Advanced Swift Syntax: Master the Language

Mastering Swift is essential for iOS and macOS developers. Swift offers a modern, efficient, and safe platform with concise syntax for building high-performance applications. Staying up-to-date with Swift's evolution is crucial for app compatibility and competitiveness. Its interoperability with Objective-C and emphasis on readability make it an indispensable skill for developers in the Apple ecosystem.

This course is for Swift developers who already know the language well and want to take their skills to the next level. We will learn advanced concepts, such as using Protocols and Generics. If you've never written Swift before and want an introduction to the language, start here instead.


How this course works 

Below is a selection of videos that enable you to start using more advanced syntax in the Swift programming language. These videos have are part of a larger course, SwiftUI Advanced Learning Bootcamp. We highly recommend watching the full course, which you can view here.


We'll start with the easy stuff and get progressively harder. Let's jump in...




Next we'll take a look at the new async / await syntax that is used to write asynchronous code in your application. Understanding the order of operations when writing this code is crucial to building a multi-threaded application.





Alright! Now we'll get into some of the hard stuff. Let's enter the wild world of Generics1 We use generics to help make our code more reusable less coupled to specific Types in our codebase.





We can also add Protocols into our application, which enable Protocol-Oriented Programming behaviors. In this video we'll look at why these are so helpful to us as developers.





Great job! Before we move on, let's take a look at a coding technique called Dependency Injection. While this isn't directly Swift syntax, understanding the concept of "dependency injection" will help you write better APIs with your own Generics and Protocols.





The final few videos are less common in the Swift language, but still incredibly powerful. These concepts will help you finesse your codebase with convenience methods and custom syntax!





You're a Swift Sensei! 


As a reminder, this was the abbreviated version of the course. If you're serious about SwiftUI, we highly recommend watching the full course here.


I hope this FREE course was worth your time and helped you on your journey to becoming an expert iOS developer! If you enjoyed it, please don't forget to follow us on YouTube!
