Swift: Introduction to iOS Programming (Age 12+)

Swift

CAMP OVERVIEW

Language: English

The Swift course introduces the programming language Swift, which is a profession language for making iOS and macOS applications. This course will lay the foundation for learning the Swift syntax and the XCode IDE. These are necessary building blocks to prepare students for programming their favorite Apple devices (iPhones, macs, Apple watch, Apple TV).

To familiarize students with Swift and XCode, they will work on algorithmic exercises throughout the term. These exercises will touch on key concepts and components that will lead students to building their first iOS app by the end of the course.

CAMP HIGHLIGHTS

8:1 Ratio Guarantee

We believe in developing a personal relationship with the student. Our instructors are as much teachers as we are facilitators, and coach for our students' learning. By ensuring a small class, each student benefits from maximum attention from instructor and teaching assistant, and at the same time, learns from peers.

Personalized Learning

Our courses are designed for students to run at their own pace. Our curriculum is level-based for each module, meaning that each student can learn at their own appropriate, customized pace.

Hands-on Project-based Learning

First Code classrooms are messy, chaotic and we love it! We believe in hands-on creation, experimental learning and lots of discussion.

Follow on Curriculum for Immersed Learning

What happens after this holiday? Like learning any other language, learning to code is best done through an immersive, continual commitment. We offer a multi-year curriculum that allows students to deepen and broaden their interests in computer science and software development.
