What is Swift?

Swift is a programming language that allows you to write software for iPhones, iPads, Macs, Apple Watches, Apple TVs, desktops, servers, and anything else that runs code! Swift is great for new programmers because it is very intuitive and continues to evolve as Apple adds new features. It is relatively easy to catch software bugs in Swift and you can check the results immediately by running code in a playground.

About The Author

Nick Walter: Nick Walter is an experienced mobile and web developer and has worked with technologies such as iOS, Android, Django, and Python.

That’s when Nick took up teaching. His experience as an online student has definitely influenced his teaching style—he knows what it is like to be in their shoes.

He started his teaching career in 2014, with the Internet’s first Swift course. He now teaches a range of technologies such as iOS, Android, Django, Kotlin, Python, HTML, and Blockchain.
