Over the last 4 months b2cloud has been busily building Google Glass Apps for the most forward thinking companies in Australia. Not to mention the neat little Apps we have developed for demonstration at events around Australia including Glass Tabs – Learning guitar through Google Glass.
When I began Mac and iOS development I used to stick pretty much as much as possible into interface builder files. When beginning development this was certainly the easiest way to start, but brought some problems. Now I don’t go anywhere near interface builder, and every element in my apps is built in 100% pure code. Last night I was at a Melbourne iOS/Mac developer meetup and this topic came up. For a while I thought that pure code wasn’t widely adopted, but I was reassured with most people in the room confirming that pure code is the way they do things. I will explain some advantages and disadvantages to each method.
