DAY 32

Milestone: Projects 4-6


It’s time for another consolidation day, because we’ve covered a lot of ground in the first three topics and it’s important you review them if you want them to stick in your head.

I know I’ve said it before, but I just want to re-iterate the importance of going over what you learned. Chris Bosh, an NBA All-Star basketball player, said “every athlete knows that you get good by practicing, by repeating the same moves until you achieve your goal” – apparently when he was in high school he wouldn’t leave practice until he scored ten free throws in a row.

The value of repetition is that it forces you to go back to something and look at it with fresh eyes – to decide for yourself whether you really understand it, while also transferring short-term knowledge into long-term muscle memory. You’re retraining your brain so you know to instinctively reach for a table view controller or an alert controller to solve specific problems you face in the future.

You’ll also be creating another complete app from scratch today. Once again this is about giving you free rein to solve problems however you see fit, to help you combat blank page paralysis.

Today you have three topics to work through, one of which of is your challenge.

Note: Don’t worry if you don’t complete challenges in the day they were assigned – in future days you’ll find you have some time to spare here and there, so challenges are something you can return back to in the future.
