Media Frameworks and Swift: This Is Fine
March 9 @ 6:30 pm
Starting at 6:30pm, we’ll have free food sponsored by Arbormoon Software, Inc. Please RSVP to help us estimate how much food we need. While you are enjoying the food, talk with other developers and network in the local Cocoa community.
Our main meeting will start at 7pm and will feature a talk by Chris Adamson on Media Framworks and Swift.
Swift is great for writing iOS and Mac apps, and its creators also mean for it to be used as a systems programming language. However, certain traits about Swift make it officially off-limits for use in some audio/video-processing scenarios. What’s the deal, is it not fast enough or what? We’ll look at what media apps can and can’t do in Swift, and what you’re supposed to do instead. We’ll also look at strategies for knowing what responsibilities to dole out to Swift and to C, and how to make those parts of your code play nicely with each other.
