*Last Month in iOS Development* A short group discussion about iOS- and developer-related news from the previous month. *Promises and MBaaS: A Natural Fit* As iOS developers, there’s continual pressure on us to deliver solutions bigger, better, and faster in the same or less time frame. Swift frameworks like PromiseKit aim to streamline the development and test cycle by condensing complex asynchronous code into a manageable step-by-step way to structure your code without getting trapped in the callback pyramid of doom. Since so much of our asynchronous code is due to calling server-side network requests, we’ll also cover using Amazon Web Services as a Mobile Backend as a service provider and how PromiseKit and AWS fit together. I’ll demo these two concepts with a new app feature I’m building into my MobiLinc home automation products. — Wes Filleman Wes Filleman is an independent iOS app developer since 2008 focusing on the connected home with the MobiLinc line of iOS/Android apps. *Mobile Backend as a Service Discussion* With the recent news that Parse’s days are numbered, let’s discuss our experiences with it and other MBaaS options.


We meet on the second Thursday of every month, with presentations and discussions on iOS and OS X development. Learn more at our Meetup group:
