I often wonder if I could've gotten to where I am in a quicker way and there are things that I wish I knew before I started and this is a list of the 5 that stick out in my mind.
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
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
Unlike humans who get bored easily, computers are great at repetitive tasks. They do them fast. We have to have an easier way of having a computer do a repetitive task instead of writing the same line of code over and over and over. We use loops to do this.
Like comparison operators, Boolean Operators evaluate these expressions downs to a Boolean value. They help up achieve this by allowing us to create more complex conditional statements.
Conditional Statements are used to break the linear code. We don't always want to have our code follow a straight lines we want to branch off based on a a condition. If the condition is true we want to go one way and if it's false it goes another way.
