I currently subscribe to Venmo's style guide.


I lean heavily on xibs in order to build views that are self contained but that can still be created with interface builder. Here is a YouTube video I made on working with xib files from .storyboard: Written article coming soon.

Protocol Oriented Programming

Among the more exciting new features [of Swift] are protocol extensions. In the first version of Swift, it was possible to extend the functionality of existing class, struct and enum types. Now with Swift 2, you can extend a protocol as well.

Here is an article from discussing some protocol features.
I also really liked Apple's video on protocol oriented programming from WWDC 2015.
