From Zero to Mobile Developer in 40 Minutes
Rate this quickstart
Are you an experienced non-mobile developer interested in writing your first iOS app? Or maybe a mobile developer wondering how to enhance your app or simplify your code using Realm and SwiftUI?
I start with a brief tour of the anatomy of a mobile app—covering both the backend and frontend components.
The bulk of the tutorial is devoted to a hands-on demonstration of building a simple chat app. The app lets users open a chatroom of their choice. Once in a chat room, users can share messages with other members.
While the app is simple, it solves some complex distributed data issues, with real-time syncing of data between your backend database and your mobile apps. Realm is also available for other platforms, such as Android, so the same back end and data can be shared with all versions of your app.
