iOS 9 and Swift 2 developers are some of the highest paid coders throughout the planet right now. There couldn’t be a better time to join the world of app development.
About this iOS 9 & Swift 2 Course
You are going to learn everything you need to know to be able to work professionally as a Jr. iOS 9 developer. Even if you aren’t interested in a career change this course will give you the necessary skills to build and publish iPhone and iPad apps to the Apple App Store.
All concepts and apps built within this course are designed with careful purpose. You won’t be learning some obscure concept just to learn that concept – you will learn the technologies and principles that actually matter when building professional applications.
You will learn Swift 2 and iOS 9.
Why Choose this iOS 9 & Swift 2 Course?
So many programming courses are built by people who are just looking to make a buck. They learn the coding skills literally right before they teach them! I am a professional iOS developer and have built 58 mobile apps to date with both Swift 2 and Objective-C. I also am a professional instructor at a coding bootcamp. I know what skills you will use in the industry (It is so important to learn Swift). I know how to help you learn. Most importantly, I am most interested in helping you change careers and/or increase your income.
iOS 9 & Swift 2 Course Structure
You should watch the concepts and follow along building what we build in the videos. Then build the exercises and do the warmups on your own. If you really want to become a great iOS & Swift developer watch the concepts, and then do the exercises, warmups, and quizzes.
Warmups will help you learn how to think like a programmer and are more algorithmic based. It is important to keep training your brain.
This course will be treated as closely to an live in-person course as possible. After each core principle is taught you will be given real industry-standard interview questions, meaning questions that you would likely be asked in a iOS development job interview.
At the end of each core principle you will be given an exercise that you must build that demonstrates the skills you have just learned.
What are the requirements?
– Mac or PC running OSX (Video tutorial how to install Mac OS Yosemite on any PC)

– Familiarity with basic programming principles such as Functions, Loops, Types, and Classes is helpful but not required
– No experience with Swift 2 or iOS 9 needed!
What am I going to get from this course?
– Over 164 lectures and 48 hours of content!
– Apply to Jr iOS development jobs
– Build apps at your current development job
– Master iOS 9
– Master Swift 2
– Build and release iOS 9 & Swift 2 apps to the Apple App Store
What is the target audience?
The Swift 2 language portion of the course will emphasize core programming principles (learn programming through Swift) which may feel too slow for advanced programmers. All other iOS 9 concepts are taught for all skill levels.
This course is designed for people with little or no programming experience who are focused on changing careers, getting a promotion, or who desire to build iOS 9 & Swift 2 apps professionally. Existing programmers looking to become professional iOS developers will also find this course incredibly valuable. Though comprehensive, this course is structured to teach you practical iOS development skills that you will use on a regular basis in a career setting, so if you are looking to learn less common iOS 9 concepts then this course might not be for you.
What is iOS? A word for iOS 9.
With an easy-to-use interface, amazing features, and security at its core, iOS 9 is the foundation of iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It’s designed to look beautiful and work beautifully, so even the simplest tasks are more engaging. And because iOS 9 is engineered to take full advantage of the advanced technologies built into Apple hardware, your devices are always years ahead.
iOS 9 is the ninth major release of iOS, the mobile operating system by Apple Inc. It is the successor to iOS 8 and focuses less on new features and more on under-the-hood optimizations, as well as battery improvements. It was announced at the company’s WWDC 2015 keynote on June 8, 2015, and released on September 16, 2015.
What is Swift 2.0? A word for Swift 2.0.
This new version has even better performance, a new error handling API, and first-class support for availability checking. And platform APIs feel even more natural in Swift with enhancements to the Apple SDKs.
In addition to new features, the big news is that Apple will be making Swift open source later this year. We are all incredibly excited about this, and look forward to giving you a lot more information as the open source release gets nearer. Here is what we can tell you so far:
– Swift source code will be released under an OSI-approved permissive license.
– Contributions from the community will be accepted — and encouraged.
– At launch we intend to contribute ports for OS X, iOS, and Linux.
– Source code will include the Swift compiler and standard library.
– We think it would be amazing for Swift to be on all your favorite platforms.
As on open source, Swift creates huge opportunity for our industry. Baked-in safety features combined with excellent speed mean it has the chance to dramatically improve software versus using C-based languages. Swift is packed with modern features, it’s fun to write, and we believe it will get used in a lot of places. Together, we have an exciting road ahead.
