Throughout this course, students build mobile apps for Apple’s mobile devices using the language and tools of professionals – Swift and Xcode. Students experience an authentic workplace environment applying the skills of problem-solving, collaboration, and communication to industry best practices, like paired programming and rapid iteration. Students apply the same development cycle as those in the workplace, which means students build an app, analyze errors in code, and adjust to solve for problems. To do this well, they must develop their resourcefulness and collaborate with their peers. Upon completion, students can sit for their App Development with Swift, Level 1 certification from Certiport and/or can opt to sit for the AP Computer Science Principles exam.
This course can also award CSC246 Mobile App Development through AIMS Community College for students who complete the concurrent enrollment paperwork. Learners will be given more specific information at the beginning of the semester they are taking the Coding Pathway.
