Introduction to Swift

Course Summary

The Introduction to Swift training course is designed to demonstrate how to get familiar with Swift, Apple's popular programming language optimized for mobile development.

The course begins by outlining common data types and tools teams need to create programs with Swift. Next, it explores critical topics such as dealing with data, Object-Oriented (OO) programming, functions, closures, and more. The course concludes with a discussion of best practices for error handling and access control, as well as more resources for advanced study.
