What’s Inside the Course?
This is a massive course, containing over 350 videos in a whopping 36 sections:
Sections 1–6: Your First Swift 4 and iOS 11 App: You’ll start the course with a bang by creating your first app, an entertaining game called Bulls-Eye.
Sections 7–12: Programming in Swift: You’ll then take a deep dive into the Swift language itself and cover fundamental programming concepts such as variables, loops, collections, structures, classes, optionals, closures, and more.
Sections 13–16: Your Second Swift 4 and iOS 11 App: Once you have a solid understanding of the Swift language, you’ll switch back to app development and create your second app, called Checklists, where you’ll learn about table views and navigation controllers.
Sections 17–18: Saving Data in iOS: We’ll then show you how to save your app’s data. We’ll cover all the methods, from raw file access to property lists to NSCoding to Core Data — and you’ll learn when to use each.
Sections 19–20: Beginning Auto Layout: Next, we’ll demystify the magic of Auto Layout, which you can use to make your app look great on a variety of device sizes.
Sections 21–22: Beginning Collection Views: Learn all about using collection views in iOS, starting with the basics, such as setting up a collection view in Interface Builder, and then move right through to some more advanced topics, like creating and manipulating custom cells and layouts.

Sections 26–28: Beginning iOS Animations: Get started with iOS Animations! Watch this series to learn about animating Auto Layout constraints, views, and view controller transitions. Give your app the cool effects that will set it apart from all the others!
Sections 29–30: Beginning Core Data: Learn the basics of using Core Data in this beginning series! You’ll learn how to model your data with attributes and relationships, add and update records, and then fetch your data with sorting and filtering options.
