Joining a company and starting work as an iOS engineer can initially feel overwhelming. Techniques we used for introductory iOS app aren’t there. People seem to expect you to know everything about core Apple frameworks like UIKit.

Not any more.
This course was created to help you make the transition from iOS hobbyist to working professionally.

Knowing the design patterns and idioms professional iOS developers use when writing professional code
This course will not only equip you with these essential skills, you will get to apply them on real life work examples and problems, all pulled from my experiences working as a professional iOS engineer on real world jobs.

What others are saying about this course:
One of the best courses on Udemy, you will learn a lot even if you are an experienced iOS developer, I really recommend it.
The best iOS course out there. The stuff he teaches is super relevant and to make everything from scratch, literally without even storyboards was amazing. There were so many concepts with which I used to struggle with and he taught them with ease. I am really glad I took this course. Keep making amazing videos Jonathan. You have a follower here :)
If you wanna get things right? get this course. Getting things right is a huge part of your job as a professional iOS developer. There are many courses out there that teach you how develop iOS apps but they also teach you bad habits that you will need to correct in the future. So if you wanna save time and learn correctly from the start I would recommend this course to the moon and back.
I really enjoy how the instructor has attitude to a student. Listening and watching it is just the honey on my heart. Additional the knowledge of instructor is amazing which it's multiply the experience :)
I've purchased dozens of courses on Udemy, and Jon truly stands out as an instructor. He makes the content engaging and skillfully explains the nuances and subtle details of the implementation. His enthusiasm for the material distinguishes him as someone who is not only competent in the subject matter but also adept at teaching.
Excellent lessons! I have fairly extensive Swift experience, but I'm learning so much to improve the quality and professionalism of my code.
I found this course through the Swift Arcade YouTube channel. For the longest time I had been looking for a course to really show me how to develop an iOS app similarly to how you would working for a software company. Jonathan goes over things such as consistently using git to save and host your work, using vi for editing, etc. all while building a variety of features for an iOS app. While I am not a beginner at iOS development, I had some knowledge gaps to fill and I am 100% satisfied with how this course helped in filling those gaps. I am now feeling much more confident moving forward in obtaining that first iOS developer job. Big thank you to Jonathan for this iOS professional course. I'd love to see more content like this in the future.
I'm still studying for my first iOS job and this course was great to give me a broader view of what to expect to work more professionally. Jonathan has an amazing methodology, many times throughout the course I had a question or was wondering about something he came with the explanation soon after, like he could read my mind xD Now I will try to apply all this knowledge to my personal projects, Thanks !
John's explanations are great; he gives a practical approach to iOS development. Git, programmatic UIKit, practical use of several common elements and also his professional insight from years of experience in the field are all appreciated here.
