What are we building?
In this course, you will learn how to build a complete version of Instagram ready to be published on the App Store. We will be building all the core components of a social network. This includes following users, making posts, liking/commenting on posts, in-app notifications, creating a user profile, and registering users. Throughout the process, you will develop high level programming, app design and app development skills. We will be building this without the use of storyboards, fully programmatically.
Some programming and basic Xcode experience is preferred. The course will move a little fast if you're a complete beginner, but you will pick things up along the way.
Why take this course?
Learning advanced development skills should be taught using real world examples. This course will teach you how to build a fully functional social network, from complete scratch. You will be learning advanced front and backend development skills, from a real life professional developer. You will learn how to code like a pro, and everything will be explained in detail along the way. This will teach you to build production ready applications, that are easily scalable and maintainable.

I am a professional, self taught iOS Developer with 2 apps published to the App Store. In my courses I will teach you everything I learned on my journey to becoming a professional iOS Developer, from knowing nothing about programming at all!
Because I am self-taught, I understand what all levels of developers need to improve. Take my courses and let me know what you think!
