Why learn iOS app development with SWIFT
Apps - you use them every day. But how do they work? And who actually builds them? The Australian app economy supports about 113,000 jobs all over the country – iOS developers, programmers, designers, coders. And they all speak one language: Swift. RMIT is the first Australian university to collaborate with Apple on a dedicated app development course. This is an introductory taster to welcome you to the wonderful world of Swift, where you’ll be taught by some of the country’s leading iOS experts, and can structure your learning to suit your lifestyle.
How does it work
Our iOS App Development with Swift program gives you the flexibility to study in and around your life and work commitments. The course is self-paced over four weeks, and we estimate that you’ll need to spend 20-30 hours to complete it. You’ll be able to check in for additional support with a mentor from leading industry companies and build powerful networks with your peers.
This course introduces you to the basics of the Swift programming language. You will use a playground environment to instantly see what your code does. As you start building apps, you will also use Xcode with its integrated development environment to help you solve errors and build interfaces for your apps.
