    Online learning site Udemy, which offers classes on a wide range of subjects including programming, photography, Photoshop, writing, and more, is today debuting a new iOS 9 Developer Course that aims to teach students how to use Xcode 7 and Swift 2 to make iOS apps.

    Designed to be a comprehensive tutorial on app development for iOS 9 for complete beginners, the course includes a total of 28 hours of video lectures that cover topics like the Swift language, Xcode, SpriteKit, Inputs, Buttons, Reactive Interfaces, Navigation, Storage, Live Content, Images, Accelerometers, Motion Feedback, iAds, In-App purchases, and tons more.

    Udemy promises that by the end of the course, students will be able to build "clones" of popular apps like Uber, Tinder, Flappy Bird, and Instagram. The program also includes unlimited web hosting for 1 year, an eBook on earning money while learning to code, and over 1,000 graphic assets to use within apps.
    Udemy's iOS 9 course is the followup to the iOS 8 course, which saw more than 100,000 students enroll and received a 4.8/5 rating from attendees. The course continues to be taught by Rob Percival, who taught the iOS 8 course.

    Udemy's Complete iOS 9 Developer Course is priced at $199, but Udemy has agreed to give interested MacRumors readers a significant discount, cutting the price by 87 percent. When checking out, MacRumors readers can enter the code MACRUMORS to get access to the course for $24. The deal will last until the end of the day on August 4.

    Does anyone know anything about these guys? That's pretty tempting if it's actually any good.

    code has expired already? Seems strange to expire within 7 minutes of posting the article. I would have signed up immediately. Now I just have to unsubscribe from Udemy emails. MacRumors...can you help us out?

    coupon code 'MACRUMORS' appears to already be expired, and it doesn't appear to be August 4th yet according to my calendar.

    Okay, the coupon code is updated and working. For those of you who got the expired message, give it another try now.

    Considering their normal pricing for iOS 8 is only £7.99 one cannot help but wonder if this a great deal or a great marketing trick...

    Well, I just bought it with another promo code for €11... So I don't think anyone pays the full price.

    Interesting...doesn't Apple have a Non-Disclosure Agreement that prohibits people from showing off beta software (e.g. Xcode 7)? I'm glad this course exists, but I'm curious how this gets around that limitation. Even Team Treehouse makes the claim that they can't show Xcode 7 in their videos because of the agreement.

    I went through the OS 8 course with this guy, he's pretty good and the course then was very thorough. It goes from start to finish, to the point of actually walking you through how to submit an app to the store.

    The macrumors deal is not the best deal out there. I got it for $10. But yes, never pay the full price at Udemy :)

    For an even deeper discount, use coupon code TECHB10. Costs only $10 now. I think this code is only good for Jul 30.
