Workshop: “Introduction to iOS Programming”

1 Leave a comment on paragraph 1 0 Recently, I attended the “Introduction to iOS Programming” workshop, led by Jeremy March from the CUNY Digital Fellows. I must say that, before this event, I had no knowledge of iOS or Android applications at all, so I found this overview of the workflow regarding digital apps very useful. Besides, the resources provided by Jeremy March and the Digital Fellows will surely be beneficial in the near future.

2 Leave a comment on paragraph 2 0 When it comes to the decision making process, first of all we need to ask ourselves what platform is the more adequate for our purposes. Web applications are hard to create for a variety of reasons: they are not easy to code, they have to support different screen sizes and their storage is also limited, since they can just be saved in the Cloud. If we compare iOS with Android—even though there is a wider spectrum on the latter—we were told that it makes more sense to lean towards the Apple Inc. operating system.

3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 We then were introduced to XCode; more precisely, to the languages and target platforms it may contain. Jeremy March illustrated how nowadays there is a transition from Objective-C to Swift with regard to iOS application language. Even though Objective-C provides more libraries to draw on, Swift includes many more modern features (safety and performance). Taking the platforms (iPhone and iPad) into account, that just depends on one’s personal project.

4 Leave a comment on paragraph 4 0 Once we learned some generic characteristics of XCode and iOS programing, we had the chance to explore and play around with a few sample projects. On the one hand, I did find myself somewhat lost with the directions at the beginning of the actual app creating process. It was a lot of brand new information and I believe that being familiar with certain programming knowledge would have been more helpful. On the other hand, though, I personally found the experience very enlightening. Overall, it was absolutely positive to take the first steps on this field with the help of the materials and resources provided. I definitely look forward to being part of more workshops connected to iOS programming next semester.

  • Welcome to Digital Praxis 2016-2017

    Encouraging students think about the impact advancements in digital technology have on the future of scholarship from the moment they enter the Graduate Center, the Digital Praxis Seminar is a year-long sequence of two three-credit courses that familiarize students with a variety of digital tools and methods through lectures offered by high-profile scholars and technologists, hands-on workshops, and collaborative projects. Students enrolled in the two-course sequence will complete their first year at the GC having been introduced to a broad range of ways to critically evaluate and incorporate digital technologies in their academic research and teaching. In addition, they will have explored a particular area of digital scholarship and/or pedagogy of interest to them, produced a digital project in collaboration with fellow students, and established a digital portfolio that can be used to display their work. The two connected three-credit courses will be offered during the Fall and Spring semesters as MALS classes for master’s students and Interdisciplinary Studies courses for doctoral students.

    The syllabus for the course can be found at
