This sprint was titled, Intermediate Swift. That got me thinking so everything we had done for the past 13 weeks was all beginning swift. There is so much to learn about this, yikes!! But it's ok I can get through this. We started off learning about swift generics, luckily I had done some reading and… Continue reading Lambda School – iOS Development Bootcamp – Week 14 & 15
After a very discouraging two weeks, we moved on to learning CoreData. It was very refreshing to learn something new that didn't involve any design. Core Data was in no way easy but it was easier than programmatic UI design, Core graphics and animations. Core Data CoreData to me was like working with databases. I… Continue reading Lambda School – iOS Development Bootcamp – Week 12 & 13
I knew it was bound to happen I just didn't know when it would but I had to hit that learning wall at some point and this was it. I got through it but I struggled.
My first complete app from concept to finished product all by myself. I struggled, I cried, I laughed, I got super excited and I repeated this several times over and over again, but it was worth it.
Here's my plan to build an app that uses the cocktail DB API which can be found at https://www.thecocktaildb.com/ . I choose this API because it's free, I don't plan on posting this app on the Apple Store so they allow free use for educational purposes. It also has different endpoints and this is great… Continue reading Building an iOS app using an API
After the super challenge that was our first build week, I thought I could use some relaxing studying but it didn't happen these past two weeks. We jumped right into new content. We got to work on iOS Networking Basics. We got started with closures, followed by a new way of using enums and then… Continue reading Lambda School – iOS Development Bootcamp – Week 9 & 10
I didn't think that I would be able to build my own app while completing only 6 weeks at a bootcamp but I was. I had a great team and together we accomplished so much.
Half of Build Week has gone by and my group and I are pretty close to having a viable MVP product. We can now start adding more features and working on a better UI, UX experience.
I have some advice for those of you that are learning to code. I am doing this through Lambda school but what I have learned can be used for any other bootcamp or if you are learning on your own.
By the end of this sprint I felt like I was walking on a nice paved street when all of a sudden I just fell into a hole and couldn't climb back up. Let me explain what happened. The sprint started off at a good pace we built on what we learned the previous two… Continue reading Lambda School – iOS Development Bootcamp – Week 3 & 4
