Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of iOS App Development: Apple iCloud API with iOS (2016).
- The exercise files for this course are organized by chapters. So each chapter has some subfolders. Those folders contain, sometimes, final and start folders. Start folders contain the starting files for that movie. So, the typical process is to go in the subfolder, go in the start folder, and then the next folder and then you'll find the file that is an Xcode project file. That's the file that you want to double click to open right up in Xcode to be working right with us.
The final states are there for your convenience. Some folders don't have start states, like the creating project. That's because we create the project in the movie. So I just saved the final version of that project inside of the final folder, for your convenience, as well. The same goes for Chapters two and three. Most of the folders have finals and starts and some of the folders have just a final folder. If you don't have access to the exercise files, don't worry. We're creating everything from scratch.
For each of the iCloud projects that we're doing, we're creating the entire project from scratch using only assets built into Xcode so anybody can follow along.
