looking at the new Codable protocol in Swift 4. Today we'll learn how to work with Date types when encoding and decoding. Let's dive in. There's a lot more than meets the eye here though. That JSONEncoder we created has some incredibly helpful properties on it.
A behind-the-scenes video worthy of its subject.
