Course Modules


  • Module 1: Basics of Programming

    You'll learn about variables, functions, classes, instances, procedural and object-oriented programming -- the basis of app development. Learn how to work with Xcode, compile your apps and run them in the iPhone Simulator. We'll really start with the basics, no programming experience required. All course material is written in Swift, Apple's new programming language. It's easy for beginners and grows with you when you reach intermediate and advanced levels of understanding.
  • Module 2: Working with the iOS SDK

    You'll learn how to create controllers, layouts, views and buttons with Xcode and Interface Builder. We're not going to use Storyboards and Auto Layout, pure code aided by Interface Builder gives greater influence in the end result. During this module you'll learn how to work with standard interface elements like buttons, picker views, navigation bars, tab bars, web views, and so on.
  • Module 3: Creating mockups

    Learn to design before you code, so no programming this week. You'll learn how to create a mockup of your app in Balsamiq Mockups, and use that as a blueprint. It's important: avoid the typical "a developer shouldn't design" fallacy by learning about design. We'll talk about positioning, proximity, alignment and the iOS Human Interface Guidelines.
  • Module 4: Intermediate Swift Programming

    Broaden your knowledge of programming by learning about the iOS ecosystem, compilation, and debugging with Crittercism. Get a better understanding of Swift by learning about memory management, background processing, app lifecycle, and paradigms like delegation, multi-threading, sorting and closures.

  • Module 5: Working With The Web

    First, we rig our News Reader app with a simple web-based JSON API using Alamofire. Then, we'll replace that and create our own cloud-based data warehouse with Parse. Finally, we integrate with Google Analytics for Mobile to see how users engage with the app.
  • Module 6: Working With Data Storage and Peripherals

    We put a brain in our app by storing data offline with Parse. You'll learn to use tools like user defaults, and how to take and store pictures on the iPhone. Then, we'll implement the GPS location service and use accelerometer input to interact with the app.
  • Module 7: Start To Finish

    As a grand finale, we build an entire app from start to finish. It's a social stream app, and it allows users to create a timeline of information with pictures and status updates. A user can befriend another user, and then see their timeline. It'll involve complex programming, but it's gonna be awesome. You could say, it's a Do-It-Yourself Facebook!
  • Module 8: Publishing and Testing

    Learn the steps required for putting your app in the iOS App Store. From creating an app archive, to enrolling in the iOS Developer Program, to uploading your app for review, and finally placing it in the App Store. We'll also distribute your app to beta testers with TestFlight.
  • Module X: Create A Landing Page

    Due to popular demand, you'll learn just one more thing: creating an app landing page with Strikingly. Learn how to come up with some great texts, take photos of your apps and persuade your potential customers to download your app.
