MaGIC Academy: Learn Swift Programming (Mobile Development)


Event Details

Apple have come up to a new programming language for iOS and OS X based apps that builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. This language adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more fun and more flexible. It's a new programming language for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks.

Development of Swift started by Chris Lattner in collaboration with other programmers in 2010 and was announced by Apple in 2014. The language was designed with two goals in mind, to be swift to code and execute. Swift syntax was designed to be clean and easy to read. This is to make it friendly for new programmers, and as a result it is incredibly easy to learn.

This introductory bootcamp is suitable for aspiring mobile entrepreneurs who have ideas which they want to be developed.
