Join Scott Gardner for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Swift 3 Essential Training: The Basics.
- [Instructor] There are just a couple things you should be familiar with before taking this course. First, you should be comfortable with using a Mac. You should understand how to write code into a source editor and be familiar with the fundamentals of programming including creating variables, loops, writing conditional statements, functions, and classes, core concepts found in any programming language. If you're new to programming, check out our Foundations of Programming: Fundamentals course first to provide you with a solid foundation upon which to learn Swift here. And if you're new to Mac, search our library for Mac OS to find courses to help you get up and running.
This course will cover the basic essentials of Swift 3. And it is designed for you to go through each chapter sequentially. So if you do jump around and find something that's not completely clear, just remember to check the table of contents or search the course to zero in on where that topic is covered.
Learn how to write code, understand Swift's key concepts and best practices, and strengthen your programming problem-solving skills. Instructor Scott Gardner teaches the fundamentals, so you'll be prepared to develop applications for iOS, macOS, and other platforms. Completing this course will enable you to not only write first-class code, but to think like a Swift developer.
