iOS Development for Android Developers provides a through introduction to iOS app development using the wildly popular Swift programming language. With almost 7.5 hours of engaging video lectures and all the project files used in the videos, this course is designed to take students with no experience in Swift and little experience in Android to accomplished and COMPLETE mobile app developers.
Why Swift? Since its introduction, Swift has rapidly taken its place as the successor of Objective-C for apps development. Its syntax is easy to read and understand. Its a modern programming language that supports closures, type inference, protocols, class extensions, and so much more. It is 2.6x times faster than Objective-C and 8.4x faster than Python 2.7!
Some of the top-rated iOS apps using Swift are LinkedIn, Strava, Yahoo Weather, Clear, Lyft, Khan Academy, Omvana and much more. iOS developers with strong knowledge in Swift command some of the highest salaries in the development world and are in high demand.
This course takes a very structured approach of teaching Swift. Everything from "Hello World" to Protocol-Oriented Programming is covered. Students acquire skills rapidly through a deep-dive in the world of Swift and iOS development with three chapter projects.
All the projects are done from scratch, limiting the use of shortcuts so students can understand what's really going on under the hood of Swift applications and can design them the way they want. Then with solid knowledge and understanding already in place, rapid prototyping methods are introduced in later parts of the course through the use of CocoaPods; a dependency manager very similar to Gradle dependency manager in Android development that allows the use of external libraries, called Pods, which streamlines the process of rapid development in a professional environment.

>> Note: If you get an "undefined method" error when running "Pod Install", try running this command:
$ ruby -v ruby 2.3.0p0 (2015-12-25 revision 53290) [x86_64-darwin15]
If you're Ruby version is 2.3, then you may have encountered a bug with CocoaPods and Ruby 2.3.
Just run the following command to install the latest beta version of CocoaPods, which solves this issue:
$ gem install cocoapods --pre

A skilled, self-motivated, autodidactic, and "very" lovable individual with a deep passion for programming and problem solving in multiple disciplines of technology.
My experience in mobile development in both Android and iOS is outstanding. I've had the pleasure to work on a variety of different mobile projects where I've learned how to architect complex systems and properly utilise design patterns.
Moreover, I'm proficient at many advanced programming paradigms and technologies, such as Component-based Software Engineering (CBSE), Continuous Integration (CI), Object-Oriented Programming (OOP), Reactive Extensions (Rx), Test-Driven Development (TTD), and many more cool abbreviations.
My current passion is mobile app security; I've had hands-on experience with security frameworks like Drozer, Xposed Framework, JaDX, and Santoku VM.
