Building Frameworks Natively in Swift

Tuesday, 28 August, 11:30 AM to 12:00 PM
Joel Rennich, Orchard & Grove

You've got a number of projects? You like working natively in Swift? You have code being re-used between projects? This talk will cover how to put your native Swift code into a framework that can then be shared between other projects and even other developers. The session will cover the drop bears that live in Swift frameworks and the potential benefits of doing this.

Topics to be covered include: why do this as a framework, how to use a Swift framework within an Xcode Workspace, distributing your framework to others, and, most importantly, how a framework could save you you lots of work on your own projects.

A sample Swift framework that you can build on will also be included.
