Mobile applications have become a staple of everyday life. There are over 1.4 million apps in the App Store, and iOS developers have earned a total of more than $25 billion since the first iPhone launched in 2007. With the release of the iPad and Apple Watch, knowledge of Swift is an increasingly in-demand skill. This weekend workshop will give you a taste of what it takes to build an iOS app in Swift.
