    Apps Intro

    The iOS Development with Swift course kicks off with a discussion of the iOS Architecture, the anatomy of iOS devices, and the iOS SDK. The Templates, Projects, Workspaces and Interface Builder of the XCode IDE are discussed as well.

    App Architecture

    Next after an overview of the essentials of the Swift programming language, attention is paid to the Model View Controller architecture of iOS apps. The linking of User Interface elements with code via IBOutlets and IBActions is then covered as well.

    UIControls and Views

    Views and controls are the visual building blocks of the user interface of an iOS App. Various controls such as buttons, switches, tables, date pickers and maps are treated. Views such as Collection, Navigation and Tab Bar Views are also discussed.


    In addition multitasking in iOS apps is also part of the course program. Here Background Apps Refresh, State Restoration, the Grand Central Dispatch (GCD) and Concurrency are covered.

    Data Access

    File System data access with Core Data and database access with SQLite is an important part of the course. The course als discusses how to deal with XML and JSON data that come in via HTTP networking and web service access.


    Participants will learn how to use storyboards for UI design and explore drawing techniques and animation. Debugging iPhone and iPad apps is also treated.

    Advanced Topics

    The course iOS development with Swift ends by paying attention to deployment issues and localization of apps.
