Prerequisites and Requirements

Enrolling in this course assumes you have prior iOS development experience. The material won't cover the technical aspects of app development, instead serving as a guide through the process of building an app. Specifically, the course was built to support the final project in the iOS Developer Nanodegree and assumes mastery of the concepts taught in the following courses:

Please also note that submitting to the App Store, or loading your app to a physical device requires enrollment in the iOS Developer Program.

See the Technology Requirements for using Udacity.

Why Take This Course

Building an app from scratch is a time-consuming, but rewarding process. Don't let the length of the lessons fool you!

This course is unique in that you'll spend most of your time outside of the classroom, working on your app. We'll point you in the right direction to find resources and make progress, but it will be up to you to implement.

By the end of the course, you'll have built you very own custom iOS app, and have the confidence to do it all again.
