In these materials, you'll learn about many of the features and productivity tools available in AppCode IDE. Examples are navigation, editing, inspections, live templates, refactorings, tools like CocoaPods and the REST client and many more things. It's virtually impossible to cover every option and feature in AppCode, but we're providing a number of practical exercises on how we can do our daily work as an OS X or iOS developer.
We'll also cover a vast amount of keyboard shortcuts to make working with AppCode more efficient. Other IntelliJ-based IDE's use the same keyboard shortcuts, so if you know how to work with AppCode, you'll know how to work with IntelliJ IDEA, WebStorm, PhpStorm, RubyMine, PyCharm and more. The keymap is included in the workshop download.
This workshop is self-paced, meaning you can work your way through the exercises on your own, whenever and wherever you want. Exercises come as an AppCode project in which every file is a new exercise that may contain code and tips to get things done.
