Apple's SwiftUI tutorial series

When Apple released its own SwiftUI tutorial I decided to give it a try. This was not a simple tutorial introducing the basics of SwiftUI, but a more overarching training to know how to create a real application in SwiftUI. From custom UI to sharing data between and interacting with frameworks.

You can find all 13 videos on my Apple's SwiftUI tutorial playlist. You can start watching the first one to know what was my purpose with these videos.

When I started doing the tutorials, I already knew SwiftUI. The framework is still young, so I'm by no means an expert, but I've been working with it since its release. So I was not going with the mentality of learning how to build an app. My intention was to take an analytical approach at the tutorial to know how good it is and if I would recommend it to others.

During the series, you can see me complain about some details and praise other decisions. I'm well aware this is not entertaining for everybody, but I find this kind of content very interesting, so it's what I want to create. I find really enjoyable watch other people's mental process, it’s the best way to learn!

If you are even just a bit like me, I recommend you watching the videos, but if you just want to know how good are the tutorials from my point of view, you can just skip to the last episode.

Overall, I'm thrilled with the series, specially because now I have a better idea of what to answer when people ask me what to do to learn SwiftUI.
