During our iOS development course, you’ll learn various languages, or frameworks, used in iOS development. These include Swift 4 and Uikit framework. You will also learn:
Apple has their own code editor, and we cover the design and debugging features that are built into the coding environment to help you become comfortable making and submitting apps. There are lots of ins and outs to learn, but we’ll get you using Xcode everyday.
Work with Apple’s brand new programming language, Swift. Be ready for Swift iOS development projects. Swift building will give you the advantage you need to find a great job in iOS development.
While Swift is the future of iOS development, Objective-C has a long history as the main programming language on iOS. Knowing Objective-C is a vital skill for iOS developers. You’ll learn Objective-C, including writing an app in it, so that you’ll be well prepared to read and understand the wealth of Objective-C available, and you’ll be comfortable working on any project.
In order to make great apps, they have to look good too. We’ll teach you about auto layout, custom animations, and other practices for building beautiful app interfaces. This way, you’ll have the programming knowledge to build beautiful apps.
Once you know how to program beautiful apps, you need to design the layout and look of those apps. We’ll cover common looks, as well as processes for designing. Additionally, you’ll learn the differences in UI Design for the iPhone and iPad.
There is more to programming than typing code. Great programmers use their knowledge of application architecture to design systems that are reliable, robust, easy to update in the future, and easy for other developers to understand. In our course we’ll cover architectures and design patterns that iOS developers need to know to build code that lasts.
Every app has to deal with collecting, indexing, and displaying data. Our course will cover different data models, incorporating third-party code, and generating data-filled displays with dynamic information. We’ll also teach you about algorithms and data structures that you can use to make your app handle data as efficiently as possible.
You can’t build apps without learning how to debug them. We’ll train you on several methods for identifying and fixing bus, including Xcode tools, Apple Documentation, and a myriad of online resources. Our instructors and mentors will also guide you through common programming mistakes, and the problems you face while building your own apps.
Finally, when you’re ready with that perfectly-prepared app, you need to submit it to the App Store. We’ll guide you through the process of registering as an Apple Developer, submitting your apps for review, code signing, provisioning, and testing your apps. We’ve helped students launch hundreds of apps - and we’ll include marketing advice for succeeding in the app marketplace.
