À propos de ce cours

An introduction to the Swift programming language. This will prepare you for more extensive iOS app development and build a foundation for advanced iOS development topics. Upon completing this course, you will be able to: 1. Associate the relationship of Swift and Objective-C and their use in iOS and Mac (OS X) programming 2. Develop the ability to read and write Swift code 3. Distinguish how both programming languages can be used together in applications 4. Demonstrate how to write applications entirely in Swift with the help from several iOS programming samples 5. Determine how Swift can be used for development on new platforms such as Apple Watch and Apple TV 6. Create a working client-server iPhone application with location services that you can add to your portfolio....

Great overview of Swift - nice, challenging assignments. Instructors explain concepts well in videos.

xcode 9 does not support the supporting code for assignment 4. needs to be updated.

This is the 5th course in the “iOS Development for Creative Entrepreneurs” specialization. This could have been a great course, but sadly it has several flaws.

1) The target audience seems to be individuals who have never programmed before. Not students half way through the iOS specialization.

2) The material is based on Swift 2 which is fairly outdated as of this writing (July 2017). The current version is Swift 3.1 with Swift 4 waiting in the wings.

3) The presenter for most of the course is hard to understand both verbally and code wise. To complicate matters, the videos are low quality which makes following along with the code difficult and can be frustrating if debugging is not your strong suit.

4) Optionals are a big part of Swift, but are still a fairly new topic for many programmers. The course used optionals but did not explain what they were or how they were used.

IMHO, Coursera should contract with Don Patterson, the instructor for the other 5 parts of the iOS specialization, to create an updated Swift 4 course that better integrates with the iOS specialization.

I would have dropped this cause but it is required for the “iOS Development for Creative Entrepreneurs” specialization.

An OK introduction to the Swift Programming Language and Use in building an iOS Application employing aspects such as UICollectionViews, MapView, Network calls among others. Most Videos are of poor quality and the delivery of the content is not that great. Finally its outdated, could be improved a lot.

The course is ambitious and thorough in its instruction, but is badly in need of an update. Swift 4 is now on the horizon (previewed already at WWDC 2017), but this course teaches version 2.0. The language has evolved significantly (3.1 as I write this review). Not only does the learner miss out on many of the new features, but quite a few things in this course are simply not true anymore, and will be contradicted by the Apple documentation. In effect, to pass the quizzes for this course, you have to give an answer that was true for obsolete Swift 2.0, but it false for current XCode and Swift development.

Aside from this, the two programming assignments are weak. The first is trivial, and the second is a nicely complex implementation of swift and iOS, but the learner is only responsible for making minor changes before submitting.

Redo the course with Swift 3.1 and XCode 8.3.

This is a good course in swift. The lecture videos goes into some depth, not just skim through the basics. So in that regard it's good. But the quizzes and assignment can be a bit improved. With that said, I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested learning iOS development with Swift.

DO NOT TAKE THIS COURSE - THE guy who reads (not teaches) the course, Justin-Nicholas Toytama is horrendous. He's too lazy to even type out the codes and has the world's most monotonous voice.

He pauses often to read this notes and has 0 enthusiasm teaching this class. If this class is not part of the certificate specialization, i wouldn't even pay for this course. $64 gets you further with Nick Walter or Rob Percival's Udemy course.
