Building iOS apps with swift.
Apple has introduced Swift language in WWDC this year.Swift is a new programming language created by Apple to program iOS apps. Swift has various advantages over objective C and also has better performance with Apple hardware. Swift will be next Apple programming language and will evolve over the years.
It is great opportunity to learn the language when it is first live giving us the great cutting edge over the other programmers. We will learn Apple concepts using Swift. We will learn every minor details which Swift comes with and comparing with Objective C, C++ and JAVA. Various frameworks using SWIFT.
If you are new to programming or to Swift then this course is for you. This course will introduce you to iOS app development in Swift, a new programming language from Apple .This course will set you on your way to becoming an iOS Developer, where you’ll establish a basic understanding of the iOS ecosystem. You’ll also have working knowledge of Swift, Apple’s custom programming language created exclusively for the mobile developer.
Real-world projects and demos:
All the topics and concepts will be accompanied by a demo project to explain the concepts right away. Also, at the end of each module/chapter it would accompany a real world app; comprising the concepts taught in the particular module. So by the end of the course, you would have worked with 5-10 real world projects and at least 30 demo projects.
After the completion of iOS App Development using Swift course you will be able to:
Understand the core construct of newly introduced Swift Programming Language
Work with Autolayouts to build applications for all screen sizes
Handle touch and complex multi-touch sequences
Animate user interfaces
Pull data from a web service for use in an application
Create an application that can access the user’s photos or use the camera to take new photos for use within the application
Store data on the device using multiple techniques
Properly configure your user interface to handle multiple device orientations and device rotation
Architect large applications with many sources of data and interfaces
Learn how to program real apps with Swift
Make an app for your business
Implement an app idea that you have had
Sell and market your apps successfully
Start a new career as an app developer
Prerequisites and Requirements
Any basic experience in programming would be helpful(but not necessary).
You will also need access to a Mac computer running OS X 10.10 or later.
A paid Apple Developer account is NOT required – you can download Xcode 6 for free
We have designed this course such that you will not need a physical device (i.e. an iPhone or an iPad) to build your app. We will be using a simulator on your mac that will imitate the features of a phone on your computer.

Why is the language called Swift?
The language was designed with two goals in mind: to be (1) swift to code, and (2) swift to execute. In terms of speed, Swift compiles Swift code to optimized native code depending on target device. In terms of learning curve, the Swift syntax was designed to be clean and easy to read.
Should I learn Swift or Objective-C?
Swift! Apple has made it clear that Swift is the cornerstone of the future of iOS development. Plus, you can still utilize Objective-C files alongside Swift code, so you won’t miss out on any pre-existing libraries and code.
How easy is Swift to learn?
Swift was designed to be friendly for new programmers, and as a result it is incredibly easy to learn. According to Apple, Swift is the “first industrial-quality systems programming language that is as expressive and enjoyable as a scripting language.” Some have even called Swift the new BASIC.
Is it fast?
Apple boasts that Swift is up to 2.6x faster than Objective-C and 8.4x faster than Python 2.7. And why should you care about how quickly code executes? Well, faster running code makes for more efficient and smoother running apps, which makes for a better experience for your user.
