…you can see, it gives the parameters passed in more meaning during the method invocation. Now most Rubyists won't call methods with "magic numbers/strings" and you can achieve the same thing in < Ruby 2.0 by accepting a hash but I think this is a nice little addition.
Next I'd like to discuss generating and organizing views. MVC in iOS is a little different from MVC in Ruby on Rails, in that views are a little more tightly coupled to the controller. View elements …
