Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Jonathan Wong. And welcome to my course Getting Started with Server-Side Swift and Vapor. I'm a mobile developer at Tealium. Saving your data and communicating to a back end service are common tasks for any modern mobile app. Now with your knowledge of Swift and leveraging the powerful Vapor framework, you're able to stay in one language and build both a mobile app and a web app entirely in Swift. In this course, we're going to start with a blank slate and build out an entire web application. You'll learn to create, read, update, and delete data to a MySQL database. We'll look at templating with Leaf in building out our website, and we'll also take a look at deploying our app to Vapor Cloud and Heroku. By the end of this course, you'll have a firm understanding of how to develop Server-Side Swift apps with Vapor. All you need to get started with this course is some knowledge of Swift. You don't need to know anything about Server-Side Swift or Vapor. I'm going to be covering it from the ground up. I can't wait to take you on this journey through Server-Side Swift and Vapor at Pluralsight.
