Lesson 4: Table Views

In this lesson we'll dig into Table Views, a cornerstone of UIKit.  We'll identify essential delegate and datasource methods, review Swift Collections, and discuss how UITableViews take advantage of reusable cells. After implementing an example table, we'll finish up with a Challenge App, an extension of the Roshambo app from Lesson 2.

Lesson 5: Navigation

This lesson focuses on Navigation, which is used when presenting a hierarchy of views from side-to-side. We'll talk about how navigation stacks function in UIKit, review Swift classes and structs, and implement a navigation structure for an example app. At the end of the lesson students will implement navigation controllers on their own in three different scenarios.

Final Project: MemeMe

MemeMe is a meme-generating app that enables a user to attach a caption to a picture from their phone. After adding text to an image chosen from the Photo Album or Camera, the user can share it with friends. MemeMe also temporarily stores sent memes which users can browse in a table or a grid.

MemeMe covers many of the UI components covered in the previous lessons and found in essentially every app. Check out the complete project description and download the detailed spec.
