About this course
As applications get more and more complex, clients demand faster interaction. They want to receive a post, a notice, an event as soon as it happens. They want to know if a friend is online or offline in a chat application as soon as the other party changes their status. They want to know these things as soon as they happen, in other words, in Real-Time.
Implementing real time systems can be very costly, complicated, and time consuming. This is where Firebase comes into play to save the day.
This is where you get lucky! I have created the class I wish I had when I was trying to take the next step in iOS development with Swift and I can guarantee you that there is nothing like this course out there, trust me, I’ve been there.
During this course I will challenge you to complete many tasks that will help improve your coding and app development skill. My first challenge, challenge number 0 is free. Before you start, turn your phone onto airplane mode and see how many apps are still useful to you. Other than the basic phone functionalities such as alarm, calculator, calendar, etc., most apps require a connection; even games require some sort of connection. We live in a connected world today. People want to share everything, including where they go, what they do, and even what they eat. This is what I’m going to teach you.
I do not believe in one-size fits all. In my view, courses that claim to cater to beginners right through to advanced levels, either fail to stimulate the experienced students, or they overwhelm the newcomers with too much information and complexity.
However, you don’t need to be an expert. If you know what variables, classes, and loops are, you’re ready for this course. If you have taken another course in any other language such as object-c or swift you’re definitely ready for this course. Be sure I’ll always be available to help you along your journey in case you have any problems related to the Swift language.
