About This Class

Creating your app in Swift-3 or Objective-C can be greatly enhanced by adding in Animated backgrounds. It's easier than you think. This lesson is specifically designed for Beginners and those new to programming with Swift-3 and Objective-C. Both versions are included. This makes if very very easy to see how the differences, and similarities compare.

One of the surest ways of engaging your user is to provide an interesting user experience, and nothing will do this quicker than having an animated background to your app. Unobtrusive is best, but animated no less. Of course you can animate comic book characters, or landscape scenery. You can even play a short video in the background for that really special effect.

It's easier than you think, as this lesson will show you how to achieve the right effect in BOTH Objective-C, and the exact same app in Swift 3. XCode is now in release 8.1 as of this writing, but the code is so simple, even a beginner can do it.

For aspiring Authors - selecting the right genre to writ under is often a challenge, but one of the nicest ones is Romance. Everyone wants a bit of Romance in their lives, and people love to read about other peoples lives, and to watch them on TV and in the movies. Look at the success of some of the long running "Soaps". My master course on How to "Write  A Romance Story" will get you going in the right direction easily and quickly. Really, it's not as hard as you think.

For creative people who like to work with glass, I believe that there's a creative side in us all. Consider the wide range of subjects I teach. They are all subjects that I have learnt in order to further enhance my own creative energies in Fused Glass creation, just as you can. Fused Glass is such a beautiful medium to work in, and you can create beautiful pieces from tiny jewellery pieces up to shimmering table ware.  Check out my courses related to Glass Fusing and Photoshop and I'm sure you'll be walking away with a masterpiece of your own in no time.

Computer technology may seem like a black art to many, but again, I wanted to overcome my natural inclinations to shun this area. To my amazement I discovered a world of creativity awaited me, from writing the actual programs to run application on my iPhone, to the design work necessary to create the art work I needed to enhance these little programs. I've been programming now since the early 1980s, but still come back to my first love - Writing.
