Visualizing Graphs in Swift - iOS Conf SG 2016

Published on: Sunday, 23 October 2016

Speaker: Conrad Kramer (@conradev), Workflow

In this talk I will walk through building an interactive graph visualization that doubles as a physics simulation, and I’ll be building it from scratch. I will be writing a version of this demo in Swift 3.

Building the force directed graph layout will involve building a quad tree (yay recursive enums) to efficiently simulate Coulomb’s Law and a custom animator to coordinate the simulation. Finally I will also walk through how this can be embedded in a playground with explanatory markdown to teach the same principles.
