Wondering where to get started?
I’ve set up the following tutorials which will take you from writing a simple backend in Java (Spring Boot) where you’ll develop your first REST API, all the way to consuming these API’s in a simple iOS application using Swift 3.
With that being said, if you have no interest in developing a backend and just wanted some code for HTTP Requests written in Swift 3, feel free to skip through and check out those tutorials as they can be easily adapted to consume any API.
Each video will correspond to a part of one of the following tutorials (for those who prefer written format).
Java/Spring Boot Tutorials
|Part 1: Setting up your MySQL Database||Part 1: Setting up our XCode/Swift 3 Project (To Consume our REST API)|
|Part 2: Setting Up Spring Boot and Hibernate in Eclipse||Part 2: GET Request with Swift 3 (wihout Alamofire)|
|Part 3: Configuring Your Database to Work With Spring Boot||Part 3: Display JSON Data Inside of a UITableView|

Library of the Month
I’ll be putting up a new library that I think is worth mentioning every month alongside some code examples to get you up and running. If you have any suggestions, feel free to send those along.
Here are a few blog categories I’ll try to keep consistent.
|Tips||All related coding tips and personal experiences.|
|Library Of The Month
||Past libraries of the month.|
This has received a lot more interest than I thought which is encouraging! If you have any additional suggestions or maybe there is a topic you’d like to learn more about or if there was a section in one of the tutorials I skipped over too quickly please leave a comment below – I’d love to help out!
