Lecture notes for Tuesday February 8

February 8, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Today, we study a multi-level navigation-based app. This session will be intense, so be prepared. Additionally, if there’s time, we will introduce Core Data.


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.


Coming up in DPS913 / APD601

Fri Feb 11 – Core Data introduction; nav-based app that uses a Core Data store

Tue Feb 15 – accessing the network, and using a web service


Example apps covered today


  • Nav Colors
  • Nav SCS
  • CD Simple (built during the lecture, and posted after)


A reminder… Download and study the “Events 4” app. It shows the events that happen, and the methods that get called, during the launch and lifetime of a nav-based app with a table view (and an array as a data source).
