Developers looking to write their way out of the Apple ecosystem now have a language for breaking away: Swift. With the help of IBM’s web framework Kitura, Swift gives those struggling with Node.js or schooled in client-side iOS development a new avenue for building a versatile backend for an application.
- Learn the basics of Swift language and programming
- Get comfortable with server-side Swift and set up a project using Kitura
- Create routes for the API and connect them to a data model
- Explore the environment and tools developed to support Swift and Kitura
- Use the Swift package manager to download and manage libraries
