Course description

In this course you are going to learn how to take your Swift programming knowledge and apply it to building a real world iOS application. You’ll be taught the basics of navigating the X-Code environment working with Views and Controllers, and many of the nuisances that application developers face through actually building your first iOS mobile application.


This course requires some knowledge of using a Mac UI. Anyone with moderate computer end-user experience should be able to take this course. You should have already viewed the course Swift for iOS: Basics before taking this course.
