The Problem

Ok, here's the simple part. The UI for the app.

Defining the UI

And the functionality, in case you had trouble solving things.

Coding the Functionality

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.

Bonus. Using a Picker. Warning, weird code inside.

Software Engineer, Xamarin-certified Mobile developer

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!
