Welcome to DogGram! This course is designed to cover everything you need to be able to CREATE YOUR OWN SOCIAL NETWORKING APP from scratch.

In the first section of the course, we will focus on building the front-end of the app. We will use SwiftUI to create 15+ screens, set up the navigation, and add beautiful animations to the app.

In the second section, we will focus on adding the back-end to our app. We will connect DogGram to Google Firebase and set up a live database. We will allow users to sign in, create accounts, customize their profiles, and then upload/download posts in real time.

This will be a complete app from start to finish!

We will begin with a blank Xcode project and build the entire app together, writing 100% in Swift. This is NOT a template course where we build screens that just look good! We are building a fully functioning app, where real people can actually sign in, create accounts, and upload photos. Users will be able to like, comment, share, and report each other’s posts in REAL TIME!

Thanks for checking out the DogGram course! This course is a complete and well-rounded course that is perfect for anyone who wants to build their own app from scratch. In this course, we DO NOT cut corners and we take extra precautions to code like professional developers would – as if this would actually be used in the App Store! The course is GREAT FOR ALL SKILL LEVELS, although a very basic understanding of Swift is preferred. During the videos, I will be explaining (as simply as I can) what we are doing and why we are doing it. It’s my goal to have you comprehend and not just copy.

So welcome to DogGram, GET EXCITED, and I’ll see you in the next video!
