iOS 14 & Swift 5: Financial App with Stock APIs & Unit Tests

Requirements

  • 1 year iOS experience.
  • Basic competency with Swift & Xcode.

Welcome to the iOS 14 & Swift 5: Financial App with Stock APIs & Unit Tests course!

This course is designed for iOS developers with at least 1 year iOS experience who want to learn to work with Stocks APIs to build a finance investment app. You will learn to make Restful API calls to Alpha Vantage, a stock API provider to query asset prices and other financial data to build a dollar cost averaging calculator to project potential returns for financial assets like stocks, shares, equities & ETFs.

You will also learn how to write unit tests to ensure that the app logic is maintained and protected from erroneous change. This is an important skill to master if you are working in a huge team and with a high tier tech company.

We will also build this app using a reactive architecture where states are observed using the Combine framework with Swift 5 and Xcode 12. You will learn how to structure clean code that is both reusable, extensible and highly readable.
