Who is presenting?

Steve Hayman - Apple

Digital Flagship Staff and Student Mentors


Who is this session for?

  1. Students who have never coded before can come explore this easy-to-learn language and start some coding of their own with help from Apple.
  2. Students who already code with Swift can come and get a refresh with the latest Xcode 10 and ask Apple more advanced questions about app development.
  3. All students who want to explore coding with Apple's Swift language are welcome.


What should I bring?

This session will be conducted in a Mac lab so equipment will be provided. If you have your own Mac laptop you are welcome to bring it. Just be sure that Xcode 10 is already installed from the App Store and that you have already opened it on your laptop (it can take awhile).

Have an iPad through Digital Flagship? Xcode only runs on Mac computers. Through your iPad you can begin sketching ideas for apps or practicing Swift coding through the Swift Playgrounds app in Self Service. The Macs in the lab will be used for app development.
