The navigation-based application style is introduced. Then, we will build on that by using a table view. You will learn a design and coding pattern that will make this style of app easy to create.


Prepare for today’s class

Show up on time. Be alert and mentally agile. Be prepared to learn.

If you wish, you can look at some of the introductory readings in the DPS913 Virtual Textbook.

And, you can go through the digital content linked below.
