Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Programming for Non-Programmers with iOS 7.
If you are a premium subscriber to Lynda. com, then you have access to the exercise files for this course. The exercise files are organized by chapters. Each chapter contains the appropriate exercise files or in some cases like in chapter 1, there are no exercise files. In that case, you'll see a file that's called 'There are no exercise files for this Chapter.' In the rest of the chapters, each chapter has its own sub folders for each movie. You'll see the name of the file you'll be working in on your screen for each movie.
Each folder has a final and start folder. I included the final versions of the files just in case you get lost. Finally, the file to open up is the Xcode project file that's deep within the Start or Final folder. So if you double-click that, the project will open up in Xcode, and your screen should look just like mine. If you don't have access to the exercise files, don't worry. We're going to be writing all of our code from scratch, and we're not using any other artwork created by another artist.
We're only using assets that are built into Xcode. So have confidence that you can follow along just as well.
