One billion iPhone and iPad users are waiting for the next amazing app. It’s time for you to build it! If you’ve programmed in another language like Python or JavaScript, it’s a breeze to pick up Apple’s powerful Swift language.

In this course, expert instructor Craig Grummitt brings his 20 years of development experience to you. You’ll explore what makes Swift tick, and learn how to use it to build iOS apps as you make your first one: an interactive book tracker with a ratings system, barcode scanner, and more! You’ll start with a tour of Xcode and the Swift language. Next, you’ll dig in deep to essential iOS details such as navigating between scenes, adaptive layout, background tasks, displaying data, storing data. As you work through the modules and build your fully working app from basic idea to completed and ready for the world, you’ll top off your learning with a look at debugging techniques, and publishing your app to the app store, all ready to enter the exciting world of iOS development!

Apple’s Swift language makes iOS development easier than ever, offering modern language features, seamless integration with all iOS libraries, and the top-notch Xcode development environment. Swift is immediately comfortable to programmers familiar with Python, JavaScript, Java, C#, or other similar languages. Its modern feel and features empower you to explore new projects with less friction in the dev process.

Inside:

  • An introduction to Swift and iOS development
  • Building an app from idea to the app store
  • Working with functions, structures, and protocols
  • Discovering the Xcode Playground
  • Editing your app’s user interface
  • Debugging and publishing your finished app to the app store

Designed for intermediate web or mobile developers comfortable with a language like Python, JavaScript, Java, or C#. No prior experience with Swift assumed.
