Help support your MeetupChip in
Excited about Apple's new programming language, Swift? We are too!
This group is primarily a study group where beginners and intermediate programmers learn and work together. Over the last 6 months, we have developed a rhythm and regular group. Currently we are testing 3-meetup sprints (3 meetups over 4 weeks) where groups start on a beginner or intermediate-level tutorial together and end together at the same pace. We now also have a few advanced users who have graciously volunteered to be tutors to anyone who has a question. No question is a dumb question! When we have location sponsors, sometimes there is a short talk at the beginning by the sponsor; and sponsors offer tutors as well. Soon we may be starting sprints to create our own iOS apps in Swift!
We welcome absolute beginners to programming as well if you are interested in using Swift to learn about the basics of programming.
For beginners, we go through the chapters of “The Swift Programming Language” iBook (https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/the-swift-programming-lan...) (or here: http://bit.ly/SwiftSF0001) so that we can learn together.
Where it makes sense, we will add speakers, lightning talks, lightning gripes?, and show and tell.
