  • Course iOS Development with SwiftUI : Content

    In the course iOS development with SwiftUI, participants learn to use the programming language Swift and the declarative SwiftUI framework for the development of apps for the iPhone and iPad. The XCode Development Environment is used for developing the iOS apps and the many possibilities of this Integrated Development Environment are discussed.

    Swift Review

    The course iOS Development with SwiftUI kicks off with a review of key elements of the Swift programming language. This includes the discussion of type inference, classes, structures, guards and closures.

    Swift UI Architecture

    Next the declarative and data driven SwiftUI syntax and the use of SwiftUI projects in XCode are discussed. Attention is also paid to the SwiftUI App and UI hierarchy, the various SwiftUI views, stacks, frames and also to event handling in Swift UI.

    Data Persistence

    There are several ways to store data in SwiftUI apps. Scene Storage and App Storage are treated and access to the file system of a device is discussed as well. Attention is also paid to storing data in a key value store and in a relational database such as SQLite. Lifecycle modifiers are also reviewed.


    Navigating between different screens in a SwiftUI app is also part of the program of the course. This section discusses the use of NavigationViews and NavigationLinks that can be included in List and Dynamic Lists.


    Gestures in mobile apps relate to interaction with the device through taps, clicks and swipes. The use of gestures in SwiftUI is treated as well as the combination with animations.

    SwiftUI Widgets

    Widgets are the visual building blocks of the user interface of a Swift UI App. Various widgets such as lists, grids, buttons, switches, tables, date pickers and maps are covered. Attention is also paid to the creation of User Defined widgets with the WidgetKit.

    UI Kit Integration

    Finally the course discusses how existing iOS apps based on the UI kit architecture can be integrated with the SwiftUI architecture. The role of UIViewControllers and Storyboards is covered here.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
