Beginner s Guide to iOS Development: The Interface – Part I - Hongkiat

This course is designed to teach you the skills needed to be an app developer capable of bringing your own ideas to life. Whether you’re new to coding or want to expand your skills, by the end of this course you should be able to build a fully functioning app of your own design.

The course starts by introducing iOS development tools, basic programming concepts using Swift as the language, and industry best practices. Building on this foundation, you’ll follow a step-by-step curriculum, work through practical exercises, and create apps from scratch.

liking this book so far, but there are some bugs

The Vocabulary list on page 50 (lesson 1.5 Xcode) is not clickable like it has been on other lessons. It looks clickable, but nothing pops up on the mac or the ipad. also there are a couple of typos where it says you can't do something and then on the next page it's doing exactly that something, keystroke for keystroke (page 24 says "let π = 3.14159" is expressly forbidden, then page 25 shows two examples where it says "let π = 3.14"). Still, these are tiny complaints. This is one of the most concise and easy to read (and understand!) books I've seen on Swift programming.

It's AMAZING that this book is free! This is one of the best books I've seen on learning how to program and a beginners guide to learning Swift. It is plainly obvious how much time and effort Apple and their authors put into this book to make it approachable to anyone. I highly recommend this book to any educational institution or individual!!

Groundbreaking for Coding Education
by as1592

I am a mathematics and first-year computer coding teacher in a large urban school district. I have spent a considerable amount of time curating coding resources over the course of the year, as I now teach two sections of computer coding. The ‘App Development with Swift’ curriculum is hands down the most comprehensive and well-written program I have encountered, and the fact that it is being offered for free is truly groundbreaking.

I am new to the Swift coding language, so I have spent the past few days working through the lessons myself. I have found the materials to be challenging, but clear for any skill level. The ‘textbook’ has divided each lesson with clear learning goals. The accompanying labs work through 8-10 ‘pages' of exercises that reinforce the objectives and skills from the lessons, scaffolding the material to make it manageable. The resources, including Keynotes and solutions are robust and complete.

Unfortunately, my school has not invested in any Mac devices so I have to consider how I can still integrate elements of these resources into our coding program, which serves high school students from predominantly low-income backgrounds. Apart from the barrier of entry, coding education has become more crucial as it incorporates a variety of useful, real-world skills. As coding education continues to pick-up steam, it will be exciting to see how schools will be able to incorporate this incredible (and free) product into their programs. This program can have a major impact on student learning.
