On Stacktrace, we’re not afraid to dive deep into the code and nerd out about technical things. Even though we can get very technical, we always try to explain things in a way non-developers can understand too, going behind-the-scenes on scoops you’re already reading on 9to5Mac.
What could an iPhone without any ports look like, and is it likely that Apple would ever adopt USB-C for the iPhone? Also, Mac development, using multiple programming languages, sharing utilities between projects, and much more.
This week, John and Rambo go on a deep dive into the responder chain and how UI events are propagated on Apple’s platforms. Also, SwiftUI vs Catalyst, Apple’s mysterious new QR codes for AR, and a visit to the Sundell R&D division.
The recent Facebook SDK crashing incident leads John and Rambo into a deep-dive on third party SDKs and various ways to handle them. Also, new thoughts and details on the rumored AirPods Studio headphones, how writing about a topic can make you re-examine your opinions on it, and the launch of FusionCast.
John automates the deployment of his website, which just celebrated its third birthday (or is it “anniversary”?), Rambo is about to launch a new app, and the two go on a deep dive into the iOS 13.5 beta and Apple + Google’s “Exposure notification” system for tracking the spread of COVID-19.
John and Rambo return to the topic of app architecture, this time to discuss how to build scalable code bases using the MVC design pattern, and also talk about what Apple’s pro-level apps (including Xcode) might look like if ported to the iPad.
