Overview
The professional programmer's Deitel® video guide to iApple's new Swift™ programming language and the Xcode 6 IDE.

Description
Featuring 7+ hours of video instruction, this is the professional programmer’s guide to using the Swift™ programming language and the Xcode 6 IDE. Learn core concepts through the Deitel signature live-code approach which presents concepts in the context of complete working Swift programs. Perfect for Objective-C programmers already building iOS apps, as well as Java, C++ and C# programmers who are new to iOS and OS X development. Includes lessons on: classes, objects, methods and functions; enums and tuples; arrays and closures; and more.

NOTE this LiveLesson is one in a series of two:

  • Swift Fundamentals LiveLessons Part I
  • Swift Fundamentals LiveLessons Part II

Skill Level
Beginner-to-Intermediate

What you Will Learn
Begin by learning how to register for Apple's developer program, and download and install the Xcode 6 Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Next comes a thorough introduction to writing simple Swift programs using strings, arithmetic operators, and the if conditional statement. Then move on to the Deitel's classic introduction to classes, objects, methods and functions, followed by Swift's control statements, assignment and logical operators. Next, functions and methods are presented in more depth, including an an introduction to enumerations and tuples. The LiveLesson ends with the Deitel's classic presentation of Arrays that also demonstrates the power of Swift’s functional programming capabilities, using closures and optionals, and the filter, map and reduce functions. Readers who want an introduction to iOS 8 app development in Swift, may want to consider Paul Deitel’s iOS 8 App Development Fundamentals LiveLessons.

Who should take this course?

  • Objective-C programmers who are developing new or modifying existing iOS and/or OS X apps, and who want to quickly begin using Swift in their apps.
  • Java, C++ and C# programmers who are new to iOS and OS X development, and who want to start developing iOS and/or OS X apps in Swift.

Course requirements
Familiarity with any C-based, object-oriented programming language, such as Objective-C, Java, C++ or C#.
