In this demo session for the iOS development course, iOS author and career developer Ahmed Bakir will help you get started on your journey as an app developer. Following the format of the course, he will give a short lecture introducing the basic structure of an app and Apple's developer tools, perform a demo of the steps involved to setup a simple app, and save some time for you to perform the same actions yourself. During the last portion, you will have a chance to get debugging help and ask personalized questions related to setting up your app. By the end of the demo, you should have a simple app running on your computer that you can use as a starting point for future development.
Note: If you would like to participate in the live coding session, please install XCode on your Mac before class starts (it can take up to 2 hours to install).
