Sean - you definitely delivered an amazing course! This is pretty much what I needed. It allowed me to learn a lot with the latest version of Swift. It showed me things that I need to focus on.
This has been one of those thorough and a "real" courses. Maybe even the only one! I am humbled by the fact that you walked us through the process - even under the hood - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Your way of presenting the material was spot-on.
What I really like about this course is that it focuses immediately on creating the app, rather than spending several lessons on Swift itself.
The main reason for me to take this course was the fact that there is NO storyboard involved. Storyboard might be great for some, and might speed up some designs, but I was very confused by the storyboard and the constraints. The reason - I did not really understand the underlying code.
I'm sure if I went back to the storyboard now it would be much easier to understand after this course.
This has been a brilliant course. I've been a senior Windows developer for many years and found switching to Apple methodologies difficult precisely because there are no courses like this around. The constant nagging in the back of your head of "am I doing this the right way" have all but been silenced. Going through the whole process from design to refactoring the final code just brings the process into focus in a way that typical tutorials never do.
This course was great! What really stood out to me was building the app from the ground up. Ironically, the little mistakes you made and bugs you introduced helped me understand different types of mistakes and what to look out for. It actually felt very natural, because you fixed them right after and it wasn't a big deal.
I did a Udemy course and it's easy to just download the template files and add missing code while you follow the course. But the file structure and how you built upon existing code, later putting it in a different spot etc. was just great. You really start to understand what to put where and I think this is a much more realistic representation of how a programmer would actually create an app.
Sean’s “Take Home Project” course is great for anyone looking for that first iOS developer job (or even those with jobs that just want to learn more). Sean does an awesome job at explaining the thought process and iterating over the code to improve as we go. I’ve been a “professional” iOS developer for a couple years now and still learned a bunch from Sean. It was a great course that I really enjoyed. Whether seeking that first job or just wanting to learn more, check it out!
I loved every second of it! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to become an iOS developer. Before taking your course, I wasn't very confident in my iOS skills. It was very helpful to see you walk through an entire project from design to refactoring and explain your thought process at each step. I admire your clean coding style and attention to detail in putting user experience first.
Thanks to this course I was able to have all the confidence to apply for my first iOS developer job…and I GOT IT!
