This is the class I wish I had when I was trying to learn iOS development. I have a unique perspective to teach this class because I've been the newb that couldn't understand tutorials or blog posts. No prior programming experience is required.
I will walk you through everything you need to start making apps. Getting Xcode (the program we use to make apps) setup and on your machine, making a developer account with Apple, and running the iPhone and iPad simulator on your mac.
I firmly believe that the best way to learn is by doing. So we'll make a series of 8 killer apps, each app going into depth on teaching the most important iOS app development skills. Here is an overview of the apps we'll be making:Apps that...
- ...record audio with the microphone
- ...use the front and rear cameras on iOS devices
- ...leverage game principles (FLAPPY BIRD clone)
- ...connect with Twitter
- ...use GPS information
- ...connect with PARSE to make a social network
- ...use Bluetooth
- ...and more
Once each of these apps are built, I'll teach you everything you need to know to submit these apps to the App Store. We'll also cover how to make money in iOS, and how you can continue to stay in the loop as an iOS developer and keep up with the latest and greatest. These topics could be a whole class in and of itself!
What makes me the right teacher?
- I have 9 iOS apps in the App Store which total over 300,000+ downloads
- I teach more than 17,000 other students in my conglomerate of highly rated Udemy courses
- I use an energetic and engaging course style that involves students. I guess you could say, I'm far from a robot… and it should be entertaining :)
- I have been doing iOS development for 4+ years
- When I was first learning iOS development, I was often confused by wordy blog posts and tutorials. I'll never talk over your head.
- I created the first Udemy Swift course and also teach the highly rated “Apple Watch - Go From Newbie to Pro by Building 15 Apps" course.
- People who want to make apps. I will not be teaching wordy or complicated computer science philosophies. I will be teaching you how to make apps that you can play with, share with friends & family, and offer to the world!
- Beginners. You don't need any programming experience to take this class. I have been the absolute beginner before and I want to help you.
- Those programmers who are new to iOS 8 or Swift. Dive in with your prior experience and move more quickly, on to become an impressive iOS developer.
- Entrepreneurs who have an idea for an app. Don't pay somebody thousands to build your app. Do it yourself. Having the ability to create something you can think of is extremely powerful.
- Career development professionals who want to earn money professionally via contract work, consulting, full-time employment, and so forth
Who this course is for:
- No programming experience required
- Someone who hasn't had any luck with other tutorials
- Someone who doesn't care about the science and just wants to make A FREAKING APP
Hi! I'm Nick, and I love to code. About five years ago I decided that I wanted to learn to code, but I had limited access to programming resources, and I was getting frustrated with all of the YouTube videos and online tutorials out there. I experimented, struggled, and definitely failed a lot, but I finally got the hang of it, so I decided that I wanted to change the way that people learned to code, and I started teaching. My experience as an online student has directly influenced my teaching style, because I know what it is like to be in your shoes.
Apple announced their new programming language, Swift, in 2014, I made my big online teaching debut and created the
internet's first Swift course. Since that time, I have
become a full-time online instructor and I now have courses not only in Swift,
but also in iOS, Android, Django, Kotlin, Python, HTML, Blockchain, etc. I have also created five iOS apps from scratch that are currently live in the App Store and are being used by thousands of users worldwide.
I love sharing my excitement for coding with my students, and I try to make learning as fun and as easy as possible. Thanks for being part of my coding community!
