Beginning in October, we are taking our classes on the road for a Swift and iOS 8 Roadshow. We’re offering a series of one-day classes in eight cities covering Swift and iOS 8, just for experienced iOS developers.
I’m excited to teach the opening classes in Atlanta. On Oct. 2, we’ll begin with the iOS 8 bootcamp, and on Oct. 3, we will follow up with the Swift bootcamp. I’m thrilled to be a part of this series that will help iOS developers stay on the cutting edge and get prepared for the future.
We have offered an introduction to Swift in our iOS and Cocoa bootcamps since shortly after Swift was announced, but if you want an intensive training focused on Swift development, this is your chance to take advantage of Swift’s unique opportunities. We’ll spend the day taking a tour of Swift’s features, getting comfortable with its syntax via numerous presentations and hands-on exercises.
In the Swift one-day class, you’ll get a series of talks that will demonstrate the similarities and differences between Swift and Objective-C, and how to to map the concepts you know and love in Objective-C to Swift. You’ll also learn about Swift’s features that distinguish it from Objective-C and help it to be a more powerful and modern language.
After the bootcamp, you’ll also be able to:
In our iOS 8 one-day bootcamp, you will learn the latest features introduced with iOS 8 and Xcode 6. We’ll show you how to master the biggest iOS release ever, and how iOS 8’s extensibility and adaptability improve the development experience.
We will cover the latest tools, techniques and frameworks, from changes to View Controller architecture to debugging, frameworks and extensions.
You’ll also learn how to:
