About This Course: Swift is an innovative programming language that modernizes iOS and OS X application development by building on the best of Objective-C and other modern languages. This Swift programming course provides a comprehensive introduction to its concepts. You will take advantage of Swift’s concise and expressive syntax to reduce coding time and create fast and powerful applications.

You Will Learn How To

  • Create, compile and execute Swift programs using Xcode
  • Verify Swift code in Playgrounds
  • Organize code with classes, structures and enumerations
  • Develop Mac, iPhone and iPad applications that use functions
  • Implement flexible object-oriented designs with inheritance, aggregation, extensions and protocols

Important Course Information


  • Previous programming experience and knowledge of an object-oriented programming language, such as C++, C#, Java, Ruby, Visual Basic .NET, or Python

Recommended Experience:

  • The Mac environment
