Swift Playgrounds brings coding to life with an interactive interface that encourages students and beginners to explore working with Swift, the easy-to-learn programming language from Apple used by professional developers to create world-class apps. Swift Playgrounds includes Apple-developed programming lessons where students write code to guide onscreen characters through an immersive graphical world, solving puzzles and mastering challenges as they learn core coding concepts.
Learning a programming language has been something I’ve put off for many years. When Apple announced Swift, I felt like it could be the right language for me. I guess I’ll know for sure when I get my hands on this app in a few months.
I think this is also a clear sign that Apple is building more robust developer tools for iOS. My guess is we’ll see a full-fledged Xcode for iPad within the next two years.
