Hey everyone. Welcome to my blog. This is the first entry in this blog and hopefully, I’ll write here every day. Today, I start learning Swift and Xcode which is the programming language and the application required to create iOS apps. I will document all my learnings here. The goal of this blog is primarily for me to keep track of my progress, but also for others to maybe read and learn something new. I hope to inspire others to learn iOS app development too.

Lesson 1

So the first step is to download Xcode. Then, assuming you have an Apple ID and a MacBook, you are good to go. So, in order to learn how to make an iOS app, you must first think of an app idea and create an app while learning how to do so. Merely reading this guide or any book won’t teach you how to create your app, actually making it is what teaches you the best. So think of three ideas and note them down. They don’t have to be revolutionary. Just some simple ideas for an app that could help you or someone else. Preferably think of an app that would solve a personal problem so that you would be driven to create the app and also because it would at least be helpful to you even if you decide not to upload it to the app store.

That’s about it for the first lesson. I know it doesn’t seem like much but trust me, you should really spend a lot of time thinking about your app idea so that you can create something you could be proud of.
