DAY 94

Project 18, part 3

Are you ready to wrap up our final technique project? I hope so, because you’ve got another review to complete, plus three fresh challenges to take on. I’ll warn you now: the challenges all involve GeometryReader, because it will force you to think clearly about the way frames for each view are calculated, and how they can be used to create interesting effects.

I realize GeometryReader can really make your head spin, but the only way you’re going to learn to be comfortable with – to use it effectively is to practice, practice, and practice some more.

I’ve quoted Amy Morin before, but I want to do it one last time today. She said, “the greatest things in life tend to happen outside our comfort zones, and doubting your ability to step outside of your comfort zone will keep you stuck.” So, make today the day you step out of your comfort zone and make GeometryReader dance to your tune!

Today you should work through the wrap up chapter for project 18, complete its review, then work through all three of its challenges.

Share your progress!

If you use Twitter, the button below will prepare a tweet saying you completed today, along with a celebratory graphic, the URL to this page, and the challenge hashtag. Don't worry – it won't be sent until you confirm on Twitter!
