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.
