Build seven complete projects that teach you the new features in iOS 11 as well as five technique projects that reinforce your iOS 11 knowledge by introducing the latest techniques, for building better apps.

This course is written by the award winning Swift programmer, Paul Hudson, it is from his best selling book, "Practical iOS 11", made into a lecture style course, and these videos were made with his permission and support. Paul is the author of the Hacking With Swift series of tutorials, which is one of the most popular Swift coding sites online. Paul also has received high praise from the creator of the Swift language, Chris Lattner, for his outstanding method of teaching, and series of Swift tutorials. And working together with iOS developer Steve DeStefano, the Hacking with Swift series of programming training videos are simply the fastest way to learn how to code in the Apple eco-system.

This course incorporates the use of annotations, callouts, diagrams, highlighting, and deep explanations that help make complex subject matter, much easier to grasp, and guide you along the path of the code, each step of the way. This course also makes the perfect reference tool kit, to be used in conjunction with the Apple docs, so that you can go back and scrub through any of the lectures very quickly to pull out relevant code or instruction that you need, as there's no wasted chatter here, it's strictly on point with Swift 4 and iOS 11.

Please note: These are intermediate to advanced projects, and this course will not teach you the Swift language, or how to codeyou should already have completed Paul Hudson's Swift tutorials at HackingWithSwift dot com, or gone through the Hacking With Swift beginner to pro course here on Udemy.

iOS / macOS Developer / Swift Instructor

My name is Steve DeStefano, an iOS instructor, and working together with Paul Hudson, the award winning Swift programmer, i've transfered his best selling iOS / macOS / watchOS, and other books into lecture style courses. So your getting the best instruction available for everything Apple. Paul's teaching method has been hailed as one of the best ways to learn how to code in the shortest amount of time, and he has received high praise from the creator of the Swift language, Chris Lattner. I offer a unique way of presenting Paul's material, which is with the help of callouts, highlighting and graphics, all to make it easy to follow the path of the code, and understand the content. If your think this might be too difficult, think again, and then come code along with Paul and me, and see how easy it is to learn Swift and app building. Go from a newbie to an Apple developer in a short amount of time, and see your own unique creations in the App Sore, and in the hands of thousands of people.
