What are we building?
In this course, you will learn how to build an MVP version of Twitter with strictly Swift UI using the MVVM architecture. This is the only course on the market that builds a fully functioning app as complex as Twitter using nothing but SwiftUI. We will be building this completely from scratch, starting with the User Interface skeleton, and working our way up to integrating our API with Firestore and data models. This course WILL take your development skills to the next level, using the latest and greatest techniques in modern programming.
We will be building all the core components of a social network. This includes following users, uploading/liking tweets, direct messaging, 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. This also makes for a great project to add to your portfolio, which you can use to show off to potential employers if you're trying to become a pro.
