Learn how to code making real Apple Watch apps using Swift and Xcode

What I want to build:

I want to create a full course to teach a novice (or indeed an experienced coder!) how to create Apple Watch apps using Swift. As with my other courses, this will start completely from scratch, showing you how to download Xcode and introduce you to programming basics, moving on quickly to making real apps and games, including location-based apps, bluetooth and chat apps.

I am the creator of The Complete Web Developer Course (the best-selling and best rated Udemy course ever) and The Complete iOS Developer Course - you can expect exactly the same level of quality and quantity from this course.

The course will cover all the aspects of the WatchKit SDK, released on 18th November, including glances, notifications, app architecture, APIs, interface elements, and more advanced topics.

The Apple Watch will be the big new platform of 2015, which projected sales of over 20 million. It’s a fantastic opportunity for developers to get in on the ground floor of a whole new ecosystem.

The full price of the course for non-backers will be $199 - the same as for the web and iOS development courses.

How is this course different to others?

  • Students will get full lifetime access (including video downloads) for a single one-off fee
  • The tutor is a qualified and experienced teacher, so is able to explain complex concepts clearly, as well as entertain along the way
  • The tutor has already produced two highly successful, popular and highly rated courses in web and app development
  • The course is project-based, so students will not just be learning dry programming concepts, but applying them immediately to make real apps

What do I get with the course?

I have a tendency to over-deliver. With the course you'll get:

  • Well over 20 hours of fun, practical, video lessons explaining from scratch how to make great and highly functional apps for Apple Watch.
  • Video guides on how to make a beautiful companion website to market your apps
  • One year's free web hosting on the unlimited Advanced Package, with my highly rated web hosting company, Eco Web Hosting to host your websites (worth $200)
  • A collection of over 1,000 graphical assets (worth $300) to make your apps look awesome.
  • A free copy of my book How To Make $10,000 While Learning To Code

Who is this for?

  • Anyone who wants to learn to code: Swift is a fantastic language to learn how to code with, and it enables you to make production-quality apps for the App Store using only free software. 
  • Anyone who wants to be an app developer: This will be a full course, just like my web and app developer. It will teach you how to make money from your apps as well as how to code.
  • Anyone who wants to understand how computers work: Learning to code is so much more than being able to make apps - knowing how computers work is the key to a hugely powerful world. 

Who am I?

Hi! I’m Rob. I have a degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University, and am a web and app developer based in Cambridge, UK. I was also a secondary school teacher for 10 years.

I am the creator of The Complete Web Developer Course (the best-selling and best rated Udemy course ever) and The Complete iOS Developer Course - you can expect exactly the same level of quality and quantity from this course.

Here's an example review:

"I'm only part way through this course and I can tell right away that it's a winner. I ran into some difficulty and asked Rob for help and he responded in literally, no time flat. I've been a Udemy member for quite sometime now and a true measure of a course's worth, is by it's the time it takes for the Instructor to get back to you. Its very thorough and superbly laid out. I literally can't wait to complete it now! Thanks, Rob."

Why am I doing a Kickstarter?

I was amazed by the success of my iOS Course Kickstarter, and loved working with people to develop the course content and get feedback on the videos in advance. Doing a Kickstarter this time round was a no-brainer for me!

When will I get access to the course?

Now that the Apple Watch SDK has been released, I will be working on the course over the next couple of months - my aim is to time the release of the course with the release of the Apple Watch itself, which is scheduled for 'early 2015'.

Risks and challenges

As before, there are relatively few risks here. I will not be spending your money up front, so in the very unlikely circumstances that I am unable to complete the course, I will refund everyone.

I also promise to refund anyone the £15 pledge if they do not think the course is fully awesome.
