iOS App Development Course

If you want to learn a new skill, take up a hobby or even change your career, then perhaps learning mobile app development will interest you. We’ll soon be running a free iOS App Development Course open to all residents in Wixams and neighbouring villages and will be held weekly in the evening in Lakeview Village Hall.


App development is a huge subject so we’ll be covering all the topics needed to get you started and the know-how to take it further if you wish.

Some of the topics we will cover:

  • Introduction to the Swift programming language
  • More programming techniques
  • Introduction to Xcode (the tool used for building iOS apps)
  • Building user interfaces
  • Downloading content from the internet and displaying it
  • Saving data
  • Using libraries to enrich your app
  • Debugging (finding & fixing bugs)
  • Introduction to Android development

Dates and Times

This course has been postponed due to the current pandemic but will likely take place on Thursdays from 7 pm until 9 pm and will be 12 weeks long.

Entry Requirements

To take part in this course you must be at least 14 years of age and have a Mac laptop you can bring to the course and use in your own time. Not everyone has a Mac but unfortunately this is a must for iOS development to run Xcode.

Experience in programming is not essential but will be helpful. If you have no programming experience you might be asked to do some extra learning in your own time, we can recommend some videos which will help.

Introductory Session

We’ll be running an introductory session for this course on Thursday 25th November in the Swan Room at Lakeview Village Hall. The evening will start with a general overview of some programming and app development in Swift, followed by a Q&A session.

If you’re not sure if this course is right for you then please do come along to that session.
