In this course you will create a fully customised iOS 9 application called Quotes To Go from start to finish. Quotes to Go was created specifically to work as an example for this course and has already been downloaded from the Appstore by thousands of people around the world. So this is not just a simple demo application. This is a 100% real world app.
This course is for everyone who wants to learn more than the basics of iOS development. After watching this course you will have immersive knowledge about professional iOS development and advanced programming techniques.
Some of the highlights that we we are going to cover are:
After introducing you to the Quotes To Go App, which this course is about, we will have a close look at the design and we will identify key obstacles that we have to face when translating UI design into code. We will move on by learning more about data saving techniques like CoreData and plists. After saving our first quotes we will cover custom ViewController transitions to ensure a great user experience. Displaying all quotes in a beautifully designed TableView will be the next item on our way. We will even use Wikipedia to find images of famous people and use them as author images. We will also perform face detection to ensure that a persons face is always visible. After integrating some basic features like adding, deleting and sharing quotes, we will focus our efforts on one of the app’s highlights, which is generating great looking quote images that can be saved, but also shared on social media, via text, or e-mail. We will conclude this course by integrating the ability to sync data using iCloud.

I wrote my first line of code at the age of 10 by creating the simplest form of a Hello World Application within the Visual Basic Editor of Microsoft Word. For many years, programming was completely about the journey for me.
Starting off with Visual Basic and earning money by creating Access Databases for many clients was nice, but not the driving force behind my wish to know more about creating software.
After switching to the Mac, I started developing with Java, C++, and later ActionScript 3.0. After school I used my expertise in different scientifically used big data applications. My work was all about visualisation of large amounts of data and therefore creating the best user experience possible.
Although I do love programming, I chose a different path for my professional carrier. By becoming an educator I could follow my second passion which is sharing knowledge. Today and especially since the release of the iPhone SDK in 2008 my interest in programming mainly is focused on creating iOS Apps for educational use and finding ways to create software that can be used in classroom, at universities and by students themselves to make learning a great experience. Although my passion lies in educational software, I am also doing client work from time to time, which does not only include the development of iOS Applications but also the implementation of different iOS development trainings.
