Apple Watch: Go From Newbie to Pro by Building 14 Apps
In April 2015, Apple will release the most anticipated product of the year- the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch is on track to be in the hands of more than 25 million people year end. Take this course now and have your own apps available at the time of the Watch’s release.
I firmly believe that the best way to learn is by doing. So we’ll go through everything step by step in the making of 14 different apps from scratch. From these 14 apps you will learn all the skills needed to make your own apps for the Apple Watch.
The best part is that no prior programming experience is required. I’ve been the beginner that had trouble with complex tutorials, and will never speak over your head. If you’ve got some programming experience already however, you’ll have everything you need to dive headfirst into Apple Watch’s WatchKit and Swift so that you can work to an impressive skill level.
We’ll dive into a thorough explanation of all WatchKit SDK elements including actionable notifications, glances, general interface principles, interacting with the iPhone, and working with API’s.

I'm Nick Walter, an iOS developer that has been focused on mobile app design and creation for over 3 years. My involvement in the iOS community started off with a bang, and in 2013 I was one of 25 students worldwide to be invited to Apple's "Cocoa Camp." Within my community, I am also co-president of an Apple developer group called "Cocoa Heads."
I've always had an itch to make things, but growing up in a small town I had limited access to programming resources. This frustration drove my early interest in online education. After experimenting with various companies, learning styles, and teaching processes, I've adopted the best strategies and used them in my courses. My experience as an online student has directly influenced my teaching style, and I am now proud to help students all over the world with their online learning goals.
Since the announcement of the new Swift programming language by Apple, I have buried myself in the Apple documentation and any online resource that is available. In my first Swift course, I provide students with a detailed explanation of the topics and skills needed to learn Swift, an overview of the basic features of the new language, and get you started to begin building your first products.
Prior to teaching the internet's first course on Swift, I have created 5 iOS apps from scratch that are currently live in the App Store and being used by thousands of users worldwide. Using my experience launching my own apps, I'll walk you through the shortcuts that can save you time and frustration from having to teach yourself.
