iOS app development is actually simpler than you might think—even if you're not an experienced programmer. In this course, Todd Perkins bundles the most important concepts in iOS into a quick course, explaining the development process in a visual way that people of any background can understand. No programming experience required! At the end, you'll have a finished app and a basic understanding of Xcode, the toolset for developing iOS apps; building blocks like variables, functions, and conditional statements; and interface design. You can also figure out if an iOS learning path is right for you, without a lengthy time commitment.
If you find you'd like to learn more, see iOS App Development Essential Training, Foundations of Programming: Fundamentals, or any of the other programming courses in our library.
With Xcode installed, I'm going to launch it from the Dock. You can add Xcode to your Dock by dragging the icon from your Applications folder. When Xcode launches, you'll see the welcome screen. Through this window, you can quickly create a new Xcode project, or open a recent project. I'm going to click to create a new Xcode project. Once I click the Add button, I'm asked to choose a template for my project. You'll see on the left side that there are iOS and OS X templates.
Each category of templates has a few different groups. Under iOS Application, I'm going to choose Single View Application and click Next. Here I'm asked to enter a few options for my project. I'm going to enter the product name Example. You can, of course, change this later if you want to. For the organization name I put my name, and for the company identifier, I used the name of my website. For devices I have iPhone selected and I'm going to click Next. Then I'm asked to choose a place to save the project, I'm going to save this on the Desktop.
So, with the Desktop selected, I'm going to click Create. And the project is created. So, let's close this project and see what happened on the Desktop. On the Desktop, there is a folder. If I double-click that folder to open it up, you'll see some folders and a file in it. The file is an Xcode Project file, which you can double-click to open up this project in Xcode. The Example folder has the same name as my project and it contains some files and folders.
So now you've successfully created your first Xcode project.
