Questions

Can I only use SwiftUI if I start a new app?

No. You can start using SwiftUI today within your existing UIKit applications. This course will teach you how.

Why should I learn SwiftUI?

  • Have you ever run into storyboard merge conflicts? 
  • Have you ever had to debug mysterious constraint conflicts? 
  • Are you still messing with content hugging and and content compression resistance priorities? 
These things no longer exist in SwiftUI. And these are only SOME of the benefits.

Can I really navigate from a UIViewController to a SwiftUI screen?

Yes! Not only will I show you a how to do it using a storyboard and with just code, I'll also walk you through how to pass data to the SwiftUI screen and back to the view controller.

SwiftUI layout is so different. Will it take me a long time to learn?

No, it won't. You will learn the 3 basic layout views that alone will enable you to build complex layouts.

Have you really created over 1,000 SwiftUI views?

Yes! I have exceeded well over 1,000 views since SwiftUI was first in beta back in 2019. 😃

Testimonials

Weekend Kickstarter was great and worth the $$$ as I'm so busy and just frantically started learning SwiftUI 🎯
Jim Fetters
It filled in a lot of holes that still existed regarding integrating the two frameworks. As a whole it showed that it is not that hard to integrate the SwiftUI framework into UIKit and vice versa.

Make the change to SwiftUI progressively by seeing how easy it is to create Views without storyboard.
Chris Parker
I loved that I learned how to integrate SwiftUI but using different approaches, storyboards and code.

This introduction will help you learn SwiftUI integrating it to your current projects, there is no need for a whole new SwiftUI project.
