“Building a Server Side Swift API for Games” Workshop


Are you interested to learn how to program Swift on the server? In this workshop, you will build an API for your front-end game engine using Perfect!

In this hands-on workshop, participants will build a back-end that:
Logs a player in
Stores individual and high scores
Delivers “in game news” items

Participants will also learn how to build your own Swift Package Module for code re-use. This session is open to anyone who is interested to learn more about programming Swift on the server.

Please bring your own laptops with Xcode 8 already installed. And you can take a look at what is included in the Perfect framework here: http://perfect.org.
