I have spend the better part of a year stumbling through learning how to code. What I have learned is that there is a ton of resources out there, a lot of them good, and some bad. I cam from a non technical background in finance and what I quickly found was that courses seemed to be over my head, or they were so basic that it didn’t really teach you anything. I’ve taken courses where I code along someone and build actual apps. They were great and boosted my confidence while I was watching/coding- but then I could finish and retained almost nothing.
What I like about Marks course is that he is dedicated to making sure that his students know the core principals of programming before jumping more in depth and actually building things.
Another huge advantage from learning with Mark is that he continues to provide outside of course learning resources and materials. This is a huge unfair advantage that he brings. In most courses you learn what they teach and are on your own for direction on finding outside resources to get more in-depth knowledge. Mark tells you where to find outside information and has a community of TAs and students to help you get through the things that you do not fully understand.
I like to contrast his enthusiasm and teaching skills with what I have seen elsewhere. I negotiated my way into sitting in on week one of a local iOS bootcamp. What I found there was that it is great to be around other motivated learners- BUT- the teachers and mentors were not fully invested in you, and it was really sink or swim. The $10,000 + fee was basically a guided 4 hours a day code along and then pretty much self learning with others.
Mark and Devslopes not only give you super up to date content, they also bring to you into a community of students, teachers(TAS), and people that enjoy spending their time making sure you get out of the course what you put in.
This wont be easy and no one is going to do the work for you, but if you bring it you will get a learning experience worth thousands….and you will actually leave the course with long term skills and maybe even a portfolio of apps.
I have only begun to dig into Marks courses, but for the small price and versus what else is out there, you would be foolish for not strongly considering this course if you’re serious about learning iOS.

Welcome to the world’s most comprehensive course on iOS development. This course is designed like an in-person coding bootcamp to give you the most amount of content and help with the least amount of cost.
Here are some of the things you’ll be able to do after taking this course:
If you are absolutely new to programming you should start at the beginning of the course and go to the end.
I’ve designed this course to take you down a guided learning path. Lectures are not broken out by specific topics. You build apps and then learn a ton of principles within those apps. So don’t skip around!
If you already know Swift then you can skip the Swift section since the changes between Swift 2 and Swift 3 are minor.
Swift 3 broke a lot of things in Swift 2. We cover those changes periodically throughout the course so don’t worry about watching Swift videos again if you already know Swift.
If you are a student of iOS 9: From Beginner to Paid Professional then feel free to start taking this iOS 10 course.
Keep in mind that this iOS 10 course has a bunch of new apps. So there is a HUGE benefit to ALSO go through the iOS 9 course – or you’ll miss out on awesome content.
