Users care about experience not technology
I know how we love to talk about cool technologies and how we solve complicated problems. Those are things we as developers and makers are interested in hearing about. But your user doesn't care about them, so stop telling them about it.

Tips on maintaining a healthy code base and why it matters
Over time code gets dusty just like everything else. Maybe it's old libraries or old techniques. Or worse, maybe it is something in the language that is now deprecated and will eventually stop working altogether. All good reasons to maintain a healthy code base, so let's talk about that and some suggestions on how to manage it.

It's the Pre-WWDC21 episode. So it's time to talk about how we try to start healing the wounds and what is causing them between Apple and developers.

Using the EnvironmentObject to make data available to SwiftUI views
More than likely you have more than one view in your SwiftUI based application. If that is the case then you probably need to share data across those views and always have them displaying the latest data right? That's where the environment object comes into play, this makes it possible to do just that. I'll walk through the steps on how I recently implemented it in an application. I will also be releasing a video soon, so if you are interested and want to know when that comes out head over to compileswift.com/contact and let me know.

Sharing Data Across Multiple SwiftUI Views
SwiftUI has a great way to handle data in your applications once you understand it. This week as I work on the next part of my SwiftUI application series on Patreon I had to dive in and discover @State @ObservableObject and @EnvironmentObject to be able to use my data across the application and have SwiftUI take care of all the UI updates for me as the data changed. Once you understand how it works using just a few lines of code to set everything up, it will handle a lot of the data management for you in the background. In this episode, I'll explain how I set it up and what I learned along the way.

Should Apple Still Release Yearly OS'?
I feel it is time for a discussion on the release cycle of Apple software, are they trying to meet impossible deadlines and still deliver good quality releases? I think it might be time for every other year major releases. Plus, embracing dark mode on iOS needs a plan, some thoughts on how to go about adopting it.

Apple September Event, iOS/iPadOS 13.1? Plus my macOS Catalina Beta 7 Experiences
This week, Apple sent out invitations to the September event, as usual we expect it to be iPhones and maybe something more? But the logo is always great fun in these invitations, I have my theories on what it means. We also got an interesting situation with the iOS and iPadOS 13 beta's, we got a .1 release even before 13.0 shipped. I'll take a little about what that might mean and how it ties in with the September event. Then in the last section, I installed macOS Catalina beta 7 because it is the only way I get to try out the preview system in Xcode 11. But the more interesting part is my experiences with the new security systems. Support This Podcast? If you would like to support this Podcast, I have a Patreon page.
