This module surveys the structure of a Swift program, both physically and conceptually. You’ll learn how Swift code files are organized, and you’ll be introduced to the most important underlying concepts of the object-oriented Swift language: variables and functions, scopes and namespaces, object types and their instances.


This module explores Swift functions. We start with the basics of how functions are declared and called; then we discuss parameters — external parameter names, default parameters, and variadic parameters. Then we dive deep into the power of Swift functions, with an explanation of functions inside functions, functions as first-class values, anonymous functions, functions as closures, curried functions, and function references and selectors.

This module starts with Swift variables — their scope and lifetime, and how they are declared and initialized, along with features such as computed variables and setter observers. Then some important built-in Swift types are introduced, including Booleans, numbers, strings, ranges, tuples and Optionals.

In this module, we will learn all about Swift object types — classes, structs, and enums. It explains how these three object types work, and how you declare, instantiate, and use them. Then it proceeds to polymorphism and casting, protocols, generics, and extensions. The module concludes with a discussion of Swift’s umbrella types, such as Any and AnyObject, and collection types — Array, Dictionary, and Set (including option sets).

In this module, we start with Swift’s flow control structures for branching, looping, and jumping, including error handling. Then we will discuss about Swift access control (privacy), introspection(reflection), and how to create your own operators. There follows a discussion of some recently added Swift language features: synthesized protocol implementations, key paths, and dynamic member lookup. We will also discuss about Swift’s memory management in this module.

This module tours Xcode and explains the architecture of the project, the collection of files from which an app is generated.

In this module, we will discuss about nibs. A nib is a file containing a drawing of your interface. Understanding nibs — knowing how they work and how they relate to your code — is crucial to your use of Xcode and to proper development of just about any app.

In this module, we will discuss about the Xcode documentation and other sources of information on the API.


This module explains editing your code, testing and debugging your code, and the various steps you’ll take on the way to submitting your app to the App Store.

This module describes how Cocoa is organized and structured through such Objective-C language features as subclassing, categories, and protocols. Then some important built-in Cocoa object types are introduced.


This module presents Cocoa’s event-driven model of activity, along with its major design patterns and event-related features — notifications, delegation, data sources, target–action, the responder chain, and key–value observing. The module concludes with some words of wisdom about managing the barrage of events Cocoa will be throwing at you, and how to escape that barrage momentarily with delayed performance.

In this module, we will discuss about Cocoa memory management. This module will explain how memory management of reference types works. Then some special memory management situations are described: autorelease pools, retain cycles, notifications and timers, nib loading, and CFTypeRefs. The module will conclude with a discussion of Cocoa property memory management, and advice on how to debug memory management issues.

In this module, we will discuss about the question of how your objects are going to see and communicate with one another within the confines of the Cocoa-based world. It concludes with some advice about adhering to the model–view–controller architecture.
