iOS Workshop Series

Workshop Introduction

Students are welcome to join our workshops in the coming semesters to learn iOS App development with Swift. After completing the courses, you will become our EdUHK ambassadors to teach App development in local primary and secondary schools. The details are as follows:

Application Requirements
Priority is given to students with higher GPA
Priority is given to senior year students

Expectation of Students and Their Responsibility
Upon completion, students will become our EdUHK ambassadors to promote coding education and programming literacy in the local community.

Workshop Details

1. Workshop on Introduction to Swift Playground

Tutor: LTTC staff
Duration: 6 hours (2 sessions x 3 hours)
Quota: 40 students
Date: 26 February 2019 (Tuesday)
Time: 10:00 – 13:00 and 14:00 – 17:00
Venue: Computer and 3D Printing Room (E-P-12)
Enrollment: https://uslinux.eduhk.hk/enroll/course1.php3?groupid=LTTC322
The workshop is intended for beginners without any programming knowledge. “Swift Playgrounds” is an iPad app for learning Swift language. Given different scenarios, learners are expected to convert the in-game puzzles into executable lines of Swift codes. From basics to more in-depth, the app covers fundamental topics of Swift programming language features. In the workshop, some computational skills, such as variables, functions, logic flow control and arrays, will be presented to participants.

Xcode playground is an interactive environment where Swift codes can be entered and executed with the results appearing in real-time. This workshop covers more hardcore parts of Swift language and is structured by introducing Swift-style programming concepts such as variables, functions, flow controls, scoping, types and usage of development kits. In the latter part, some practical topics are selected, learners can follow step-by-step to achieve some simple applications by Xcode Playground.  It will become increasingly useful when moving on to more advanced areas of iOS development after the basics of Swift from this workshop.

 


2. Workshop on Introduction to iOS Apps Development with Swift

Tutor: LTTC staff
Duration: 6 hours (2 sessions x 3 hours)
Quota: 40 students
Date: 28 February 2019 (Thursday)
Time: 10:00 – 13:00 and 14:00 – 17:00
Venue: Computer and 3D Printing Room (E-P-12)
Enrollment: https://uslinux.eduhk.hk/enroll/course1.php3?groupid=LTTC322
In this iOS Apps development workshop, students will learn how to make Digital Counter and Digital Clock apps with Apple’s Xcode and Swift programming language. Students will be able to follow along with the step-by-step instructions and understand how a mobile app is developed. Through the workshop, students will learn and experience stage-by-stage from the elementary and intuitive concepts of programming to real coding practices of Swift programming and finally consolidate and apply some basic syntaxes and coding skills in the actual iOS Apps development in Xcode.

In this workshop, participating students are expected to experience more about the design philosophy, concepts of each building block, the flow charts for each blocks, the real codes in Swift language and debugging and modifications rather than just following and typing the codes.
