Course Overview



On this course, students will learn how to build a native iOS app from nothing. Students won't be expected to have built an app before, but a familiarity with some form of programming will certainly help. Modern first-party frameworks like SwiftUI and Combine will be used to structure UI and data flow respectively. This programme will cover topics such as source control, tricks to fix bugs that arise, saving data to the device with core data, making and responding to network requests and how to structure a project in a scalable way. Students should have a Mac or a machine that runs macOS and they must have installed and be able to run Xcode. The code will be provided after each session to play around with outside of lessons and doing so is strongly encouraged.
