Learn how to make your first iOS app with Swift, and discover some of the more common pieces of the UIKit framework and how to use them with Swift.
This Code School course was a fun introduction to Swift. It felt weird switching between swift files and the storyboard in Xcode, almost like cheating, but I did appreciate the visual of the storyboard and the instant gratification with the simulator. I look forward to a Part II since we didn’t learn how to set up navigation for the contact page and weren’t really given a reason on why we had to move it above the table view. My plan is to create a second app, using only my notes, and customize it to something more my speed. The old phones seemed a little cheesy.
