Learn to Build Your Own iOS Apps with Swift

Posted on: November 7th, 2016 by Brian Hopkins

Come see Swift in action from 1:00–3:00PM on Wednesday, November 16, 2016, in Weir 235.   Swift is a powerful and intuitive new programming language created by Apple for building iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Mac apps.

We’ll discuss and demonstrate Apple’s latest software development tools for the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and show how students, teachers, and institutions are building innovative mobile applications for their organizations and the wider world. We will highlight what’s new for developers, including the Swift language, the Xcode developer tools, and the simplified free deployment of apps to your own devices for anyone.  We’ll take a look at the new Swift programming curriculum, and if the presenter messes up, we may accidentally wind up demonstrating the debugger, as well.

Presenter: Steve Hayman,  National Consulting Engineer, Apple
