Well, I did it: I finally finished something. No, it’s not my first iOS app (I wish), but rather a masters degree in Educational Technology Leadership. I started the degree back in the spring of 2012 and it sure feels good to be done. Now that I don’t have to worry about endless readings and an epic quota of mandatory discussion forum posts, I can focus my attention on learning to program iOS apps! Yesterday I began digging into AppCoda’s Beginning iOS 8 Programming with Swift and am on page 111. So far, everything has seemed comfortably familiar, so that’s encouraging. Even though I eventually want to develop games, I also want to have a thorough understanding of UIKit and get plenty of practice using Swift. I feel like this is a good start!
