    You guys should try to isolate the issue and fix it sometimes rather than starting from scratch. It would get impractical when you start over when you have tons of code. Part of your coding journey should be learning to debug
    :P

    Andrew, my best advice is to make sure that your outlets and IBActions are good and then look for typos. When you’re letting an IDE do autocompletion, it’s very easy to call a method that looks alot like what you intended, but may have a slightly different name or take slightly different parameters.

    I haven't deleted everything yet, so I'm definitely gonna try converting instead of restarting first. I'm talking about adding the UIImage for the person's icon photo, and the labels for their name and student/teacher status.

    Like, I got this weird thing going on where my old cells are underneath my new custom cells, which only show up when you click on the cell. And then the label and UIImage just show up on top of the existing text from the old cells.

    Hi Andrew, that makes me wonder - have you got your cell identified as being an instance of teh Custom Class PersonTableViewCell yet instead of a plain UITableViewCell in its Identity Inspector? That might be a source of schizophrenia. As you say, you haven’t made all your changes yet, so you’re in kind of a transition state if you try to run.

    @AMPotter
    I just did that and got all my outlets connected, yeah. Now I'm proofreading my view controller's code to make sure I'm not missing any changes I need to make.

    @cwnidog
    Cool, just the way to do it. BTW - testing and debugging was what I always got the biggest charge out of. It’s a reall pain in the nether regions, but when you’ve got it beaten, it gives areal sense of accomplishment.
    Andrew Michael Potter
    @AMPotter
    Definitely! I'm getting closer. Having the sample code helps, since I felt like the last class went a bit fast for me.
    But now I'm seeing how things are connecting a bit better.
    John Leonard
    @cwnidog
    Don’t feel strange - they all went a bit fast for me. But I was almost always able to figure it out after reading the slides a second time and paying attention to what I was doing with the sample code. But I remember missing one vital detail on the storyboard and Brad had to show me just what he did. The storyboard doesn’t leave much in the way of tracks.

    Tuan and I are at Code Fellows if you need help. You gotta find us though!

    @AMPotter
    Are you guys upstairs?
    Kevin Pham
    @kpham13
    Yes, we’re upstairs in the conference room. Just come grab us if you need help.

    Tuan and Kevin were epic!! Thank you for the help!!
    Kevin Pham
    @kpham13
    No problem. I'll be extremely busy up til next Wednesday, so if you need any help, just post it in the Gitter. Others may have the same problem too!

    Hey guys, just posted an announcement in the Canvas about what topics to focus on for the accelerator application process. Here is that list: View Controllers
    Table Views
    Delegation and Protocols
    Arrays
    prepareForSegue
    Passing data between View Controllers

    Got it - thanks.

    Here’s a quick tip for your future into coding. I’ve noticed early off, that I assumed the TAs and instructors knew what I was talking about and the problem I faced, and that made getting help more difficult.
    Asking good questions:
    0a. Attempt the problem
    0b. Google it
    0c. If it takes you longer than 30-60 minutes, ask for help.
    1. Explain the project and what it does
    2. What is the expected outcome.
    3. What is the unexpected behavior.
    4. Where is the error, #line (if applicable)
    Good luck all!

    ^great advice kevin!
    Kevin Pham
    @kpham13
    Use the same approach if you ever dare post a question on Stack Overflow. I don’t think anyone would ever bash you for asking good questions, you’ll get thrashed for asking poor questions, or they’ll constantly ask you to clarify.
    Help us help you ;)

    Shameless plug, but Skater Brad is on the App Store :)

    On udemy looking for an intermediat iOS8 tutorial. Interesting that they seem to think that I’m trying to design a culvert. I don’t need much software instruction to design a culvert.
    As I scroll through their offereings further, I see they’re offering a way to develop 6-pack abs, as well.
    bradleypj823
    @bradleypj823
    haha yeah they have a pretty wide range of courses
    Kevin Pham
    @kpham13
    If you wanna learn, I’m offering tutoring services for lunches
    No-Chopstix prz
    or Taco Taijin
    El Camion preferred :)
    Kevin Pham
    @kpham13
    Or just catch me around Code Fellows. I’m here frequently.
    Ryan Christensen
    @randhyllcho
    Isn't the closest El Camion by the stadiums? I'll be there around noon tomorrow. My interview is at 2 and I'm pretty nervous. Figured I can just hang out and soak up the vibes...
    Kevin Pham
    @kpham13
    There's one in SLU. The vibes are kinda sucky atm. Not many people around since Dev. Accelerator ended
    Ryan Christensen
    @randhyllcho
    Haha. I'll have to hunt down that one then.
    John Leonard
    @cwnidog
    For those of you who went through the iOS8/Swift Fundamentals II and will be going on to the iOS8/Swift Dev Accelerator, I suggest that you take a look at Chris Ching’s udemy course to review and keep your skills up: https://www.udemy.com/how-to-make-an-app/?dtcode=RpG5B6z213mj It goes over most of the same stuff that Brad covered and unlike Brad, you can stop & rewind as many times as you like.
    Oh, and most important - it’s free.
    Not that Brad minded repeating himself, but I’m sure that he had a limit somewhere.
    bradleypj823
    @bradleypj823
    haha I'm planning on recording all of our lectures this time
    so you can actually stop and rewind me
    John Leonard
    @cwnidog
    And I’ll point out that it was a lot easier to ask you a question and get an answer.

    @dakoch
    I have recordings for all of our iOS-F2 classes(Oct27-Nov26), just sound, no video. If anyone's interested, let me know. I can't wait to see Brad on the big screen!!

    The slides and example code work pretty well too. Going back through them with my final app up has been great!
