Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. this week introduced its "Mastering iOS Development - iCloud Tutorial," an advanced-level course for iOS 8 developers providing targeted instruction on how to build your apps and set up all the necessary protocols for seamless synchronization between iOS and iCloud.
iCloud provides remote storage for calendars, contacts, photos, and documents, allowing users to synchronize data between computers and mobile devices. The course includes lessons on interacting with the new features using the iOS 8 software development kit (SDK).
Infinite Skills' "Mastering iOS Development - iCloud" offers a collection of concise lessons designed to teach iOS developers how to incorporate iCloud functionality with iOS apps, allowing apps to interact with data stored in the iCloud suite.
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 Android, Windows Mobile, ASP.NET, and more. Welch currently specializes in mobile developer tools, development consulting, and custom app development.
Welch begins by explaining how to set up an app for iCloud using the local file system, with lessons covering how to work with directories, manage files, read and write, and archive.
From there, the course moves on to setting up an app for iCloud. Lessons include iCloud structure and functionality, working with the UI Document, how to perform management tasks such as updating and deleting, working with multiple file documents, and using the iCloud Key Store.
The course concludes with a look at the CloudKit, a new feature in the new iOS 8 SDK designed to facilitate and secure data interactions with iCloud.
"This course will explain and demonstrate how to use the iCloud API, working in iOS Objective C," Welch explains.
"iCloud allows sharing data among devices, even Windows Boxes. That makes it a great feature for syncing data like contact information, photo sharing, calendar, and documents, and we'll show you how to begin using these features in your apps."
