"You’re here at the beginning. There is no priesthood. There are no old folks sitting on rocking chairs cussing your new-fangled dot-syntax. You are the old folks. You remember before immutable arrays."@cocoaphony | I Don't Know Swift


On June 2 2014, in a darkened hall at Moscone West, a new programming language was born. We followed three days after. Welcome to Swift London!

First and foremost we are a collaborative community, for developers of all abilities, experienced or new, who want to learn about Swift and understand what it means for the future of iOS and OS X development. We are run by enthusiasts, not-for-profit, independent and unaffiliated.

Everyone is welcome, from all backgrounds, no London residence required (some have asked).


We hold a developer event every two weeks, alternating between a Talks night on the third Tuesday, and a practical Hands On session on the first Monday of the month. We also arrange workshops by special request. Follow us on Twitter for announcements.

If you want to come along and discuss ideas, or get involved, all are welcome to join. Hopefully we can learn together, support each other, and grow something special.

For the first time in years, we're all beginners again. Let's begin together.


We're looking for speakers, authors, and tutorial makers who'd like to beta test their work on our community. We're also looking for people with slightly more experience to help coach those new to Swift, and there will be many. If you're already knee deep in the language, and you have a specific problem you'd like to work on with others, or an idea for group discussion, that sounds perfect for our Labs session. Come along and we'll help you make it happen.

Have you come to an event, and have ideas for developing the group? Come talk to us! We'd love to get you involved, and we really welcome constructive criticism. Tell us what you think, and we'll listen.

If you're interested in collaborating, volunteering, or speaking, we'd be very happy to hear from you.
