One Day Builds


Expand Your Tools

With each additional app you build, you gain more experience with different techniques, design patterns, app architectures, UIElements and more. That's why the focus with our One Day Builds is to expose you to as many varied apps as possible.

It's only through coding and building more apps that you'll expand your pool of experience and toolset so that when it comes time to build your own custom app, you'll have a variety of skills to draw from. No one builds something from absolute scratch!

These One Day Builds are meant for students who have at least completed the iOS Foundations course (and preferably the iOS Databases course too).
