Making your app accessible

33:12

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

FREE: Making your app accessible

It is my firm belief that every iOS app should be usable to everyone, and putting in the work to make your app function well no matter who is using it says a lot about the kind of developer you are.

Creating a custom property wrapper using DynamicProperty

14:20

INTERMEDIATE SWIFTUI

FREE: Creating a custom property wrapper using DynamicProperty

It’s not hard to make a basic property wrapper, but if you want one that automatically updates the body property like @State you need to do some extra work. In this article I’ll show you exactly how it’s done, as we build a property wrapper capable of reading and writing documents from our app’s container.

Using memoization to speed up slow functions

36:18

HIGH-PERFORMANCE APPS

FREE: Using memoization to speed up slow functions

In this article you’ll learn how memoization can dramatically boost the performance of slow functions, and how easy Swift makes it thanks to its generics and closures.

Trees

31:55

DATA STRUCTURES

FREE: Trees

Trees are an extraordinarily simple, extraordinarily useful data type, and in this article we’ll make a complete tree data type using Swift in just a few minutes. But rather than just stop there, we’re going to do something quite beautiful that I hope will blow your mind while teaching you something useful.

How to use phantom types in Swift

24:11

ADVANCED SWIFT

FREE: How to use phantom types in Swift

Phantom types are a powerful way to give the Swift compiler extra information about our code so that it can stop us from making mistakes. In this article I’m going to explain how they work and why you’d want them, as well as providing lots of hands-on examples you can try.

Ultimate Portfolio App: Introduction

14:17

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

FREE: Ultimate Portfolio App: Introduction

While I’m sure you’re keen to get started programming immediately, please give me a few minutes to outline the goals of this course and explain why it’s different from other courses I’ve written.

Functional programming in Swift: Introduction

6:52

FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING

FREE: Functional programming in Swift: Introduction

Before you dive in to the first article in this course, I want to give you a brief overview of our goals, how the content is structured, as well as a rough idea of what you can expect to find.

Creating a WaveView to draw smooth waveforms

32:08

CUSTOM SWIFTUI COMPONENTS

FREE: Creating a WaveView to draw smooth waveforms

In this article I’m going to walk you through building a WaveView with SwiftUI, allowing us to create beautiful waveform-like effects to bring your user interface to life.

User-friendly network access

14:26

NETWORKING

FREE: User-friendly network access

Anyone can write Swift code to fetch network data, but much harder is knowing how to write code to do it respectfully. In this article we’ll look at building a considerate network stack, taking into account the user’s connection, preferences, and more.

Understanding generics – part 1

20:01

INTERMEDIATE SWIFT

FREE: Understanding generics – part 1

Generics are one of the most powerful features of Swift, allowing us to write code once and reuse it in many ways. In this article we’ll explore how they work, why adding constraints actually helps us write more code, and how generics help solve one of the biggest problems in Swift.

Making the most of optionals

23:07

ADVANCED SWIFT

FREE: Making the most of optionals

Swift’s optionals are implemented as simple enums, with just a little compiler magic sprinkled around as syntactic sugar. However, they do much more than people realize, and in this article I’m going to demonstrate some of their power features that can really help you write better code – and blow your mind along the way.

Shadows and glows

19:50

SWIFTUI SPECIAL EFFECTS

FREE: Shadows and glows

SwiftUI gives us a modifier to make simple shadows, but if you want something more advanced such as inner shadows or glows, you need to do extra work. In this article I’ll show you how to get both those effects and more in a customizable, flexible way.

From labels to matching animations

1:31:57

HACKING WITH SWIFT LIVE 2020

From labels to matching animations

In this part we’ll work through another task to help you try out labels in Journeys, then move on to explore scaled metrics and the beginnings of matched geometry effects.

Understanding generics – part 2

30:48

INTERMEDIATE SWIFT

Understanding generics – part 2

In this second tutorial on generics, we’re going to explore creating several different generic types, look at extending generics, and look at how we can apply our generics knowledge to create property wrappers.

Animating buttons using ButtonStyle

15:44

INTERMEDIATE SWIFTUI

Animating buttons using ButtonStyle

SwiftUI’s ButtonStyle protocol is a great way to reuse designs across your app, to get a consistent look and feel everywhere. But they have one significant problem with animations, and in this article I’ll show you that problem in action, then walk you through how to fix it in a flexible way.

Queues and deques

28:18

DATA STRUCTURES

Queues and deques

Now that we’ve covered stacks and linked lists, queues and deques ought to be easier. In this article we’ll build both data structures in just a few lines of Swift, then explore interesting additions such as contains().

Building with pure functions

24:27

FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING

Building with pure functions

If I were to boil functional programming down to just two rules, the first one would be this: prefer to write pure functions as often as you can. What are pure functions, and why would you want them? Let’s start by exploring that in detail…

Customizing ProgressView using ProgressViewStyle

15:06

INTERMEDIATE SWIFTUI

Customizing ProgressView using ProgressViewStyle

SwiftUI’s ProgressView gives us control over showing determinate or indeterminate progress, but it’s a bit dull – just a thin line and an activity spinner. Fortunately, we also get the ProgressViewStyle protocol so we can build entirely custom progress views, and in this article I’ll show you how it’s done.

First steps in UI

18:01

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

First steps in UI

Now that we have our basic data model configured and coded, we can put it to use by building a simple user interface to help make sure our data is in place and working correctly.

Last but not least: widgets

1:24:55

HACKING WITH SWIFT LIVE 2020

Last but not least: widgets

For our last topic, we’re going to explore widgets. iOS has had widget-like behavior for some time through its Today extensions, but in iOS 14 they gained a lot more functionality.
