Every week, new content is published to the growing Treehouse Library! Here is a short list of what was added the week of November 2, 2015.


Android Activity Lifecycle – Ben Deitch

Activities are a crucial component of almost any Android app. In this course we will learn about the lifecycle of our activities, and how we can handle various unexpected changes. We’ll also see how to correctly handle a device rotation as well as how to save data using SharedPreferences. To top it all off, at the end of this course you’ll get a chance to test your Android knowledge with a project.

Object-Oriented Swift 2.0 – Pasan Premaratne

We’ve been working with simple primitive values so far but now it’s time to upgrade our skills! Swift allows you to create custom data types using structures and classes. Both structs and classes achieve the same goal – they allow you to create custom data types to store and pass data around in your code, but they do this in different ways. In this course, we take a look at how to create custom objects, how to store and manipulate the data in these objects and how to create instances of them to work with.
