As you probably know, in addition to making the book this year, we are also covering the content in screencast form! That way, you can choose how you prefer to learn: either written or video form.

To celebrate the second early access release of the book, we’re releasing another free iOS 10 screencast so you can see what they’re like.

This free screencast is on Measurements and Units, which covers the new classes in Foundation that make working with measurements much easier and less error prone. Enjoy!
