Learn and Understand Building Modern iOS Apps 
What you'll learn
- Master programming fundamentals - no previous experience needed!
- Understand how to build quality iOS apps that sell on the App Store
- Leverage the powerful Xcode 11 IDE to write code more quickly
- Use popular industry design patterns, ensuring you'll write quality code
- Structure your code for reuse using Object Oriented Programming
- Clone the core feature set of two top iOS Apps - Lyft and Spotify
- Build proficiency with Swift 5.0 programming language
- No prerequisites
This course is carefully designed to take someone with either no programming or iOS experience, and teach them exactly what it takes to build an app. You'll learn how to build modern iOS apps by building the core features of two iconic apps of our time: Lyft and Spotify.
I've taken the best of my material and experience of 5+ years of teaching at University of Southern California and General Assembly, and packaging it together in this course, just for you.
UIKit vs SwiftUI
This course will be covering UIKit over SwiftUI for several reasons:
UIKit is undeniably the predominate framework used by Fortune 500 and tech companies. If you're looking for an iOS career or you're working with an existing codebase, virtually all of these iOS apps will be UIKit driven. We are comparing a technology with over a decade of history (UIKit) vs one that was introduced in less than a year (SwiftUI).
SwiftUI has a steeper learning curve, less documentation, and significantly smaller community size. Apple’s SwiftUI documentation is limited at best. Many developers have been writing books, articles, and tutorials on SwiftUI. But at this time, everyone is a beginner and no one is an expert. There’s much less SwiftUI learning material and much more open issues / unanswered questions than UIKit.
SwiftUI needs much more time to mature. From interviewing iOS engineers I know who's worked directly with SwiftUI at production level, it isn't a technology that's ready for primetime and has several limitations (i.e. limited catalogue of view components, no custom view extensions, etc.). This takes time for Apple engineers to introduce updates and bug fixes.
SwiftUI is currently at a place where it's not easy for beginners, and not ready for professionals. For those reasons, this course offers a much more widely used, stable, and easier to develop with technology.
