comments are from 2 years ago. should I just move to a different course? This series seems like it was made quite awhile ago. are there any newer courses that have more relevant things for todays world?

Hey Aaron,

In my opinion, if you have the time, I would stick with the course. Yes, it is an older course, but if your are interested in Objective-C (and iOS coding in general), I would finish it. There is much too learn here. and not much has changed with the language over the past couple of years, and even though Xcode has changed over the same time frame, I don't foresee huge problems with being able to following along successfully.

So, aside from the UX changes you will encounter, I believe that what you learn will only be of value to you as you move forward with iOS programming and coding in general.

Keep Coding! :) :dizzy:

thanks so much! because of you I will persevere and get it done!

i have a question i am going to push though the course do you think i can create this same app in swift 3 using the same concepts of video

I never actually could finish this because of the time wasting finding all the new libraries I moved on to something newer. Is it possible? yes. Did I consider it worth my time looking at deprecated code? no.

What was the newer thing you moved on to?

I just stuck with the tracks being beginner/intermediate iOS development. I learned good stuff and now I have my first job and I know when I start the iOS part it will pay off.
