Not sure how helpful this would be, seems like an intro dev course. Might come in handy learning your way around app internals for tweaks for those that are interested.
First deal so be nice:)

Heat added. As a platform for learning, I think Udemy is brilliant. Never pay more than £10.99 for any course though, they always have ‘offers’ on.

For IOS learning, I can really recommend this tutor udemy.com/use…al/
Shame it's hard to understand what he's saying. Not only does he have very strong accent, he talks at 100mph. Not sure my ears can keep up, lol!
Ok for free but I can tell you now that the way this tutor implements some things is incorrect and has major security implications.

Hey, I was about to buy this last night!
Is there a course you'd recommend?
Thanks!

Had a go on this - great idea. So jealous of youngsters with all their opportunities, time and their music...
Thanks looks really good, heat added.

Ears can keep up, it's the brain you should be worried about.

Yeah agreed, Robs courses are very well written and delivered - plus you get free included web hosting with all of them too, very useful if you are starting out and don't have any web server space
I don't mean to rain on anyones parade here: I am a huge, huge fan of online learning courses. However, please do consider this. I'm an IT Professional of 10 years albeit, not a developer. I decided to get a couple of courses on udemy as my friend is an iOS developer and suggested it might be a good "introduction".

And introduction it is. Rob's way of programming is very different to how it "should" be done. When I showed my friend his code, my friend said it works but it's A) very out-dated, B) poor programming practice.

Now i'm not having a go at Rob's course. Some other developers on Udemy claim you can get a job after watching their videos - this is simply not true... If you watch all their videos, and do a good 100-300+ hours of work on the side.

Many videos use older versions of Swift (apple's programming language) or xcode. Rob's videos pose a frequent problem with this: he'll show you how to do something in Swift 2, or Swift 3 - but Swift 4 is out now so your code is broken. And if you're a complete newbie who has never programmed anything in your life, you're going to be spending 99.9% of your time on google.

I'm not trying to put anyone off these courses: they're not bad for the money. But just don't fall into the trap thinking a £10 online course is going to get you a 20k+ iOS developer job. You'll have do to massive amounts of self-study outside of the online course before you can even think of applying to a real-life job.
Really agree with in$anity - I'm doing a full time software engineering degree but went for a job interview with a software developer and felt completely lost! I've done a few courses like this and ebooks and while they can teach you a lot, they're often out of date because the tech changes so fast.

Good place to start for a hobby though!

Partially agree, but to say that because swift 4 is now out that all your previous versions of code written in swift will be broken is not true at all.......

When I migrated my code from swift 3 to swift 4 it all just worked (large library of code), the only issues I encounted was the substring function has changed from being a method to using array indicies and selectors needed the @objc prefix.

The migrator handled this without any input and worked.

It is true - the code WILL be broken. Sure you can use the automated migration tool - and yes that's perfectly acceptable but if that tool was broken or you want to refactor code - good luck. My point is, these courses will not make you an iOS developer as such - you'll learn legitimate things and it's a good overall course, but *some* of these courses give the impression you'll be a developer after just 30-40 hours of video content. 30-40 hours isn't even approaching beginner level. I just think it's fair to set expectations so people don't think these courses are a one stop shop to becoming a developer and getting a job right after they've finished the course.

but this is the same with any coding language, for example the recent migration to PHP 7 from 5.x was fairly smooth with not much to change.... Lots of PHP tutorials are still relevant and are still usable. Being a developer is not about just copying and pasting code, it's about understanding what the code is actually doing, so when language versions change you understand the effect it will have on your code.

I agree that the courses are marketed as being a be all and end all to becoming a developer, which like you say it not even close to the truth.

My point was that just saying that all previous courses/content is now irrelevant on a language version change is not true. Things can change but most of the time the basics are still the same. For example in iOS dev, implementing a table view using the datasource and delegate has been the same since the swift v1.0 (which is around 3 1/2 years old now).

I'm a full time Software Dev Engineer and wouldn't reccomend this as an intro to programming / software dev at any level whether it's free or not
OP .. for future reference, Freebies should be placed in Freebies, and Deals in Deals ...

Your Posting is purely a Freebie (and not Deal), so wrongly placed - I also almost missed this one on account of similar, but it's all good though (as I had HUKD in Highlights mode, I got to see your thing still, lol).

Just an early head's up for you for future reference etc? (as you're an HUKD Posting Newbie (for now?). :-)

Good Freebie by the way. :-)
