Find out what you should know before watching this course. Brian expects you to have a basic understanding of Swift, and that you're familiar with using the Xcode IDE.
- [Instructor] In order to get the most out of this course, there are a few things that you should know, so let's talk about these requirements first. First of all, it's important that you have a Mac running at least Xcode 8 on your machine and it is very important that you have a basic understanding of the Swift 3 programming language, because I'm not going into detail about the different language features and what a variable is, for example. Also, it is very beneficial if you have a basic understanding of Xcode or IDE and Interface Builder.
So, if you know what a view controller is, what an IBOutlet, an IBAction is, then you're absolutely fine to move along. If not, then perhaps have a look at a basics course on IOS development, for example, first. The last thing that is actually kind of an optional requirement because only if you want to test your apps on an Apple TV, on a physical device, then you, of course, need an Apple TV and also a USB type C cable, because, as you can see here, at the back of an Apple TV, there is this USB type C port that you need to connect your Apple TV to your Mac.
