Friday Q&A Live or: mikeash rambles about stuff
Summary: mikeash brings something vaguely resembling his Friday Q&A blog articles to the world of podcasting. In this irregular podcast, he discusses weird technical stuff in the world of Mac and iOS programming.
In episode 3, I quickly review the iPhone X (spoiler: it's nice), talk about my efforts to benchmark the user-facing speed of iPhones, and conclude with a discussion of how Swift types relate to set theory and what that means for structs and enums. Audio editing for this episode was by @josevazquez.
In episode 2, I discuss my recently released volumes of The Complete Friday Q&A, discuss Swift Optionals, why people have so much trouble with them, and how they're actually something most of us have dealt with for a long time, and finally end with a discussion of how wiping and restoring my iPhone made it way faster despite the fact that this makes no sense.
Friday Q&A Live kicks off with a discussion of the crazy stuff I did to satisfy my obsession with unsmoothed Monaco 9 as my coding font.
