Hey there everyone, @raywenderlich
I would like to suggest a new subject for the RW team, and was curious to know who is up to it.
The subject is an intermediate++ tutorial on how to code without the Storyboard. i joined this group of developers thanks to @brianvoong and i can tell you guys that my understanding of iOS has sky rocketed.
let me know what you guys think.
@yoele Thanks very much for your question! The reality is that Storyboards are not going anywhere, and it is a fact that Apple pushes developers to use storyboards. Having said that, we will definitely consider your suggestion
All the best!
What would be your reasoning for this? Doing everything by code makes things much more complicated. You visually see exactly what you’re getting with a storyboard. If you do it in code, you really need to be intimately familiar with your project to know what it’s supposed to be doing and look like. That seems like a no-brainer, but when you come back to a project 6 months later and you’re looking at 50 lines of UI code, instead of a picture in a storyboard, it’s painful.
Well first of all I’m a Programer not a Designer, Storyboard is nice when you are making small projects, but once you go big I can tell you code is much better, its much faster (compile time), easier to reuse, you will have a deeper understanding of Swift & iOS, this is my opinion from my experience, I’m not against Storyboard, I do use it from time to time but if you want to get better you should try it.
Have a great day
Many developers use Auto Layout in code. I know first hand that many large scale projects do this. Why? There are many reasons:
- Some developers prefer code over to storyboards. It’s just preference.
- Doing things in code forces a developer to ensure they know what they are doing.
- Doing UI in code as opposed to using storyboards prevents countless problems using Git (trust me when I say this, this is a real issue when you work in teams).
There are other reasons, but these are the obvious ones.
