I want to be able to design and develop Native iOS apps - the way Apple recommends. I decided to start spending time studying and working with Swift every single day in my quest.
I started this journey by purchasing a Swift course on Oct 25th, I've spent an hour or more everyday thus far working through the lessons. Six days down, ninety four to go!
I have worked with Ionic exclusively over the last few years to build mobile apps. I have published over 10 Ionic apps. While I have always been curious about how to build iOS apps with Swift, I have never taken the time to explore the language.
What pushed me to this point is my desire to create Capacitor plugins for Ionic apps. Since I want to be able to make my own plugins I decided to learn Swift first, then do a similar 100 day sprint to learn Java or Kotlin so I can learn how to build native Android apps.
My hundred days of Swift will be complete on Feb 2nd 2021 - I am super excited to look back to see how much I learned over the 100 days once I get there.
In my next post I'll talk about what I have learned and my experience once the first full week is behind me.
