UICollectionView Presentation

I did a presentation on UICollectionView at TACOW last night. The presentation is a little different than I normally do for a technical talk because I didn’t go through the API, but rather focused on the three most important messages to remember when working with UICollectionView:

  1. UICollectionView is just like UITableView.
  2. UICollectionView separates dequeuing logic from display and layout.
  3. UICollectionView makes complex layouts easy.

I didn’t go over the minutiae of how to use them because there is the documentation for that. I focused on the what rather than the how – I tried to inspire my audience with what was possible instead of being tied down with implementation details.
