We need a Safari View Controller link

Bryan Irace:

It’d be wonderful if Apple provided a “Safari view controller” that developers could present directly from within their applications. This controller would run out of process and work almost exactly like MFMailComposeViewController and MFMessageComposeViewController already do for composing emails and text messages respectively. The app would provide the controller with a URL (and optionally, a tint color), but otherwise what the user does in it would remain secure and isolated from any third-party code, yet fully integrated with Safari.app and Safari controllers presented by other applications.

This can’t happen soon enough.

Smooth asynchronous user interfaces for iOS apps — AsyncDisplayKit link

Facebook open-sourced their AsyncDisplayKit:

AsyncDisplayKit is an iOS framework that keeps even the most complex user interfaces smooth and responsive. It was originally built to make Facebook’s Paper possible, and goes hand-in-hand withpop’s physics-based animations — but it’s just as powerful with UIKit Dynamics and conventional app designs.

They’ve mentioned this multiple times before in their tech talks on Paper, I’m glad it’s finally out.

How to host speakers who also happen to be parents of young children link

My former boss Caroline gives some great advice on how to accomodate parents as speakers:

A tiny human shouldn’t get in the way of a great talk though. And it turns out that a lot of great speakers also become parents. As a conference organizer, what can you do to help make your event more accommodating for a speaker with a baby (and thus get a kick-ass presentation)?
