New Course: Getting Started With WatchKit

If you're an iOS developer, you now have the chance to target a brand new platform: Apple Watch. As with any new platform there are new concepts to learn. In Getting Started With WatchKit, you'll go through the process of creating a real WatchKit app and learn a number of new features and technologies.

What You'll Learn

Tuts+ instructor Derek Jensen will help you create an Apple Watch app from the ground up, using WatchKit and taking advantage of Glances, Notification, and a number of other very cool features of WatchKit. Not sure what these things are? Don't worry, he'll cover it all step by step.

Here are some free videos from the course, as a preview of what you'll learn:

Creating Your First WatchKit App

When you’re starting to learn any new technology, it always pays to get a lay of the land. This video covers the process of creating a new WatchKit app and explains the basic layout of an app.

Types of Interfaces

When it comes to creating WatchKit apps, there are three main categories of interface: glance, main, and notification. In this video you'll get a quick explanation of what they are and how they work.

Creating the Glance Interface

In this video you'll take a closer look at the glance interface of a WatchKit app, and create your first glance. In general, a glance interface is for just that, a glance. It is meant for the user to quickly look at to get some information, and it is not so much concerned with user interaction.
