This course is designed to teach you the skills needed to be an app developer capable of bringing your own ideas to life. Whether you’re new to coding or want to expand your skills, by the end of this course you should be able to build a fully functioning app of your own design using Xcode 10 and iOS 12.
The course starts by introducing iOS development tools, basic programming concepts using Swift as the language, and industry best practices. Building on this foundation, you’ll follow a step-by-step curriculum, work through practical exercises, and create apps from scratch.
The theory of Swift is greatly explained on playgrounds and the book, but after so much reading chapter 4 becomes less detailed and outdated it got me searching else where to be able to complete some labs. Talking of labs those on chapter 4 are not that detailed as previos one where codes where included and pictures as well. I think when this book is refreshed maybe with SwiftUI I will give it an another shoot to chapter 4.45
This is a great book. I’ve seen no reason to go out and purchase any other book to help me get into Swift development. That being said, there are errors in this book. For example, on page 103, the screenshot shown should actually be the screenshot on page 100 and vice versa. It’s also for iOS 12 and Xcode 10, but I’ve found that it seems to work just fine in iOS 13 and Xcode 11.45
I read a lot of programming books I rarely leave a review. If you are an aspiring IOS dev or even a hobbiest that feels like other courses, books, or tutorials just don’t cut it I would start here. I am only half way through the book and have learned more then all hours and hours I spent wandering around the web and reading other books. This book is made for the absolute beginner and does a very good job of explaining and teaching you how to think, plan, code and implement your project ideas. I cannot wait for the updated version.55
Could someone from Apple let us know when / if this book will be updated for the current release of iOS, Xcode, and Swift? Thanks!55
I have learned a lot from the previous version of this book, and I fell in love with developing iOS app. Thanks to this book. 💻☕️🥣🛀🛀😘🥳😝😜😛55
Helped me learn the basics of swift, then I was able to create my own (very simple) app - but it worked!55
