Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Learning App Development in iOS 8 Tutorial," a fundamentals course providing an introduction to development and distribution with the Apple iOS software development kit (SDK).
The iOS SDK includes the languages XCode and Objective C, along with frameworks that make it possible for apps to receive and process information from the device's hardware and perform other critical functions such as linking with social networking platforms, media libraries, and more.
Infinite Skills' "Learning App Development in iOS 8 Tutorial" provides introductions to working with social APIs, App Store purchasing, motion sensors, and location services, and teaches the essentials of XCode and Objective C. Combined with the course on the new Swift language, sold separately, Infinite Skills offers a total package for getting started in iOS 8 development.
Course author Keith Welch has spent more than 30 years working in the software industry, with 10 years working in .NET technologies, and the last 10 years focusing on mobile development. His many proficiencies include iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, ASP.NET, and more. Welch currently specializes in mobile developer tools, development consulting, and custom app development.
Welch begins by explaining the basics of object-oriented programming, along with how to register with Apple as a developer and begin using the iOS SDK.
The course then covers the interfaces of the different frameworks and table views, before Welch begins with the basics of apps, creating navigation and toolbars, other controls, and working with social media and location services.
The course concludes with chapters covering data storage, beta testing, working with iCloud, the new kits in iOS 8, and working with the App Store.
"These core frameworks are critical to providing the functionality that has made iOS the most used mobile platform on the market," Welch explains.
"In this collection of courses, we'll look at several of the primary frameworks that are critical to a wide variety of iOS applications, along with the new capabilities of iOS 8."
