What you should know before starting this course

Before coming in this course, you should be familiar with a few things. First, you should have an idea of general programming concepts. So you should have some experience programming. If you're completely new to programming, I recommend watching some more basic courses first. Like foundations of programming fundamentals. You should have a solid grasp of iOS and Xcode, you don't need to be a master, but you should have at least the equivalent of the knowledge taught in the Essential Training course. Finally, you should know how to set up Xcode and have an environment where the student can learn and write code themselves.

If you feel comfortable in these things, you're ready to move forward with this course.
