Mantle is a model framework for iOS that provides a convenient way to create objects from JSON and transform those objects back into JSON. This is especially useful when dealing with a remote API. We are going to take a look at MTLModel, MTLJSONAdapter and why you might want to consider using Mantle for your next project.
Blocks were introduced way back in iOS 4 and OSX 10.6, but their syntax is sometimes quite confusing and hard to understand. We are going to look at blocks that you might already be familiar with and come up with use cases where you might want to introduce blocks in your own code.
