Here Best Swift Online Courses
As a developer whose first programming language is Swift, I’ve taken online courses from major platforms. However, I have been frustrated by a lack of detailed explanation from instructors. They tend to focus on final products, thus missing out the fundamentals. I was confused by which design principles to follow, and why. Soon after I’ve been blogging for the last 5 months, I’ve discovered this isn’t the only problem of mine. I’ve received hundreds of emails and questions regarding how to write code that does not violate principles such as DRY, modularity, and readability. As a result, I’ve decided to create this course dedicated for my younger self. I believe it all comes down to the fundamentals which I lacked in the beginning.
- Learn the difference between classes and structs and which one to use
- Learn how to create generic enums, structs, classes, protocols
- Get a taste of functional programming with trailing, auto, and escaping closures
- Understand how objects are created and removed through Automatic Reference Counting
- Understand potential retain cycle in closures, delegate, and class variables
- Understand Swift is a protocol oriented programming language
- Apply protocols such as Equatable, Comparable, Sequence, and IteratorProtocol
- Execute Swift files using Terminal/Command Line
- Functional Programming
The best way to use this course:
1.) Watch the lecture. Seems self explanatory so let me elaborate; I would prefer students to put your pencils down(not write any code) and watch closely to the lecture and its content. This will allow you to download all important information to your brain before trying it yourself. Also, watch the class in order from beginning to end; students sometimes like to jump ahead, this I cannot recommend doing. The way this class is structured is intended to be done from start to finish line.
2.) After each lecture, please note that the code covered in class is readily available for download. It is my expectation of the student to download this code and load it into their environments to play around and be creative. This is the exercise I expect students to do before moving onto the next lecture. This is an important time for students to go and break things; that’s right break the code I give you. In learning to code especially, you learn from fixing what is broken! So I encourage the student to be creative with how they want to treat the downloadable resources; There are no wrong ways to approach this method of learning on your own.
3.) As the facilitator of your learning, if you get stuck on something or would like to share with the class your experience, please add your thoughts and comments to the Q and A section of this course. An open dialogue with myself or other students will reinforce the ideas covered in the lectures.
Note: The brutal truth to learning how to code, is that there are “no free lunches” or experiences of instant gratification. Coding is learned through brute force and trial and error. This method of learning never goes away, as I myself go through it everyday. This class is about learning how to learn, and improving the problem solving skills that you will need to succeed not only in this course, but with the rest of your careers as programmers.
This course will help you understand all you need to know to program in the simplistic language Swift, and give you a boost to start your iOS and Mac OS X development career. This is a very simple and effective course on learning the Swift programming language.
