Regain Control of Untamed iOS Code

Structure and build your iOS code for maintainability.
Then you can respond to change, because your code won’t fight you.

Never seen anyone refactor like that

Jon introduced Test Driven Development to the team and led by example. I've never seen anyone refactor the large code-base that we had and contribute to new features at the same time.

How to Write Clean Code

Unit Testing

A robust suite of unit tests acts as a safety harness, giving you courage to make bold changes. But there’s an art to making tests that give you useful information, while keeping the tests themselves readable & maintainable.



Unit tests written after production code are hard to write, and may only confirm your biases. Test Driven Development shapes production code in response to tests, in an evolutionary manner. The secret sauce? Continuous Refactoring.



We can’t just bang code together and expect it to be testable. Testability must be designed in. That design brings other benefits, making it easier to modify the code. The ultimate goal? Drive down your cost of change.

When I was just starting with unit testing, I attended a talk from Jon on the different types of unit testing. Jon really helped me understand how all of the pieces come together. I now ensure that all of my iOS code has changes that are covered by unit tests. A lot of Jon's posts on Quality Coding help with understanding ways in which you can write tests for tricky components unique to your ecosystem.

Jon approaches software as a craftsman. In my years as a professional, learning from Jon has probably been the single biggest influence on the way I write software today.
