What do you do when you’re just out of college, but there aren’t any jobs in your academic field? You learn to code!

That’s what Shani Rivers did. She’s a resourceful iOS developer, a Zero to App Store alumni, and the developer of 3 apps, including Liste, a task app. Here at LearnAppMaking she learned how to build iOS apps. This is her story.

“I think that programming is an art, in some way. You’re trying to figure out what works.”

What Developers Are Saying


I've recently begun working as a freelance iOS developer. You've helped me take that step, so thank you for your support early on. It's been a great experience! Rasmus Englund, created ColorDrop

Reinder knows everything about iOS apps, from the nitty-gritty programming details all the way up to finding customers and scaling a business. He's an open book of knowledge and genuinely wants to help others achieve their own success. Peter LoBlue, created Whenever

I was blown away by the depth and at attention to details. The courses cover front-end and backend, how to design, build, create a landing page and launch an app on the App Store. Everything you need to move from a total beginner to a very competent junior app developer. Anselme Kotchap, created Power Law Technique

The courses contain everything you need to code, design, test and publish your apps. I totally recommend it. What helped me the most was how to create app mockups — as a developer I always found design hard to understand. This is pure gold stuff that you won't find any place else! Cosmin Pupăză, The Programming Apprentice

I was struggling to get downloads for my iOS app, so I reached out to Reinder for help. He gave me a step-by-step strategy to try and it worked fantastically: 1 week later I passed 3,000 downloads in a single day! Reinder's broad experience as an app developer makes him the perfect teacher for new app developers. Dave Kynaston, created Our Epic Day

With Zero to App Store I got to really understand some programming concepts that confused me before, like Object-Oriented Programming. It's now much clearer to me. Your diagrams on variables and functions show how good you are in teaching what seem to be so complex. Ann

Reinder is experienced entrepreneur and skilled developer and did put tons of love and experience into his course. It's turned out great, and I'm sure, you can learn from him too. Nadja Petranovskaja

What struck me about the course is that it is well thought out and structured. The videos are simply awesome too, very easy to follow and you provide way more than I expected. I would recommend this course to anyone who appreciates professional content tailored for any level of programming. Eddie Mooney

The course shows you how things are done by pros. Its a challenging but fun course that helps you execute on your ideas with practical information not easily obtainable elsewhere. Worth every cent! Vish Subramanian

What a storytelling, man! I just couldn't resist myself from sending you a DM. The way you explained totally blown me. I'm an android developer, but I can relate myself with your explanation. Thank you. Priyank Tiwari

Reinder is an ace in teaching you how to become a Maestro in app-making. He doesn't let any detail slip by without a comment or a way to improve upon it. I am excited about how much I've learned. Door de Flines

I'm quite busy with my job but thanks to the course I can do it with my own pace. And the best thing is Reinder can help you with any problem!
