Debugging EXC_BAD_ACCESS Errors with NSZombieEnabled

iPhone Summit at Cloud Expo One of the biggest problems developers have when building apps for the iPhone is memory violations. A lot of developers, especially those who come from a Java or .NET background, have trouble adjusting to an environment where they need to manually keep track of reference counts and they need to be explicitly aware of their own memory management. I've known quite a few developers who tried their hand at programming for the iPhone and they threw up their hands and quit when they started trying to track down memory problems. I'm certainly not condoning that kind of behavior, I'm just recognizing that the lack of built-in garbage collection represents both a learning curve and a frustration obstacle for new iPhone developers, whether they've been doing other programming for 2 or 20 years. Thankfully, there's something you can do about it. O... (more)

SPDY versus HTML5 WebSockets

A recent post on the HTTP 2.0 War beginning garnered a very relevant question regarding WebSockets and where it fits in (what might shape up to be) an epic battle. The answer to the question, “Why not consider WebSockets here?” could be easily answered with two words: HTTP headers. It could also be answered with two other words: infrastructure impact. But I’m guessing Nagesh (and others) would like a bit more detail on that, so here comes the (computer) science. Different Solutions Have Different Impacts Due to a simple (and yet profound) difference between the two implementations, WebSockets is less likely to make an impact on the web (and yet more likely to make an impact inside data centers, but more on that another time). Nagesh is correct in that in almost all the important aspects, WebSockets and SPDY are identical (if not in implementation, in effect). Both ... (more)
