Have you ever wanted to develop an native iOS app with SAP Fiori’s look and feel? OpenSAP has a great course, SAP Fiori for iOS – Build Your First Native Mobile App, where you get to develop your first SAP fiori iOS application. The course walks you through step by step setting up for application development all the way to deployment.
The assignments and final exam for this course is now closed, but the course itself is free and open in self-paced mode where you still have access to all of the learning materials – training videos, hands-on exercises, and helpful self-tests after each unit.
I am new to SAP and Fiori, as my journey began as a web designer and developer, and starting my new career as a front-end Fiori developer, this was my first course that I completed. One of the things I have learned throughout my career is that when it comes to user experience things should be simple and easy to use and that is what Fiori is about as well as Apple, so to me it makes perfect sense that they would be used together. I also had never created an iOS app before which was a very interesting for me to learn more about Swift, the iOS programming language, as well as using Xcode to develop the app.
In the course you get to create an iOS shopping cart application with a supplied OData back-end that populates a list of products. The functionality of the app allows you to add and remove items from the shopping cart, show detail views of each product as well as sort and filter through the products.
If want to learn to build a quick iOS application using Swift and the Fiori design, then this course is perfect. A lot of the code for this course is given to you to be able to copy and paste, but I really recommend at the very least reading through the code or implementing it yourself, especially if your new to developing an iOS application.
