Swift 3 – Learn to Code with Apple’s New Language
Have you ever wanted to try out programming? Have you tried to learn Swift, only to get fed up with incomplete YouTube tutorials and poorly written tutorials? Looking to move your code from Swift 2 to 3?
THIS IS THE COURSE FOR YOU!
In this Swift 3 course, It will walk you through all the essential information you need to write swift code. I’m a self taught programmer so I know what it feels like to start from scratch. I care about your learning.
I believe we learn best by doing. So, in this course, every lecture is followed up by an exercise for you to test yourself. This format will allow you to actually learn Swift and not just follow along like a robot 😉
Swift was open sourced in December of 2015 so you can now take this course even if you are on a Linux or Windows computer!
A Modern Language Evolved from Objective C
Swift 3 is a multi-paradigm programming language developed by Apple for use with iOS and OS X. Designed to replace Objective C, work began on Swift in 2010 and the first mobile app was debuted in June 2014 at the Worldwide Developers Conference. Despite its goal of replacing Objective C, Swift is capable of working alongside the more dated Objective C language while using the Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks.
Swift is built with the LLVM compiler included in Xcode 6 beta, and uses the Objective-C runtime, allowing Objective-C, Objective-C++ and Swift code to run within a single program. During it’s debut, Swift was described as “Objective C without the C” by Apple’s VP of Software Engineering Craig Federighi.
