Startup Safari

Let's travel to Berlins most exciting startups, office by office. See what companies do with Swift, iOS and OS X.


Boris Bügling

Swift Package Manager

The recent open source release of Swift included a first-party dependency manager, the Swift Package Manager. Let's see what it does, what's involved in building our own packages, how it works and look at its relation to other dependency managers.

iOS at Contentful and Senior VP of Evil at CocoaPods.

Beyond JSON with FlatBuffers

JSON parsing was the most discussed topic in Swift community. I want to show you that it is possible to avoid it all together.
