Course Description
In this 5 day intensive course, you will learn about the basics of programming with Swift, the basic data types, functions, structures, classes, and much more. You will learn how to use Apple’s UIKit to build a basic app and you will run it on your personal iPhone.

You will spend time in interactive sessions to learn about a few of the concepts each day and you will receive optional homework that will allow you to further put your new skills into action. If you complete all the homework, you will have created your first own app, from scratch, by the end of the week.

This is a great starting point if you want to get into app development for iOS. You will be able to expand your skills from here easily. This intensive course will give you the fundamental knowledge in Swift that will allow continuing into more advanced courses.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the 5-day course:

  • You will learn the basics of object-oriented programming with Swift
  • You will learn how to design simple user interfaces with UIKit
  • You will understand the difference between the problem - and solution domain and how to design an app in a problem-oriented way
  • You will understand the basics of agile software engineering

Method of Instruction

  • The lecture will be held in live sessions. Sessions will be held face-to-face and will be recorded.
  • There will be dedicated Q&A sessions during which you can ask all questions on the material or regarding the app you’re working on yourself.
Required Resources

  • A Mac running the latest version of macOS Ventura at the time of the start of the lecture
  • An Apple ID to install Xcode from the App Store
Assessment

During the course, you will apply your newly acquired Swift skills to build your own app based on user stories we provide. We will evaluate your performance based on your final app. We will evaluate it based on three criteria:

  • User Experience (that is, how intuitive is the user interface)
  • Code Quality (How readable and efficient is your code)
  • Fulfilment of the requirements (I.e., did you successfully implement all user stories)

Develop in Swift

Swift is a comprehensive coding offering and prepares students to be competitive in the digital economy.


Swift is a powerful and intuitive programming language for iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, and watchOS.


Writing Swift code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive.


It’s a great first language

Swift can open doors to the world of coding. In fact, it was designed to be anyone’s first programming language. Created by Apple that’s as easy to learn as it is powerful to use. The commands are based on words you already know, like “jump” and “forward”. And it’s used by the pros to create the most popular apps for iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch.

Develop in Swift curriculum

Get started or take your skills to the next level. The Develop in Swift books are flexible enough to help you whether you’re new to coding or want to advance your skills.
