This is a college style course that introduces students to entry level computer programming. No prior knowledge is required, though it can be helpful. The year will start with an introduction to hardware, data communications, and data representation. Students will be introduced to various languages through the sequence of this program (Programming 1, 2, 3) though we will concentrate on Swift which was developed by Apple Compters specifically to develope apps for their hardware: iPhone, iPad, and Mac PCs.
If you don't understand this part, don't worry...
Swift is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm, compiled programming language developed by Apple Inc. for iOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, and Linux. Swift is designed to work with Apple's Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks and the large body of existing Objective-C (ObjC) code written for Apple products. It is built with the open source LLVM compiler framework and has been included in Xcode since version 6. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swift_(programming_language)
