Paul Ardeleanu on “Test or GTFO – a guide on how to write better Swift for iOS”

Let’s meet Paul Ardeleanu, yet another one of the great speakers joining us at MobOS 2018.

Paul is a software engineer, trainer and speaker specialised in data-driven solutions on Apple platforms with an emphasis on prototyping, best practices and balance with agility. He started programming back in the days of Fortran, graduated with a PhD in Computational Physics from
UCLan and currently hailing from London, UK. He blogs on [Medium]( ), often [tweets]( ) and, in his spare time, is bootstrapping [http://Event.Run ]( ).

His presentation topic at the conference is obout “Test or GTFO – a guide on how to
write better Swift for iOS”
. Some words about it, to get you curious:

Whilst not a panacea for your development troubles (but certainly a headache for many), Test Driven Development (or any of its incarnations) can prove something of a silver bullet if done correctly and consistently. Cleaner code and shorter QA cycles are two of the best benefits.

In this talk, Paul will get you started with TDD in Swift, best practices and tools available. We’ll be looking at prototyping & writing tests in Xcode Playgrounds before migrating to a project, the benefit of writing various types of tests and using 3rd party frameworks.
