M729: First Steps in iOS App Programming in Splash Spring 2021 (Mar. 13, 2021)
Do you want to make your own apps but don’t know where to start? In this course we’ll scratch the surface of iOS app programming. We’ll make a classic 90’s calculator game that’s sure to impress no one. Should be fun! This class is for complete beginners. If you already know any Swift, you’ll probably be bored. Some previous programming experience (eg. Python, C, Fortran) may be helpful, but isn’t necessary. Everyone should come prepared to accept frustration as part of the process. TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS: You must have a Mac running Xcode to participate. Unfortunately, Apple doesn’t make it easy to develop iOS apps from a PC, but to their credit, older computers are fine (I have a 2013 MacbookPro). Xcode is free but requires a lot of space (~12 gb) and takes a while to download. If you wait until Saturday to download Xcode, you’re going to have a bad time.
