iOS App Development (with Swift) Level 2

Start Building iPhone & iPad Apps

In this training you’ll learn the fundamentals of building apps for iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad. You’ll use Apple’s Xcode to begin laying out designs and programming functionality with Swift (Apple’s latest programming language). You will learn about Object Oriented Programming (OOP) and how to submit a working app to the App Store.

Prior experience with some type of coding (not iOS specifically, just any type of coding) will help greatly, as this course will delve into iOS programming. If you have no prior experience coding, we highly recommend you start with our iOS App Development Level 1: Intro to Swift class. You’ll need to bring a Mac laptop to this class.
