Hour 4. Getting the Big Core Data Picture
What You’ll Learn in This Hour:
• Understanding the core data objectives
• Exploring the core data stack
• Working with fetch requests
Starting Out with Core Data
The section provides a brief introduction to Core Data. The remaining hours in this part of the book provide you with more details. The next part of the book shows you how to merge Core Data with the frameworks and code you saw in the first part of the book.
This overview is descriptive. There are several tips for places you might want to come back to if you want to—for example, change the name of your database—but the point of the hour is a high-level view. Starting with the next hour, you will get into creating your own Core Data code.
