As you may recall, Apple SVP Craig Federighi unveiled Swift, a long-term replacement for Objective C, at Apple's annual developers conference just six weeks ago. Since then, the developer community has been studying the Swift language, and here at Bloc we've been hard at work updating our iOS curriculum.
In this 45 minute TechTalk, Bloc Course Director Stan Idesis will go over the basics of Swift, differences between Swift and Objective-C, and how to create your first app using Swift.
Building Your First Swift App
Intro to Swift
Stan will begin by covering a the basics of the Swift programming language. Next, Stan will compare and contrast Swift with Objective-C.
How an App Fits Together
It's important to understand how an app fits together. Stan will walk you through Swiftris - a replica of Tetris that he created using Swift. He'll go over the iOS Developer Environment, the languages required, and show you a working demo of Swiftris.
Stan will end by answering questions about iOS Development, Swift, and Bloc.
