Displaying Data with Table Views in Swift 2 Pasan Premaratne

One of most common user interface elements used in iOS apps are table views. Table views are flexible components that allow us to display data in a hierarchical manner. In this course, we’re going to use a table view, in conjunction with our knowledge of networking to build an app that finds restaurants around us. To do so, we’ll learn about the basic structure and usage of a table view, how to write intermediate networking code, how to implement location and much more.

Objective-C for Swift Developers – Gabe Nadel

Now that you’re up to speed with Swift, it’s time to get familiar with its older sibling – Objective-C. Objective-C has a rich history and a very different way of doing things that may come as a surprise. In this course we’re going to take a tour through the Objective-C language using Swift as our base. By the end of this course you will know the ins and outs of using the Objective-C language and be able to use either Swift, Objective-C or both to build iOS apps.


Build a REST API With Express – Andrew Chalkley

REST services are a powerful way of providing functionality over the internet. Not only can they be used as a foundation to build sophisticated web applications, they can also be integrated into any number of other projects, making them the ultimate in modularity and reusability! You can build a REST service in many different languages/platforms, but for this course, we will be building one with Express, a popular framework written for Nodejs. We will also use Mongoose with MongoDB to persist our data.

Django REST Framework – Chris Jones

You’ve been learning Django and building great things. Suddenly it hits you. How do I take all this data I have and make it available to the world? Look no further than Django Rest Framework (DRF). DRF is a powerful and flexible framework, on top of a framework (Django), for building RESTful Web APIs. Built-in features like the Web browsable API, authentication policies, robust serialization for your models and excellent documentation make it a great choice for your API needs.

  2. Hi Guys, I am looking into learning objective- c so I can develop some of my games on iOS, do you cover this on this course? I already program in a few languages so I would be looking at something that is not too basic.
