Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before starting this course, part of Building a Note-Taking App for iOS 9 with Swift.
- So what do you need to know coming in to this course? First we'll talk about who this course is for. It's for software developers who want to build iOS apps and developers with experience in other mobile development environments like Android or Windows Phone. So let's talk about some helpful skills to have. You will need a basic understanding of object-oriented programming concepts like classes and instances, and you should know at least one programming language. I'm going to assume that you're familiar with programming, though you may not be familiar with Swift.
This course teaches basic app architecture and has examples of using the iOS SDK. You'll also get experience using the iOS simulator in Xcode. To reiterate, if you feel comfortable at all doing any amount of programming, then you should be ready to use this course. The courses I've shown are just for supplemental information if you run into questions throughout the course.
Building a Note-Taking App for Android and Building a Note-Taking App for Windows Phone 8 and Windows Store use the same assets. Compare and contrast the steps and discover the similarities and differences between the three platforms.
