The Xcode Expressions Window

Last week I asked folks on twitter whether they’d like a tutorial on using the Expressions window in Xcode for debugging. Many people replied that they’d never heard of it, so I decided it was probably worth doing.

I’ve just added the tutorial over on the Tutorials page: Using the Expressions Window

The Expressions window is a powerful debugging tool available in Xcode that allows you to evaluate expressions or even call methods on your objects while stopped at a breakpoint in your code. Check out the tutorial for an introduction to some of the cool things you can do with it.

You’ll also noticed that I added a new page in the sidebar for Essays. I’ll group blog posts related to art and video games under that page. Right now there’s just one from January of this year, but I’ve been working on a new one that I hope to have up soon.
