Philly CocoaHeads Book Club featuring Swift Coding Challenges by Paul Hudson

Our Book this term is Swift Coding Challenges by Paul Hudson.  Chock full of fun, enlightening, and stimulating puzzles and problems, you won't be able to stop yourself from reaching for the next one.

Whether your goal is to level up in Swift or prepare for your next job interview, I can think of no better preparation.  I started each day with a new Swift Code Challenge as a way to get myself in the right head space for coding.

Book Club sessions will be interactive and fun as you present your solutions and review each others code - looking at simplicity, performance, and 'Swift'iness.  There is no barrier to jumping in at any time as the challenges are completely independent.

The ebook can be purchased for $20 at:

Book Club will be every Tuesday at 8PM.

    Thank you all for making the first session of “Book Club: Swift Coding Challenges Edition” totally rock. We had great solutions from a wide assortment of attendees, in-depth comparisons of different solutions to challenges, and some great questions. We had 14 attendees tonight, but more are welcome. Invite your friends and coworkers.

    Tonight we touched on Sets, Arrays, the CharacterView of a String, switch statements, avoiding O(n2) performance of algorithms, and much more.

    Next week we will tackle Challenges 3, 4, 17, 18, and bonus 19 if we have time. See you next week, Tuesday 17 January @ 8PM.
