Lambda School – iOS Development Bootcamp – Week 9 & 10

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 using APIs to build apps. I have experience using APIs with Javascript so I (wrongly) thought that it would be somewhat the same but it’s not. There is so much more work to using an API with swift than with Javascript.

The high-level understanding of APIs with swift was there, it’s the little pieces of intricate code and breaking up of code that was new and a bit challenging.

Lambda gave us 2 weeks off to help us deal with the coronavirus and I plan to spend those two weeks to fully understand how to use an API.

For the next two weeks, I will be blogging about building an app using the CocktailDB API. You can find it at https://www.thecocktaildb.com/api.php?ref=apilist.fun

I plan on making a simple UI UX to start off with and maybe with time figure out how to make it look nice.
