Course Overview

This 7-day intensive is a great way to get your iOS development going quickly and smoothly. Gain real, hands-on proficiency coupled with insight into key iOS design patterns, development techniques, and best practices.

By the end of the class, you'll have written non-trivial apps from scratch that embody the things you've learned throughout the week. You'll have a solid understanding of every line of code you've written, plus experience using various debugging techniques to resolve issues along the way.

Section One

Objective-C Programming (2 Days)

A rapid introduction to the basics of ANSI C and Objective-C programming. This course is designed get you up to speed on the language features and Foundation framework APIs you'll need in everyday Cocoa development. Provides deep insight into Objective-C's dynamic runtime system, along with some of the more challenging aspects of C and Objective-C programming.

  • Learn the fundamentals of ANSI C programming and the standard C libraries.
  • Get solid on C functions, pointers, and data structures.
  • Learn to create and use Objective-C objects, classes, and methods.
  • Understand dynamic binding, messaging, and the Objective-C runtime.
  • Learn how and where to use Objective-C categories and protocols.
  • Gain plenty of hands-on experience with Foundation classes and APIs.

Section Two

iOS Development in Objective-C (5 Days)

A rapid introduction that builds practical knowledge of iOS development from the ground up. This course carefully weaves topics in a way that reveals the inner workings of key mechanisms of Cocoa touch such as the responder chain, the view hierarchy, and target-action. The goal is not only to understand how to make an iOS app work, but also to understand why it works the way it does — insight that will help in resolving issues, learning new topics, and making better-informed design decisions.

  • Learn the fundamentals of UIKit and other iOS frameworks.
  • Work with touch events and keyboard input, and understand the event distribution system.
  • Understand custom drawing, animation, and layout.
  • Work with views, controls, and view controllers
  • Get a solid understanding of framework design patterns such as Delegate and Data Source.
  • Gain hands-on experience with nib files, storyboards, and segues.
  • Work with advanced view controllers to manage table views and navigation
  • Understand how to access the file system to store and retrieve user data.
  • Learn to use framework mechanisms to help manage concurrency.
