Preheating Images with Nuke

The prefetch APIs for UITableView and UICollectionView are great for preemptively loading pages of data, as we saw in episode 315. However, to take full advantage of this API we should also leverage loading or processing data related to the cells we are about to show. One common example of this is fetching an image before the cell comes on screen. In this episode we will implement this with a handy library called Nuke. The result is quite impressive.
