Swift Error Handling like a Boss — Tom Piarulli
If you’ve been learning Swift you’re probably familiar with the new try-catch error handling, but did you know that with things like enums, protocol extensions, and generics you can easily capture and report any error without cluttering up your code? This talk will focus on taking advantage of new Swift concepts to remove the pain from error handling and eliminate the dreaded unknown error.
