        Complete rookie question here as I just started to learn how to use Xcode and signing into the plateform, I get a "build failed" message, what could be the problem ? Thanks !

          Many possible causes.

           

          Look at the left panel, select the "Show issue navigator" with Danger icon.

          Scroll through the text displayed and look for red signs: they the errors.

           

          If needed, post those errors here.

           

          Common errors:

          - a var is unknown, because you did not declare it or it is not in the right scope

          - parenthesis or curly braces are not balanced, so compiler get lost

          - you override a func illegally

          - errors related to build itself: usually, doing a Project Clean Folder  in Product menu solves a lot

          - and many others

            That is a not a rookie question!  That is a question which will continue throughout your career.

             

            (also check that you arent using the Dixie plateform it is very unstable -- almost like paper)

             

            Best of luck!
