Aw yiss! It’s app makin’ time. Fire up your Xcode, get your Swift hat on and get hacking with this game called “Add 1”.
In these videos you’ll be learning how to create a game for iOS with Swift. We’ll dive in Xcode, variables, working with input and output, optionals, using Interface Builder, all you need to get started with iPhone app coding.
The game we’ll create is called “Add 1”, and as far as I know it’s an invention of Daniel Kahneman. He’s the author of “Thinking Fast and Slow”, and used the game as an assignment in his research of cognitive strain.
The game is perfect for creating a small and simple app with enough functionality to make it a worthwhile learning experience. By the end of this mini course, you’ll know how to make a simple app and you’ll be able to challenge your friends to see who can make the most add-1’s in 60 seconds.
There’s not much to setup before you can follow this mini course, but you at least need:
1. A Mac
2. With Xcode 8 installed
3. An hour or so of time in total
4. No programming experience required!
