10+ Hours of Video Instruction
The professional programmer’s Deitel® video guide to iPhone® and iPad®app development using iOS® 8, Swift™, Xcode® 6, and Cocoa Touch®.
Billions of apps have been downloaded from Apple’s App Store! This LiveLesson gives you everything you’ll need to start developing great iOS 8 apps quickly using Swift–Apple’s programming language of the future. The video uses an app-driven approach–each new technology is discussed in the context of seven fully tested iOS 8 apps.
This LiveLesson has two parts:
• iOS 8 App Development Fundamentals with Swift LiveLessons Part I
• iOS 8 App Development Fundamentals with Swift LiveLessons Part II
Beginner-to-intermediate app developers who are familiar with a C-based object-oriented programming language
What You’ll Learn
Begin by setting up your Mac for iOS app development with the Swift programming language. Next, you’ll get an overview of the Xcode IDE as you test-drive the Tip Calculator app (which you’ll build in Lesson 3). In Lesson 2, without writing any code, you'll build a universal app using Xcode's Interface Builder and drag-and-drop UI design; then you’ll make the app accessible for people with visual impairments and localize it to display text in English or Spanish. In Lesson 3, you'll build the interactive Tip Calculator app, using Apple’s new Swift programming language to write the code that responds to user interactions and programmatically updates the user interface (UI). Lesson 4 explores the Twitter Searches app, which saves data locally on your device and in Apple's iCloud and displays search results using a web view.
Who Should Take This Course?
• Objective-C programmers who are developing new or modifying existing iOS and/or OS X apps, and who want to quickly begin using Swift in their apps.
• Java, C++ and C# programmers who are new to iOS and OS X development, and who want to start developing iOS and/or OS X apps in Swift.
Familiarity with any C-based, object-oriented programming language, such as Objective-C, Java, C++ or C#. Objective-C experience is not specifically required.
