Class Project

Build your first iPhone app

This class is designed for non-geeks and people without any programming experience. I will teach you everything you need to know about Xcode and Objective-C to get started making an iPhone app.

Paul's Course Update - 12/10/13

  • Signup for the brand new iPhone Course (iOS 7.0) to learn how to make iPhone apps for the new iPhone 5S and Xcode 5.
  • This course teaches iOS 6.0 and Xcode 4 (Last year's iPhone software).

Learning how to program is hard for a non-programmer, but with my class you'll acomplish small learning goals. Your small successes will allow you to tackle bigger challenges and build your ideas into iPhone apps.

What You'll Learn

  • Functions, Numbers, and Loops. You'll learn how to use functions, numbers, and loops to create work without causing your app to crash.
  • Using Objective-C. You'll use Objective-C and C programming Memory management.
  • Custom Objects and Code Files. We'll create new object types that will power your iPhone apps.
  • Memory and iPhone App Basics. We'll prevent memory leaks and use the tool Instruments to find problem areas in your app.
  • User Interface Design. We'll work on first designing an app using Interface Builder and then connect actions to your buttons and text fields.

What You'll Make

During this class you will create an iPhone app. You will
design user interfaces in Interface Builder and piece them together into a working program. Many of my students have built apps with the experience from this class. Checkout the latest student apps on the App Store!

I skipped the “real world” to run my own software studio called Artwork Evolution. We design photo apps, entertainment apps, and games for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
