    Do your provide the source code for all your examples?

    Well done Sam, very inspiring to a community of designer/developers.

    Surprised to see all the requests for source - it's a big ask. I'm a beginner programmer and I'd hesitate to make posts about my code and progress because I'm not confident that I'm following best practice and wouldn't want to spread misinformation. There's generally a 100 ways to implement thing, and often the first way you learn how to do something isn't the best. Plus, going through the motions of piecing this stuff together is really how you learn.

      You wouldn't be spreading misinformation, if you did something wrong commenters can let you know, and this can in turn help others.

      I think as long as you present your work honestly (i.e. not saying that you're a ninja-rockstar-guru programmer) there's nothing wrong with sharing code, even if you're a beginner :)

    I have been wanting to learn IOS development with swift for the longest time where did you learn to code in swift?

      I think it's awesome you want to learn iOS development. I'd say just start. I wrote an article on Medium sharing some resources to get started learning Swift. Also keep in mind that what works for one person, might not work for another. You've may have to try multiple resources to find something you connect with. Just keep at it—you'll learn it.

      Thanks. Yes, I know the feeling. Sure. I wrote an article on Medium with some great resources to start learning Swift. The link is at the top of this page. Hope it helps you Evan.

    Very inspiring. I'm learning Android dev I've found that it's easier to design when I understand the limits with Motion Design.

      Thanks. I agree. When designing something to hand off to a developer, it definitely helps to know how challenging the design is to implement—especially if there's time constraints. Knowing this info can bring more understanding between the team. I think it's awesome you're making an effort to learn Android dev.

    Definitely thought this was going to be an ode to Taylor Swift.

    Posting this on January - Automatically adds this goal to my list for this year :) Just like any designer, at some point I started to feel like I have to learn coding on Swift as well. Thanks for inspiring!

    Awesome and very inspiring. I would be curious to know more about your methodology and how you chose which project to build? Thanks a lot

    Thanks for sharing this. Any chance you could share your answers to these questions, even if you're not 100% sure? These are the types of things I struggle with because they aren't really explained in books:

    • Why write a function?
    • What can I make with a for loop?
    • What’s the use case of an if statement?

    Good job Sam, I think practice is the best option for learning something new. But I plan to record some video tutorials about iOS Development. Do you mind if I pick some of your awesome projects and make screencasts about these in order to teach people how to develop these various apps?

    Would be nice to be able to change the order so that I can look at your progress from Project 1 to 40, rather than 40 to 1. Nice work though, would love to have the time to do something like this

    BTW, HTML and CSS aren't scripting languages, they are markup and styling languages, respectively

    Great Website & Great Idea!I love you the way of making it like 'Daily UI'!

    You can also see my project——MTSwiftLearning (with source code)

    I began to learn swift since I bought some Udemy courses for start.Now I'm learning how to package my code & make some port for others to use.

    Had sent an email to you. Can we study together?
