Advanced iOS 11: Mastering Push Notifications

Everything you could ever want to know about push notifications for iOS 11 in Swift

Advanced iOS 11: Mastering Push Notifications

This course will take you on a deep dive into push notifications. So many courses teach the bare bones minimum - but there is so much more to know in order to build systems that are actually useful, effective, and that can reach users in the right way.

What You Will Learn

You'll start by learning the easiest form of notifications - Local Notifications. These type of notifications don't require a server, and are a quick way to reach users and deliver messages and content.

After that, you will learn how to work with iOS's native CloudKit. Not only will you learn how to build out a robust push notification system, but you take advantage of some amazing CloudKit APIs and work with both silent & visible notifications.

After CloudKit, you'll learn how to work with Firebase Cloud Messaging. Firebase is a powerful suite of tools that helps you build robust, scalable, mobile applications. You'll learn how to work with CloudFunctions and how to send both local and remote notifications for both iOS & Android.

Then you'll learn AWS. AWS can be super confusing. We break it down super simple and help you build a push notification system on top of AWS that can scale to millions of users.

Lastly, we'll jump on the hot new Vapor tool. Vapor lets you write server-side applications all in Swift. You'll build your OWN server to deliver push notifications - and you'll do it all in Swift. So not only are you learning push, but full stack application development!
