Come to a free Swift class and learn the basics of the Swift language with fellow Ruby developers.

We'll share our tips tailored for developers coming from Ruby / Ruby on Rails. It'll be a hands-on class; together we'll go through several code exercises that will lead to writing your first Swift app.

Your instructor: JP Simard is a developer working on Realm (http://realm.io/), A mobile-first database for Swift + Objective-C.

When JP's not coding, he enjoys playing jazz, running and cycling around San Francisco. Catch him on Twitter: @simjp (https://twitter.com/simjp)
