Thank you for checking out my course :) "Apple Watch Programming for iOS Developers" will help you enter the exciting world of WatchKit. This course assumes you have some iOS programming experience and dives right into the specific tools you need to make WatchOS 3 apps.

Topics we cover include:

  • Notifications
  • Complications (have your app on the watch face!)
  • Syncing Data Between Phone and Watch
  • Standalone Apps
  • Timers
  • Design Techniques Specific to Apple Watch

In this course, we'll be creating complete apps that you can install on your very own watch or upload to the App Store. For each app we make you will receive completed source code so that you can always check your work against mine as a reference.

What makes Nick the right instructor?

  • I have more than 10 iOS apps in the App Store which total over 300,000+ downloads
  • Since the watch launched, I had a watch app in the App Store
  • I've taught more than 23,000 other students in my conglomerate of highly rated iOS development Udemy courses

Mobile Developer for iOS and Django Web Developer

I'm Nick Walter, an iOS developer that has been focused on mobile app design and creation for over 3 years. My involvement in the iOS community started off with a bang, and in 2013 I was one of 25 students worldwide to be invited to Apple's "Cocoa Camp." Within my community, I am also co-president of an Apple developer group called "Cocoa Heads."

I've always had an itch to make things, but growing up in a small town I had limited access to programming resources. This frustration drove my early interest in online education. After experimenting with various companies, learning styles, and teaching processes, I've adopted the best strategies and used them in my courses. My experience as an online student has directly influenced my teaching style, and I am now proud to help students all over the world with their online learning goals.

Since the announcement of the new Swift programming language by Apple, I have buried myself in the Apple documentation and any online resource that is available. In my first Swift course, I provide students with a detailed explanation of the topics and skills needed to learn Swift, an overview of the basic features of the new language, and get you started to begin building your first products.

Prior to teaching the internet's first course on Swift, I have created 5 iOS apps from scratch that are currently live in the App Store and being used by thousands of users worldwide. Using my experience launching my own apps, I'll walk you through the shortcuts that can save you time and frustration from having to teach yourself.
