Explore solutions to common Swift programming challenges, and then compare the results with other programming languages in the Code Clinic series.
- Welcome to Code Clinic for Swift. I'm Simon Allardice, and I'll be taking you through my solutions for the challenges proposed to the Code Clinic authors. Here, you get to look over my shoulder as I use Swift to solve a range of problems. We'll explore unique aspects of working with this great new language, and I'll show you some techniques for making your faster, more reliable, and readable. Working through specific problems gives us a chance to dive into software architecture and design decisions I often don't get to explore in other courses. How do we begin with just a problem and end up with an application? And it's true you won't have the exact problems I'm solving here, but that's not the point.
If you're looking for tips on better coding or just trying to decide on your next new programming language to learn, I think you'll enjoy Code Clinic. Let's get started.
Simon introduces challenges and then provides an overview of his solutions in Swift. Challenges include topics such as statistical analysis, searching directories for images, and accessing peripheral devices.
