If you want to develop apps for iOS, you need to know how to code in Swift. This course will help you jumpstart your Swift development by showing you how to use its features efficiently when actually coding a real-world iOS application.
Swift is the new language for iOS and OS X development from Apple--it's a must-have for any developer who wants to create apps that work on iOS devices. This course, Swift for iOS Developers, dives into the features of Swift from the point of view of an Objective-C developer. You'll learn how you can use Swift 1.2 and Xcode 6.4 to build an app that uses features that most real-world apps use. You'll also cover authentication and keychain access. As well, you'll get to see typical use cases of getting data back from a JSON-based HTTP endpoint and how to use that data in table and collection views. By the end of this course, you'll have a working knowledge of Swift and you'll be able to use it to develop apps for iOS.
