"Solving Problems in Auto Layout"

Auto layout is hard. It requires developers to think different about structuring and manipulating views. If the developer doesn't express themselves precisely the results can be grotesque. This talk will cover some uses of auto layout that bedevil developers like: using auto layout in scroll views, self sizing tables and collections, debugging conflicts, and animating views when auto layout is involved. The talk will provide both the principles behind auto layout and practical examples of ways to solve these problems.
