Learn From One Of The 1st iOS Developers In The World

Our instructor Matt, has 13 years of experience in iOS and created the world's first iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch apps. Now, he dedicates his time to recording courses for iOSBFree (pronounced "iOS Be Free").

In This Course

1. We discuss value & reference types and how they exhibit different behaviour. Reference types are instances of classes (objects) and value types refer to basic data types such as an Int, Double, String or a Struct (copied values stored in memory).

2. We write code in an Xcode Playground to test the behaviour of struct and class singletons. We learn the differences in memory management and explain some architectural principles we might be breaking.

Learning Objectives

· What is a value type
· What is a reference type
· The behaviour of a struct
· The behaviour of a class

Sample Code

Sample Code Is Always Included and attached to each video. You can download the same project used in each episode of the course.
