This course teaches the fundamentals of developing iOS applications using version 2 of the Swift programming language.
The course is in 10 units: the first six cover the Swift language itself; the last four concentrate on the core view controller architecture of an iOS app.
At the end of the course, you’ll be able to write iOS applications that use tables, hierarchical and tabbed navigation, and understand the principles behind developing any iOS application.
The course will be complimented with shorter sessions on the various extension frameworks at a later date, including SpriteKit, SceneKit, HealthKit, WatchKit, etc.
