Do I need a database?

I’m going through the page on basic templates for SwiftUI and am reminded about what a great writer Paul is. It’s so helpful how he breaks things down.

This is bringing back to mind some of the cool stuff I’ve learned already, about what goes in a View, VStack and HStack, and a few other pieces.

The big thing I’m wondering about and hoping I can figure out:

I have a screen, let’s say the app home screen. That’s a view. But then I want to have a list on that, say a list of birthdays, with their own views for each birthday. Right now it’s a mystery how I’ll do that. I want those to come from a database, I think? That’s what I’ll be trying to figure out.

Alright, I’m going to dive into the first real lesson and see what I learn.
