I'm here with another blog sharing my experience of reading the UIKIt Apprentice book from Kodeco (THE NEW RAYWENDERLICH.COM). The reason why I decided to dive deep into this book is to learn more about UIKit.
The book takes you through a series of learning the fundamentals of UIKit through building projects. The first project is building a Bull's Eye application through interface builder.
The goal of the project is to teach Xcode, Interface Builder, and Swift in an easy-to-understand manner for beginners like myself.
So far I have learned how to create a very basic single button application which shows an alert message
I have also learned about implementing sliders and labels on interface builder.
Some things I have learned were:
- Switching the apps to landscape mode
- Basics of object-orientated Programming
- Added controls to start building the user interface of the app
- setting the inital slider value
- learned how to generate a random number
- added rounds to the game
- display the target value
I'll be doing part 2 where i will talk about adding scores to the application
