The launch of iOS 9 is just around the corner, but there is still time to become a full-fledged app developer. The iOS 9 Swift Coding Course teaches Apple’s coding language from scratch, and it is currently $59 over at 9to5Toys Specials.
You don’t need any experience with coding to take this course, as the tuition starts at the shallow end of Swift. However, you soon make progress, learning your way around Apple’s Xcode app and the features of iOS 9. You can then move on to iCloud integration, setting up notifications, and using the new stackView and AVAudioRecorder classes.
The format is step-by-step video instruction, followed by an assignment to test out your new skills. All together, there are ten functioning apps to build.
