    Thanks, Jonathan!

    Our lead instructor Chris Slowik (who previously managed CreativeDash) did this exact journey. Inspired by that, he's put together five Swift courses for designers. Start with our completely free course "Xcode for Designers." It's 21 episodes and only ~90 minutes.

      Hi Scott.. You say "Start with our completely free course "Xcode for Designers."

      When I go to the website, there doesn't seem to be an order to the 37 courses... If I start with Xcode for Designers - should I then progress through the other 16 courses in any particular order?

        Great question. The "Courses" is a catch-all rollup; we sort by recency. If you're interested in a particular topic, that's the best way to browse — take "Swift," for instance. You'll see courses at the top and the most recent episodes. Any course that appears there has a Swift-related episode in it.

        LMK if I can help out in any other way!

      Clicked this link to recommend this exact course. It really helped me understand the basics and get going, and I am really close to launching my first app. Chris is also a nice guy was happy to answer questions I had about the course on Twitter. this is great starting point, and from there google and stack overflow are your friend, don't be afraid to ask questions. Raywunderlich.com also has some pretty solid tutorials, complete with memes.

      My number one recommendation: On iOS, go Swift. It's friendly.

      For backend, Firebase will make your dreams come true - once you can figure it out.

      Good luck!
