Introduction to Programming in Swift 5
Welcome to Introduction to Programming in Swift 5. In this course we will introduce you to the absolute basics of the Swift programming language. Whether you are a brand new programmer or have experience with other programming languages this course is for you. Some of the things you will learn in this course are: • An Introduction to Swift 5 programming concepts • Installing the necessary tools • Working with data such as Integers and Strings • Creating reusable code with functions • Working with data constructs such as arrays and dictionaries • Object-oriented programming • Model View Controller By the end of this course you will know how to build simple programs with the Swift programming language and you will be ready to learn iOS mobile development.
Introduction to iOS App Development with Swift 5
Welcome to Introduction to iOS Application Development with Swift 5. In this course you'll use your Swift skills to create iOS applications. Some of the things you will learn in this course are: • Write the code to build your very first iOS application • Manage screen display with multiple views • Use auto layout and the interface builder • Create applications with user interaction • Design a user interface allowing for multiple screen size and direction • Write and execute unit tests to keep your code error-free • Perform various calculations using Swift By the end of this course you will know how to build simple iOS applications and you'll be ready to move on and learn about using tables and data in iOS.
Tables, Data & Networking in iOS
In this course you will learn how to work with data in iOS. Data is the key ingredient for any functional app and one must learn how to properly display it to the user. You will learn how to use tables and collection views to display data to users, and how to use Core Data to build more robust, data-driven applications. Every app must have data. Making web requests is by far the most common thing you will do as an iOS developer. You will learn how to get your apps working with servers and external data. Throughout the course, you will create a ToDo app, including learning how to decode data from a web server as well as how to make POST requests.
iOS App Store & In-App Purchases
This course teaches basics of monetization on iOS, starting with in-app ads and then moving to in-app purchases. You will learn more advanced in-app purchase integrations, and you'll make both consumable and non-consumable purchases while building a realistic iOS app. Finally, you will learn how to take your apps even further with in-app subscriptions, and how to start and cancel subscriptions and create a delightful user experience.
There is no specific background necessary. This program starts from the very basics and teaches you Swift and iOS app development.
