Have you ever wanted to make an iPhone app? Now is your chance. This two hours course will walk you through making your very first app.
I created this course for people wanting to try out app programming. I keep things light and fun as I walk you through the basics of making an app. I know what it feels like to be a complete beginner because I'm a self taught programmer. I'll never talk over your head and I care about your learning.
We will be creating a Resume app that will showcase a picture of yourself, your work history, education and even buttons to initiate phone calls or emails. It is through creating this app that you will learn some basics of app programming.
If you've always thought about getting into apps and trying it out, don't delay any longer. The whole point of this course is to dive in so that you can see if it is right for you :)
So if you have a Mac computer, and want to try out making iPhone apps, enroll now!
I'm Nick Walter, an iOS developer that has been focused on mobile app design and creation for over 3 years. My involvement in the iOS community started off with a bang, and in 2013 I was one of 25 students worldwide to be invited to Apple's "Cocoa Camp." Within my community, I am also co-president of an Apple developer group called "Cocoa Heads."
I've always had an itch to make things, but growing up in a small town I had limited access to programming resources. This frustration drove my early interest in online education. After experimenting with various companies, learning styles, and teaching processes, I've adopted the best strategies and used them in my courses. My experience as an online student has directly influenced my teaching style, and I am now proud to help students all over the world with their online learning goals.
Since the announcement of the new Swift programming language by Apple, I have buried myself in the Apple documentation and any online resource that is available. In my first Swift course, I provide students with a detailed explanation of the topics and skills needed to learn Swift, an overview of the basic features of the new language, and get you started to begin building your first products.
Prior to teaching the internet's first course on Swift, I have created 5 iOS apps from scratch that are currently live in the App Store and being used by thousands of users worldwide. Using my experience launching my own apps, I'll walk you through the shortcuts that can save you time and frustration from having to teach yourself.
