Living with Auto Layout

A session at CocoaConf DC 2013

  • Jack Cox

Friday 22nd March, 2013

2:30pm to 3:30pm (EST)

In anticipation of the iPhone 5¹s taller screen, Apple unleashed auto layout on iOS developers with iOS 6. Auto layout requires a new approach to building interfaces and a new level of attention to detail to achieve stable and pleasing interfaces. Using experience gained working on a large iPad application, this presentation will examine practices used to manage and control user interfaces with auto layout. The presentation aims to answer some common questions that developers have when using auto layout, such as:

What the heck did interface builder just do?
Why can't I just set the frame?
How can I be in control of my interfaces again?
I just want the error messages to stop, please make them stop.
Just how is auto layout better than springs and struts?
