The goal is for everyone to take the skills learned throughout this course and apply them to the challenges. This will allow you to gain more experience through actual work and collaboration.
This is not just a course but a growing community to constantly push the limits and share and collaborate.
Have you taken an iOS development course that has left you with more questions? Do you have the basic fundamentals, but want to take your knowledge to the next level? If so, this course is for you!
You can Step It UP using REST-APIs. Through this interactive course, you will have the opportunity to use available APIs to build apps that are specific to your interests and build incredible mobile apps.
With each of the 77 lectures building off of the proceeding one, you’ll build a music video app from scratch following the model-view-controller design pattern and best coding practices. You will have the opportunity for hands on practice to apply the newly acquired skills to your own concept through challenges and exercises.
After the completion of this course our journey just begins. You will have the opportunity to continue your education by watching a new lecture presented every month. Your feedback will determine the direction of additional content in the bonus section.
I look forward to taking this journey with you.
Who this course is for:
- This course is designed for developers who already have taken prior iOS development course.
- You should be comfortable working with Xcode integrated development environment.
- You should have a basic understanding of the Swift programming language.
Michael A. Rudowsky, Founder of MAR Software Technologies LLC has thirty plus years experience working in information technology and has been passionate about computers since the late 1970's. In the early 1980's Michael mastered UNIX and C programming languages and served as the CO-OP student with Revlon Inc. After graduation Michael was offered a full-time position involving mainframe technologies such as COBOL, CICS, JCL and DB2.
At the COMDEX exhibitions in Las Vegas, the largest computer trade show in the world, Michael represented Revlon. He was responsible for the review of new hardware and software solutions for the company. As one of the first beta testers for Realia COBOL, Michael enabled COBOL and CICS applications to run on IBM PCs. He worked closely with BARR systems to enable PC's to dial up and act as the Mainframe printer from any remote location. These two technologies allowed him to develop the first PC application to run on IBM PC in the production environment at Revlon.
In the 1990′s, Michael moved into consulting, working with several of the fortune 500 companies like: Merrill Lynch, Johnson and Johnson, Merck and Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. He got involved in Client Server, Web Applications, Database Design and Data Warehousing projects. In 1999 he accepted an employee position at MetLife where he moved into management leveraging his technical abilities to work on company strategic projects.
In 2004, he moved to American International Group and got involved with Architecture Design, Process Improvement, Data Center Consolidation, Office Virtualization and Disaster Recovery. One of his biggest accomplishments at AIG was the planning and delivery of Next Generation Booking Service which consolidated the booking function across several underwriting applications in the organization.
In 2014, Michael started MAR Software Technologies based on a vision that every single one of us has the ability to learn how to program. If you can read, you can program!
App Development is an incredible empowering skill to learn. He wants to inspire as many people as he can. To bring out your creativity and to empower you to pass it forward to inspire others. He believes together we can plant the seed of knowledge that can grow and make a difference in people's life's.
Michael is committed to this vision and he will play his small part to make this happen.
Michael graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in Business Administration from Centenary College in 2013 and A.A.S. in Computer Science from Middlesex County College in 1984.
