Swift 2: [iOS] beginner resources

A lot of people who are new to iOS development have absolutely no idea where to begin. I have decided to compile a list of free and paid resources to hopefully guide people in the right direction. Please comment below if you are aware of others as well.

 

Free

 

Paid

  • The Complete iOS 9 Developer Course
    • For $10¬Ļ, ¬†you are taught how to use¬†Xcode 7 & Swift 2 to make real apps like Uber, Instagram & Flappy Bird. Includes free web hosting, assets & ebook.
  • The Swift Developers Cookbook by Erica Sadun
    • A great book by¬†renowned author Erica Sadun, for developers who are¬†moving to modern Swift from Objective-C, from older versions of the Swift language, or from the world of non-Apple languages.

WWDC 2015

WWDC 2015: Student Scholarship App

This year I have decided to work on an application for WWDC 2015. Students are encouraged to either create an application using Swift or a combination of Swift and Objective-C. I have decided to take the all Swift approach.

Lot of excitement!

Diversity at WWDC

Apple has increased the number of students selected to 350 and added a diverse set of STEM organizations. It’s clear there’s a push for change and Apple is leading the way.
