I have been developing for 5 years on iOS platform and around 4 years with Parse API. I currently have 14 major apps running on the Parse platform (and 10 more that are just basic apps). Parse is my go-to solution for adding backends to my apps because of its simplicity. I have also used other platforms such as Firebase and AWS Mobile Hub for adding BAAS to my apps but Parse is a lot more intuitive and easier to use.

I am a freelancer, I have developed over 100 apps in my career. I am passionate about teaching and I enjoy coding :)


This course assumes that you have some iOS development skills, around 3-6 months of programming in Swift and the ability to develop a basic table view app. The course is NOT absolute beginner who hasn’t programmed in Swift. I explained in details all the steps in the course however a basic understanding of iOS development and some swift programming skills are required. If you want to develop cloud-based app then this course is for you.
