Too Long; Didn't Read

Boris has been working as an iOS Developer for more than five years. His latest article was about the OperationQueue upgrade, which is available if you want to synchronize the execution of asynchronous requests. He hopes to inspire other developers to be less focused on established solutions, not use them as the only answer.

So, let’s start! Tell us a bit about yourself—for example, name, profession, and personal interests.

Hey, everyone! I am Boris; I have worked as an iOS Developer for more than five years. I have managed to develop many different projects from scratch since then.

One of the most fascinating parts of being a developer is finding a solution that, on the one hand, will satisfy business and, on the other, allow the project to grow technically.

Interesting! What was your latest Hackernoon Top story about?

My last article was about the OperationQueue upgrade, which is available if you want to synchronize the execution of asynchronous requests. The main problem for this task is the inability of OperationQueue to work with asynchronous code. In other words, OperationQueue thinks the operation has been completed if its synchronous part has been executed.


You will face the problem every time you want to complete an operation after finishing asynchronous tasks.

Do you usually write on similar topics? If not, what do you usually write about?

I usually highlight the importance of a couple of topics, let’s say architecture approaches or memory management, but I aim to show the importance of escaping routine things to take a look wider and offer a more elegant solution.

Therefore, I would like my articles to inspire other developers to be less focused on established solutions, not use them as the only answer, and therefore stop self-development.

Great! What is your usual writing routine like (if you have one?)

Offering any unique solution usually takes time. I can do a lot of exercises before real writing.

First of all, it’s necessary to pick a task where I believe my knowledge can be helpful.

Second, it’s important to research all the existing solutions. I can spend at least a week gathering and processing all the materials relating to the problem.

And then, I may start idea-generating.

Of course, sometimes a new life hack can come up unexpectedly.

Being a tech writer can be a challenge. It’s not often our main role, but it's an addition to another one. What is the biggest challenge you have when it comes to writing?

When it comes to writing the biggest challenge for me is objectivity. Achievement objectivity usually takes a lot of resources from my side.

What is the next thing you hope to achieve in your career?

I imagine my next milestone will be a book that will be used to conduct and prepare interviews with iOS developers. I’ve already come up with the structure of the book and prepared the necessary material.

Wow, that’s admirable. Now, something more casual: What is your guilty pleasure of choice?

I have a ritual: I drink coffee every morning. One day I will have to pay for every caramel syrup or sugar in my mug, but at the moment it helps me prepare for the day ahead.

My hobby is traveling. The world is so vast and diverse. I have already visited about 20 countries and so far, so many interesting things await. It encourages me

What can the Hacker Noon community expect to read from you next?

There will be more tips and tricks for project optimisation and non-obvious architecture approaches, I promise.

What’s your opinion on HackerNoon as a platform for writers?

It’s an amazing platform for new authors to express themselves and for experienced writers to share their expert opinions with their audience.

Thanks for taking time to join our “Meet the writer” series. It was a pleasure. Do you have any closing words?

I would like to thank HackerNoon for this opportunity; I look forward to further successful cooperation.
