iOS 8 has brought upon many new libraries to develop with, and even a new language - Swift! No longer to iOS developers need to deal with the bulky syntax of Objective-C. Swift is fast, clean, and built for the future.
The Bitfountain iOS introduction course takes you through the process of create your first iOS 8 apps in Xcode 6 with the Swift language. You will download Xcode, set up and customize views graphically, and learn the basics of Swift. By the end you will have built a simple adventure game called Age of Laika.
If you want to dive deeper, go from beginner to junior coder with our iOS 8 Immersive with Swift, which expands this mini course with over 300 video lectures with step-by-step process of creating applications such as an Instagram® Clone, a Tinder clone, and an app that takes advantage of HealthKit® (plus many more).
Topics Covered in this introductory course:
Eliot regularly teaches iOS development classes and workshops at General Assembly and guest lectures for companies and development boot camps around NYC.
