Flatiron Day 19: Debugger Day

Posted by Flatiron School  /  October 24, 2013

The following is a guest post by Dulio Denis and originally appeared on his blog. Dulio is currently in the iOS-000 class at The Flatiron School. You can follow him on Twitter here.

Today, we had a Core Data Morning Assessment. Specifically, a project where we had to add NSFetchedResultsController and its delegate in order to fill a TableView with data.  We also practiced how to access our AppDelegate from other parts of the App. After reviewing the code kata we went into Morning Lecture which focused on the Xcode Debugger.  We ended the lecture with a quick CocoaPods install to kick-off our second of three units of the course: 3rd party APIs and SDKs.  Tomorrow, we’ll dive into Unit Two: Building Real World Apps with CocoaPods after having installed it today.  

We then took our third weekly 2 hour quiz which had the following six parts:

  • Location

  • Designing UIs

  • NSFetchedResultsController and Core Data

  • Collections

  • Git

  • General

We reviewed the quiz answers today and then went into a Debugging Lab by taking a broken fortune cookie app and going through and fixing its issues through debugging.

Finally, at the end of the day at 7pm we held our iOS Dev NYC Meetup where Das presented iOS 7 View Transitions.
