60+ Tools and Services for API and Webhook Logging, Debugging, Testing, Monitoring, Documentation and Discovery — John Sheehan
Pretty much every day someone asks me if there's a tool for solving a specific API problem. While Runscope solves many API problems (particularly debugging, testing and monitoring) for app developers, there are many things we don't do. My goal with this post is to list out all the API tools that I know of and frequently recommend to people. Some even compete with us, but the more the merrier.

NSOperation - NSHipster
The secret to making apps snappy is to offload as much unnecessary work to the background as possible, and in this respect, the modern Cocoa developer has two options: Grand Central Dispatch and NSOperation. This article will primarily focus on the latter, though it's important to note that the two are quite complementary (more on that later).
