Learn the basic subjects about iOS and Cloud-based services that you will need to create powerful applications enhanced by the cloud.
Build amazing apps that are empowered by cloud services with this tutorial for both beginners and experts that want to learn about cloud-services.
Powerful apps that your users will love
Including cloud services inside your apps creates a better user experience that your users will appreciate. Having data in the cloud is amazing so your users can have the same things on their iPhone and on their iPad and even on their Android (if you develop your app for other platforms as well).
iOS is growing amazingly, so a lot of users could download your apps. You could even be hired as an iOS developers, those guys are very well paid.
Content and overview
Suitable for beginners or anyone who is barely starting on mobile app development. You'll learn the basics of the Swift programming language, the basics of app creation and you'll even create real-world basic apps.
Also suitable for experieced developers who want to learn what they can do by integrating powerful cloud services in their apps. You'll learn how you can acces cloud-hosted databases (and create thos databases), upload photos to a cloud storage service that YOU create, authenticate your users with Facebook or other services and more!
The courses flow is designed to take you from beginner (if you are one) to an experienced developer with apps that take advantage of the power of the cloud.
Work alonside the aouthor and you'll end up with 5 real-world apps. You will also have learnt how to create powerful iOS apps from the ground up.
We have a OneDrive folder: http://1drv.ms/1U1bPVd in which you are able to upload your code so we can solve your questions, or maybe you have solved the question of someone else. Share your projects and more!
Where can I get the tools (Xcode) required to start developing iOS apps?
Create your first iOS project. We'll be doing it this way troughout the entire course.
Understand the diference between Constants and Variables. You'll start learning Swift in the Playground (part of Xcode) where we can quickly understand how a program reacts to our code.
Learn how you can condition when a certain part of your code should excecute and when it shouldn't.
Code that needs to iterate? Run and run and run for a number of times (specific or based on something)?
We'll solve that here.
Pieces of code that we can excecute by writing just one line.
Functions is what you'll learn now.
Storyboards are great for defining the UI, let's start adding some elements to that UI so we can let the user input data.
Your fist challenge! Here's what you should build.
Ok, here's the simple part. The UI for the app.
And the functionality, in case you had trouble solving things.
I will change the UI a bit, and start using a UIPicker. I have to warn you, this may be a little to much if you are barely starting with iOS development. You can skip this lecture and leave it for later.
Share what you built!
Adding lists (tables) to your app.
Setting the way the application will look like.
Initial coding for out application to work.
What we have to code for the TableView to show data.
What we need to code for the cells (lines in the TablewView) to show data. Building custom TableViewCells.
Using local Databases.
Defining what the data will be shaped like.
Retrieving what is inside of the database.
Inserting data into the DB.
Get only data that corresponds to the Customer we want to see.
Get only the Projects from the selected Customer.
Challenge 2! What you will build now.
Define the way the application will look like.
Start coding the functionality.
Getting the app ready.
Cloud computing services! What is the cloud?
Azure Mobile Services will allow us to connect our iOS apps to the power of the cloud.
Get a free Azure subscription and create a mobile service.
Link your iOS app to the Mobile Service so we can start accesing cloud-based services.
A Mobile Service comes with a DB (cloud-based of course), let's insert data into it!
Get the data that is in the loud-based database!
I am a Software Engineer, Xamarin Certified Mobile developer. But I'm also studying Finance and Banking.
I have developed mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows. But I've also designed marketing strategies for some local businesses and my own company.
I'm a cofunder of an Internet of Things startup, in which my role goes from software developer, to cloud expert, to project lead, to inventor. But my role also goes to Chief Financial Officer, to CEO, to marketing, to designer and sometimes even teacher.
I have learnt a lot in school and at work about software development, cloud computing and the internet of things. But I've also learnt in my new school and during my amazing journey creating startups and small businesses about finance, banking, marketing, design, leadership and other very interesting stuff.
Above all however. I am human and I'm here to try to make the world a better place in any way I can, one is creating Internet of Things devices that will make life better, another is teaching stuff so you can be better at work, or even create your own company!
