Summary

In this chapter, we discussed topics that are not directly related to coding, but as iOS developers, they are crucial. Remember that most mobile teams are small – sometimes, a team includes only one developer, so being a mature and professional developer is crucial.

This chapter is unique – instead of talking about coding, it examined quality and communication. These skills are harder to test and even harder to show in an interview. But in good workplaces with an effective process, these topics will pop up in one way or another.

In the next chapter, we will discuss perhaps the most crucial framework of iOS development: UIKit. No iOS interview can conclude without questions being asked about that framework.
