I've always felt that designers should learn to write code and that developers should know the basics of great design.

Since 2011, over 350,000 people have learned how to design and build stunning iOS apps by reading Design Then Code tutorials.

In 2011, I released the first of several e-books on designing and developing apps on a new website, Design Then Code.

Since then, over 350,000 people have learned how to design and build iOS apps by reading Design Then Code tutorials.

About The Author

I'm Mike Rundle, a designer & software engineer. In 2008 I started learning Objective-C and the iPhone SDK and when the iPad launched two years later I had the #1 app in the U.S. App Store in the news category with Digital Post.

Since then I've designed and built a number of iOS apps that have also hit #1 in their category and have been featured by Apple throughout the App Store.

I've always felt that designers should learn to write code and that developers should know the basics of great design. Design Then Code is my way of trying to make that happen.
