Description: Whether you're creating the next Flappy Bird or custom enterprise applications, you'll need a solid foundation in iOS development skills. This course will touch on the major important components present in many successful iOS apps. We will move quickly, and to be successful in this course you will need to spend time on iOS development outside of our weekly meetings. For this course, we are looking for participants who can demonstrate a passion for iOS development. 

Note: This course is separate from CocoaNuts and does not allow for drop-in participation. Participants will need to register through Research Park. 
Textbook: The textbook for this course will be Apple's iBook "The Swift Programming Language." An additional resource which may be helpful is "Using Swift with Cocoa and Objective-C," although we will not cover Objective-C in this course. 

Schedule: This course meets weekly on Wednesdays at 6:30 in Enterprise Works.
