The fastest-growing software market today involves mobile applications (or apps). In this course, you'll learn to use the free Xcode compiler and the Objective-C/Swift programming language to program your own apps that you can sell through Apple's App Store, reaching millions of potential customers around the world.
You'll start with the basic steps to writing any program, then progress to using Xcode—the same compiler that Apple, Microsoft, Adobe, and many other companies use to write programs and applications. Along the way, you'll explore examples and perform simple coding exercises to build your confidence using Xcode and Objective-C/Swift.
Even if you're new to programming or have experience programming a different type of computer, this course will offer the guidance you need to build your own apps. By the end of this course, you'll know how to find your way around Xcode and write Objective-C/Swift commands, so you'll be ready to start creating your very own Mac, iPhone, or iPad programs!
