If you want to learn how to write software for Apple devices, you need to know Swift and SwiftUI. Knowing the ins and outs of Apple’s programming language, and its cross-platform user interface framework, means you can build apps that work on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch and Apple TV.
Whether entertaining ourselves with streaming apps, playing addictive games or scrolling through social media, we’re all sure to be spending a lot of time on our phones in 2021. And, while you might be used to seeing the same familiar apps, what if the next hit iPhone app is the one you create?
The payoff of learning a new skill or developing existing ones are endless; whether that means a higher likelihood of making yourself more marketable in the workplace or starting a side project. The Stone River eLearning Lifetime Membership made it easier for anyone to learn everything from iOS app development to graphic design at your pace and even straight from your iPhone.
iOS 11 is about to launch, and it’s going to be a big one. With all manner of updates and entirely new features, it’s going to give developers a lot to work with and a lot to learn. That means it’s time to get studying, coders.
“Sketchnotes” are an increasingly popular form of visual note-taking. By combining text and images, sketchnotes are not only beautiful, but often easier to recall than text alone. The technique is an effective way of capturing notes and ideas in the classroom, meetings and conferences.
All next week, illustrator and senior UX/UI designer Andy McNally will be sketchnoting Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) for us, starting with the big keynote on Monday.
Andy has been covering Apple’s events as sketchnotes for some time. We ran some of his sketchnotes from last year’s event, which proved very popular. He’s back again this year, and is planning to publish sketchnotes from a variety of sessions at the conference.
Before he gets started, Andy shared some tips and techniques for getting started on sketchnoting yourself. Let’s take a look:
