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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sorted arrays

15:34

DATA STRUCTURES

Sorted arrays

A sorted array is one that retains a correct sort order no matter how and when you add items. Although this sounds simple enough to implement, in this article you’ll see that it’s actually quite fun to explore because there are a number of interesting challenges we’ll face.

Rendering a line chart

28:41

RENDERING CHARTS IN SWIFTUI

Rendering a line chart

Line charts come in a couple of different forms, but they share the same goal of visualizing a change of value over time. In this article we’ll look at building a customizable line chart from scratch in SwiftUI.

UIKit updates: UICollectionView lists

1:26:39

HACKING WITH SWIFT LIVE 2020

UIKit updates: UICollectionView lists

In this part we’re going to build an app to explore SF Symbols, all built using the massive new updates to UICollectionView that let it act like a table view.

Wrap up, part one

11:48

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Wrap up, part one

We’ve just put in place the last major code to complete part one of this app. Let’s clean up just a tiny bit, then look over what we’ve made so far.

The ultimate Box type

13:45

INTERMEDIATE SWIFT

The ultimate Box type

Boxing allows us to wrap up a struct in a class, to make it easy to share in several places. I’ve touched on boxing briefly previously, but here I want to take the concept much further to add useful protocol conformances that really powerful up its usefulness.

Reading awards JSON

34:37

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Reading awards JSON

Parsing data into your app is the single most common task any iOS developer needs to do, so in this article we’ll start to build out an Awards tab using JSON.

Creating the Home view

35:49

ULTIMATE PORTFOLIO APP

Creating the Home view

So far our home view has simply been a host for adding test data, but that changes now: we’re going to make the home view a summary of all their project progress, plus the most important items coming up next.

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.
