About this event

Have you ever had the feeling that Auto Layout is way too “auto”? That it does some kind of magic but just not the magic you want? Well, you’re not alone. The tiny blue lines in Interface Builder look pretty self-explanatory but yet developers all over the world spend hours and hours of their time debugging layouts, trying to understand why their views won’t resize the way they’d expect them to and reading through the bulky logs in Xcode that indicate a broken layout.Starting from zero this talk will explain the whole layout process in iOS brick by brick. It will help you get a deep mathematical understanding for layout constraints, the very foundation of Auto Layout. However, you won’t be confronted with much code in this talk. It's called "Feeling Auto Layout" for a reason and includes many animated visuals to let you develop a good intuition for the layout engine in iOS.

Target audience: Beginners and intermediates.
