Smalltalk - What it is and how it influenced Apple software development for the last 35 yrs., Taun Chapman
This talk will give an overview of the Smalltalk system architecture and how that architecture has influenced Apple development for the last 35 years. It will focus on the technical aspects of Smalltalk with a live demo of a modern Smalltalk system showing how Smalltalk removes many of the pain points programmers experience everyday.
Memory Use in Extensions, Conrad Kramer
It’s been a year since Apple introduced extensions in iOS 8, and developing with them still can be a black box sometimes. I will be talking about the little-known memory limits in extensions, and some common techniques you can use to decrease dirty memory usage. I’ll be drawing from the experience we used to fit the entire Workflow engine into the 16 MB memory limit for notification center widgets.
