Accelerator: iOS Bootcamp Details

Build apps just like the pros! Get a strong foundation by starting with fundamentals in Swift, Apple’s modern programming language. Then you’ll move to building modern, stylish apps in Xcode, Apple’s integrated development environment. You’ll use UIKit, SwiftUI, Interface Builder and other tools to build flexible, responsive layouts. You’ll then bring more logic and complexity into your apps as you tackle networking, concurrency, data persistence and design patterns. By the end of this accelerated bootcamp, you’ll have real-world skills, along with solid portfolio and interview preparation, that will put you ahead of the rest in the iOS app developer job market.

Prerequisites: You are self-driven and motivated to learn. Participation in this program requires consistently meeting deadlines and devoting at least 25 hours per week to your work, including two one-hour live classes per week. You’ll need a Mac computer capable of running macOS Monterey, the latest version of Xcode 13.4.1, and a basic understanding of computers and coding.

Week 1

This is your hands-on introduction to the tools and platforms you’ll be working with throughout this accelerated bootcamp. You’ll get a solid overview of Xcode, Swift programming basics, SwiftUI, app structure, controls, app navigation and layout, and Git/GitHub, along with your very first iOS app project!

You’ll dive into the Swift programming language itself, learning fundamentals like if/else statements, variables, constants, type inference, and the Swift standard library. You’ll add more cool functionality to your app using the SwiftUI framework. Finally, you’ll polish your first app to a professional level.

·

Week 2

Now that you’ve gotten well into your first app, you’ll go under the hood to take a deeper look at Apple’s open source programming language, Swift!

Through hands-on examples, you’ll explore core Swift concepts such as loops, collections, types, optionals, functions, classes, and more, as you discover ways to introduce them into your own app.

·

Week 3

Go deeper with your Swift knowledge and gain a thorough understanding of function fundamentals and more advanced features of functions. You'll also practice writing closures, a close relative of functions, and how to use them to manipulate collections.

You’ll also learn to work with named types: structures, classes, enumerations, and protocols. Discover the features they share and the functionality that makes each unique.

·

Week 4

SwiftUI is the future of modern app layout. Tackle SwiftUI Views and modifiers, examine common SwiftUI controls, fundamental layout tools, navigation and data flow, and how to make the most of SwiftUI previews as you build out the user interface of your app.

You’ll learn how to integrate SwiftUI views into your UIKit apps and view hierarchies and how to host UIKit views and view controllers in SwiftUI. You’ll also take a look at how to coordinate data flow from SwiftUI to UIKit and back again!

·

Week 5

From lazy stacks and grids, to scroll view readers, to alignment, you’ll take a look at these all-new SwiftUI features introduced in iOS 14. You’ll also start working with Alignments, which are key to making the most out of Stacks.

You’ll use built-in alignment guides as well as creating your own custom ones, and finally conclude with ZStack and GeometryReader structures. Along the way, you’ll improve your IDE proficiency in Xcode with techniques such as keyboard shortcuts, editing, and other magic not possible with code alone.

·

Week 6

Leverage the power of URLSession to communicate with the internet and make network requests! As part of this, you’ll dive into the modern concurrency features of Swift to download data from the internet and handle errors in the process.

You'll also learn how to group your requests, show download progress, simulate different network speeds, as well as pause, resume, and cancel downloads. Upload data to a server, perform background downloads or network operations, and tackle advanced networking like web sockets, authenticated web service requests, App Transport Security, and cookies!

·

Week 7

Storing data for your apps and retrieving it later is an important skill — and there’s multiple ways to store that data. Learn how to persist your data using files, JSON, and property lists.

After that, one of the most powerful features under the hood of your iOS app is Core Data, which gives you tons of power and control over your app’s data. You’ll start with Core Data fundamentals, and then move on to more complex topics, such as working with data asynchronously and dealing with large files.

·

Week 8

Coding is great, until you hit that one bug that you just can’t fix! Learn the fundamentals of debugging in Xcode, including breakpoints, stack traces, and how to visibly inspect the view hierarchy. You’ll also learn how to use lower-level tools such as LLDB to find out what’s going on.

You’ll also write your first tests for your app, using Swift Package Manager (SPM) and Swift extensions, and you’ll learn how the test-driven development cycle works. You’ll then explore asynchronous testing, test doubles, and finish off with UI testing!

·

Week 9

As your apps become more complex, it’s important to manage the organization of your app in a professional way with design structures. You’ll cover everything from fundamental iOS design patterns like MVC, delegation, strategy, singleton, memento, observer and builder.

But it doesn’t stop there: you’ll also dig in to other common patterns such as MVVM, factory, adapter, iterator, prototype, state, multitask delegate, and facade patterns.

·

Week 10

Modern iOS apps are complex in nature; you have to simultaneously handle user input, network requests, data persistence and other processing tasks all at the same time. That’s why iOS supports a great concurrency model, Grand Central Dispatch, to help you keep everything organized and your app responsive.

Learn how to use dispatch queues and operations in your apps, to keep your app’s UI responsive, and see how to avoid things like data races, priority inversion and deadlock. You’ll also be able to manage groups of tasks with dependencies and use asynchronous API methods in dispatch groups and operation queues.

·

Week 11

Just like everything else in iOS development, there’s more than one way to build things! Swift also offers a new concurrency model, known commonly as the async/await model, which you can use to process your concurrent tasks in a safe, modern manner.

You’ll cover concepts like Tasks, MainActors, async/await, async let, AsyncSequences, canceling tasks, AsyncStream, continuations, unit testing, TaskGroups, Actors and thread-safety as you design apps that are performant under the hood and scale massively well.

·

Week 12

You’re nearly done! This week is dedicated to polishing your capstone portfolio apps, and your instructors will also take you through some of Apple’s newest features that were announced at WWDC 2022.

You’ll take a look at Swift Regex, Swift async algorithms, custom layouts in SwiftUI, passkeys, chart design, and more!

·

Week 13

It’s graduation week! All of your hard work has paid off, and you’re nearly done. But just before you head out into the job search market with your new-found skills, you’ll spend the week preparing for the job search and interview process with your expert mentors.

You’ll learn what stands out to recruiters, how to handle technical interviews, and other tactics that will put you ahead of the competition in your job search as a new iOS developer.
