MyVC - a beginner friendly opinionated talk on MVC, Taun Chapman

For beginners, there will be an introduction to MVC (Model View Controller). Followed by how to use classic MVC to have simple, flexible and reusable code with practically empty view controllers.

There will be a simple Swift 4.0 iOS 11 demo app to show the pattern in action. The app will also be available in GitHub after the talk for use as a sample pattern.

Do you want to theme your app? MyVC. Do you want reusable components? MyVC. MVC is 30 years old and still works beautifully for modern apps.
