Day 1 & 2 - Basic swift (2 days)

  • Introduction to playgrounds
  • The basic tools for the course
  • Constants
  •  in Swift constants are preferred to variables and how Swift passes data between constants
  • Strings
  • How strings work in Swift, including Swift 5 strings
  • Data types
  •  Swift is a very strongly typed language so understanding types is essential
  • Constant arrays
  • Use immutable data collections and their functions
  • Constant sets
  • How to use sets to remove duplicates from datasets
  • Tuples
  • This is a data type used in functional languages and allows the use of an ad-hoc data type
  • Constant operators
  • Understand the basic operators that can be used on constants
  • Program flow and control
  •  Understand how to control of program operation in Swift and the enhanced features not available in other languages.
  • Intervals, ranges and Strides
  • Ways of building and comparing ranges and sequences without iteration
  • Optionals
  • This is a unique feature of swift that allows basic errors to be handled, when no information is returned.
  • Function signatures
  •  An overview of  functional signatures (concepts)
  • Closures
  •  The use of anonymous functions and lambdas in Swift and passing functionality (not data)
  • Enumerations
  •  Basic custom types built of limited data sets
  • Constant Dictionaries
  • use of key, value datasets in Swift
  • Pattern matching
  • filtering data, datasets and enumerations using switch

Cont...

  •  introduction to basic functions, passing data and the differences with Closures
  • Sorted, Map, Filter, Reduce, Flatmap and Zip
  • standard functional types implemented in Swift
  • Variables
  •  how variables should be implemented in Swift and the differences compared to other languages
  • Variable operators
  • Operators that can only be applied to variable (not constants)
  • Variable arrays
  •  extra features of variable arrays compared to constant arrays
  • Variable Dictionaries
  •  extra features of variable dictionaries compared to constant dictionaries
  • Variable sets
  •  extra features of variable sets
  • Loops
  •  variable loop structures available within Swift
  • Structures
  • this covers the basic type that is most important in Swift that by default is always used in preference to classes (all standard types are structures not classes)
  • Classes and objects
  • how to use basic classes and object that allow Swift to interface with iOS and MacOS
  • ARC
  • Memory and reference counting in Swift
  • Functions

Day 3 & 4 - Advanced Swift (2 days)

  • More Enums, structures, classes and init
  • a deeper dive into advance features Enums, structures, classes and how to use initialisers
  • Observers
  • implementation of the observer design pattern in Swift
  • Composition
  •  Using composition over inheritance in Swift, which is a standard design patten in iOS and MacOS

Day 3 & 4 - Advanced Swift (2 days)

  • Built in Functions
  • suctions that are standard in Swift
  • Extensions
  •  extending types in Swift including Enumerations, Structures and Classes
  • Protocols
  •  implementing the interface design pattern is Swift
  • Protocol oriented programming (Only available in Swift no other language)
  • using extension of protocols to remove the need to use Classes and references to implement inheritance and multiple inheritance
  • Standard Library protocols
  • protocols that are supplied by default in the Swift language
  • Generics
  •  using generic functions in Swift to reduce the need for overloading of standard algorithms
  • Inheritance
  •  Basic Class inheritance as implemented in Swift required for iOS
  • More Functions
  •  more advanced features of functions in Swift
  • Currying / Partial Calls
  • implementing a functional design pattern to pass both data and functionality between closures and functions
  • Inspection
  • Grand Central Dispatch
  •  how to implement multi-threading in Swift programs using Apples standard GCD
  • Persistance in Swift
  • Saving data in swift
  • Handeling JSON via Swift
  • using the codable protocol to convert JSON to standard and custom types
  • interaction with Objective-C
  •  how to access Objective-C class instances in Swift
  • Access Controls
  •  levels of protection within Swift
  • Error Handling
  •  How to handle errors and exceptions in Swift when one is Thrown
  • Using composition over inheritance in Swift, which is a standard design patten in iOS and MacOS
