Week 11 & 12 Summary

Week 11

Crunched for time.

There is barely any time to blog during project mode. It’s a long 2 week sprint and our team still has a lot to get done. It’s frustrating because everyone on our team is new to this, but we are learning so much. There is no better way to learn about effective design pattern and features in iOS than devoting 3 weeks time to develop and app that you care about. Time is limited so learning new concepts quickly is not an option. I love the experience, but I can’t wait for this project to be over so that I can reflect on my personal growth here.

Week 9 & 10 at Flatiron School.

Week 9

Traveler App

Week 9 is the start of project mode at the Flatiron School, and that entails developing an app of choice for 3 straight weeks with 3 other classmates. We sort of had a choice with what we are going to make; the deal is each team submits three ideas to our instructors so that they get the final word on what project to pursue. They, of course, have a better handle as to what work is viable and challenging enough for our 3 weeks time.

How to utilize Nibs/ Xibs for reusable views in Objective-C

For my group’s final project here at The Flatiron School, we’re making an app that connects travelers with locals who offer personalized, authentic tours of their city. You can think of it like an AirBnB app in that our app serves as a marketplace for users to present and book tours.
