Onwards Into Training

Classroom-TechnologyBack To The Classroom....

As detailed in my last post I've gone through a fair bit of self-training.  Personally I think I've got off to a fairly solid start - I'm comfortable enough with the language (to a point!) and am able to find my way round Xcode reasonably well.

But this doesn't exactly mean I should stop now!


In order to achieve my goal of being proficient in the least amount of time possible, I'm going to be going through a round of organised, professional, training.  Starting tomorrow....

The aim is to go through three courses over the next couple of months, gradually increasing in content complexity, each building on what has been done on the previous course.  Trying to find companies that can actually offer Swift training has been a job in itself, the language is so new there are very few companies out there that supply any meaningful courses.  However, I have found two in the London area that provide courses and I have booked and paid for the first one.

  • Beginning Swift Development
    This 2 day course is designed to teach the language fundamentals, I'm using this to cement what I've already learnt.  Besides, seeing as it's starting tomorrow I got one hell of a discount

  • Swift Programming for iPhone and iPad Applications
    Here we have a 5 day course designed to work with Swift end-to-end in building applications.  Going to get dirty hands on Databases, Web Services, the App Store, Design Patterns and a whole lot more.  Going to be a very intensive week!

  • Advanced Swift Development
    Another 2 day course designed to go "deep dive" into Swift to look at the more complex end of the language

This coupled with the London UserGroup meetings, I'm very hopeful that my skillset will expand very, very quickly.
