New Course: iOS Design Patterns

4 mins

Have you picked up so much wonderful code that you’re overwhelmed and don’t know how to keep it all tidily organized in your projects? Don’t worry if so! It’s a common problem visitors develop. :]

Or do you feel like you’re always doing the same things over and over? Always “reinventing the wheel”?

If you’re looking for help solving these issues, today is your luck day!

I’m proud to announce the release of my brand new, highly-anticipated course, iOS Design Patterns, ready for Swift 3 & iOS 10!

In this 11-part course, you’ll be introduced to design patterns that are specifically tailored for use with iOS. You’ll start by learning how best to set your projects up, and then jump right in to using design patterns that include:

  • MVC-N and MVVM
  • Multicast Closure Delegate
  • Visitor
  • much more!

Let’s take a peek at what’s inside.


Video 1: Introduction (Free!) You’ll be introduced to “iOS design patterns” in this video, including what design patterns are and how they’re useful.

Project Setup

Video 2: Project Setup Learn two ways to structure your project for design patterns: “grouping by function” and “grouping by type.” You’ll also learn which to use depending on your project.


Video 3: MVC-N In this video, learn about Model-View-Controller (MVC) and the dreaded massive view controller problem. Oh my! Fortunately, Model-View-Controller-Networking (MVC-N) is here to save the day.


Video 4: MVVM Learn about Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) in this video, which you’ll use to further combat massive view controllers.

Multicast Closure Delegate

Video 5: Multicast Closure Delegate (Free!) Learn about the multicast closure delegate pattern, a spin-off pattern from delegate. This is in preparation for performing auto re-login authentication in the next video.


Video 6: Auto Re-Login Authentication Use the multicast closure delegate pattern from the previous video to create an auto re-login authentication client.


Video 7: Memento Learn about the memento pattern, which allows an object’s state to be saved and restored later.

Composition over Inheritance

Video 8: Composition Over Inheritance Learn about “composition over inheritance” in this video, a design principle used by most design patterns.

Container Views

Video 9: Container Views In this video, you’ll learn how to DRY out your storyboard UIs using container views. This is in preparation for the next video, where you’ll use this to implement the visitor pattern.


Video 10: Visitor Learn the visitor design pattern, which you’ll use to eliminate view controllers’ code duplication logic. This video builds on the previous one, which eliminated storyboard UI duplication.


Video 11: Conclusion In this video, you’ll review what you learned in this “iOS Design patterns” video tutorial series and find out where to go from here.
