Where To Go From Here?

To see the completed project for this AsyncDisplayKit 2.0 tutorial, download it here. If you’re wanting to see all this in Swift, we’ve got that too.

When you’re ready, move on to part 2 to learn about the powerful new layout system introduced with AsyncDisplayKit 2.0.

If you’d rather do a little more research before moving on, you can check out AsyncDisplayKit’s home page and read through some of the documentation. Scott Goodson (the original author of AsyncDisplayKit) also has a few talks you may be interested in, the newest of which gives a good overview of some of the bigger picture problems the framework is trying to tackle.

You may also be interested in the Building Paper event. Although none of this was open sourced at that time, and a lot has changed, it’s pretty interesting to see where it all started.

Lastly, as part of the AsyncDisplayKit community’s legendary reputation for welcoming newcomers, there is a public Slack channel where anyone is invited to come and ask questions!
