What is Swift?

Swift is a programming language that allows you to write software for iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, Apple TVs, desktops, servers, and anything else that runs code! Swift is great for new programmers because it is very intuitive and continues to evolve as Apple adds new features. It is relatively easy to catch software bugs in Swift and you can check the results immediately by running code in a playground. Also, Swift is open source, so you can take this course even if you are using a Linux or Windows computer! Come learn what's new in Swift 5 and gain a new skill!

About the Author

  • Nick Walter

    Nick Walter - Mobile and Web Developer - iOS, Android, Django, Python. etc He loves to code. About five years ago he decided that he wanted to learn to code, but he had limited access to programming resources, and he was getting frustrated with all of the YouTube videos and online tutorials out there. He experimented, struggled, and definitely failed a lot, but he finally got the hang of it, so he decided that he wanted to change the way that people learned to code, and he started teaching. His experience as an online student has directly influenced his teaching style because he knows what it is like to be in your shoes. When Apple announced its new programming language, Swift, in 2014, he made his big online teaching debut and created the internet's first Swift course. Since that time, he has become a full-time online instructor and he now has courses not only in Swift, but also in iOS, Android, Django, Kotlin, Python, HTML, Blockchain, etc. He had also created five iOS apps from scratch that are currently live in the App Store and are being used by thousands of users worldwide. He love's sharing his excitement for coding with his students, and he did try to make learning as fun and as easy as possible. Thanks for being part of the coding community!
