Swift Morning Study Group

Indiegogo is hosting a series of morning Study Groups for Apple's new Swift programming language for IOS. The goal is to learn Swift with other developers in a supportive environment. For our first Study Group, we will go over "Experiments" in the Swift Book (free from iTunes).

Continental breakfast will be provided.

You are allowed to bring your bicycle into the Event Space.

Prerequisites:

• Sign up for an Apple Developers account and download Xcode 6 beta that contains Swift. The download is now free but you will need to sign up for an Apple Developer account if you don't already have one.

• Install the Xcode 6 beta download.

• Download the Swift Book from iTunes. It's free.

• Skim the book or watch the Introduction to Swift video.

    Can we re-schedule this meetup ealier starting at 7am or maybe 7:30am so that it can end by 8, 8:30am and people who work in south bay and peninsula can be at time to work? ending at 9am is too late imho.

      Honestly, I doubt that'll happen. All of the organizers have a non-trivial commute and it has been a challenge for us to get in before 8:00.

    So I've been to a few Swift meetups, the goal of which is to learn Swift. I found this to be the most effective of the bunch. You will explore the new language with developers, who are as just curious as you. You will discover useful and interesting facets of Swift faster than via solo alternatives, like presentations, videos, or books, etc. The pace is rather fast, so it may not be for novice programmers, who have not been introduced to some of the higher-level and more difficult language constructs. However, for a seasoned developer like me, it is perfect.

    We left this morning with an one open question about splatting.

    Short answer (according to StackOverflow):
    Splatting is not in the language yet.

    Long answer:

    Should I install Yosemite? I'm thinking might be better to wait...?

      Also, I now have xcode 6.4 and hope that is the most recent.

      No need to install Yosemite. You definitely need XCode 6 beta 4.

    We'll be using Xcode beta 4 for tomorrow.
