Another St Augustine’s College student, Lincoln Hetherington, says, “When developing with Swift, I really enjoy the ability to think of literally anything and being able to create it for everyone to see. It’s easy to understand, and I love the limitless possibilities it offers. As the world is becoming more technologically advanced, knowing how to code will help me in the future with many different jobs and opportunities.”
As the app economy continues to grow, Apple is investing in educational programs and opportunities that help prepare learners of all ages for the jobs of the future. With Swift Playgrounds, Everyone Can Code, and Develop in Swift, Apple gives anyone interested in learning to code the tools and guidance to create their own apps using the same tools as professional developers. Today, more than 9,000 K-12 and higher education institutions worldwide are using Apple’s coding curricula, and Apple coding academies, accelerators, and Entrepreneur Camps give up-and-coming developers the opportunity to apply the latest technologies to their apps, build their businesses, and market their ideas to a global audience.
