Weekend learning: An ad-hoc way to add new arsenal - IOS Application development with iPhone App Bootcamp Udemy

Needless to say sometimes people are so much stressed that they want to come out of this so called "Work-Learn-zone" to "Fun-Learn-zone". Different people have different methodology of transition.
We work and learn but its inevitable to work with same enthusiasm on trite things. Yes, I get bored and believe me I have validated this with my friends - they have same traits.

Why not build something new, learn and have fun !! 

I decided to spent my weekends with something new learning, build and have fun with tech semantics. After browsing udemy I found a small and crisp tutorial for ios application development in swift programming language - The 10 Day iPhone App Bootcamp - NEW iOS 12 and Xcode 10.

The very best part of this video tutorial is, it does not have sample code - You come, learn and do yourself. Although it is 10 days bootcamp, after spending 2 Days of exhaustive session with Nick Walter I end-up with learning of Swift programming basic and developed 4 Small IOS applications 
Building application using swift programming language

Swift programming language is simple in terms of syntax and semantics. This IOS application development tutorial explained very well required Swift programming language and fundamentals of Xcode(Integrated development environment (IDE) for macOS) - prerequisite for IOS application development.

JokeBank App:

This application explained fundamental of Swift array and objects. It contains a list view to choose joke type and on click of this we end up with detailed view of joke. Below screenshot shows UI involved.

2. Navigation controller and tabular view of UI
3. How to use ViewController(or TableViewController) along the side of UI.

This app allows to select images from directory & camera and display images in tabular form with title. It also allows to delete images from home screen using swipe.

Learning highlights :
1. Saving Image in binary form in Core data entity - store image locally.
2. Interaction with camera and local directory to capture image.
cameraImageCollect(_ sender: Any) and directoryImageCollect(_ sender: Any)
3. How to use array of binary data of image and saving in core data. Collectable is entity
var allCollected = [Collectable]()
4. Convert a UIImage into a Data using UIImagePNGRepresentation and UIImageJPEGRepresentation.
collectable.image = UIImageJPEGRepresentation(data, 0.8)
5. Delete image and title from tabular UI using swipe.
if editingStyle == .delete context.delete(collectable)

Bitcoin Tracker App:

This is bitcoin price app tracker shows latest price in different currency. Its UI page application with refresh button which brings updated value of bitcoin by making HTTP GET call.

  5. Flutter is one of the top cross-platform framework for app development and allows us to build Android and iOS apps together. The overall development cost is reduced by using Flutter app development and it also provide ease to developers to develop cross-platform apps. Flutter is Google’s new open source technology for creating native Android and iOS apps with a single codebase. Unlike other popular solutions, Flutter is not a framework; it’s a complete SDK – software development kit – which already contains everything you will need to build cross-platform applications.

  6. Flutter Development Services help businesses and organizations to optimize their IT landscape with high-performing mobile apps. When compared to other hybrid frameworks, Flutter is robust and reactive with widgets and tools that allow the building and deployment of UI with animations and a single codebase that works for both iOS and Android platforms. Google Flutter is undoubtedly the most versatile mobile app development framework. The unmatched features of Flutter help businesses to expand their application development horizons. Flutter stays true to the word ‘writing once and running it everywhere’, such that application development on iOS and Android have become fairly easy with the revolutionary framework.

  7. Sales Force Automation Development is programming that streamlines the collection, analysis and distribution of data in a sales pipeline. The goal of SFA software is to get the right data to the right people at the right time, and reduce the number of administrative tasks that sales representatives and their managers have to perform manually. SFA software is used by various salespersons such as salespersons in B2B and B2C contexts, door-to-door salesmen, direct sellers, online sellers, etc. It is used by managers to track customers, manage sales pipelines, customize the offers, and generate reports.
