We often say here at Flatiron School that whether you’re learning in person or online, you should never learn alone. That’s one reason it’s an incredibly exciting time to learn Swift, Apple’s new iOS programming language. There’s a huge momentum in the Swift community right now. Because it’s so new, there are so many people going through the learning process with you—and many of them, from brand new coders to lifelong developers, are documenting their learnings in blog posts, tutorials, and even tweets.
If you’re just starting to learn Swift on your own or through Flatiron School’s new online Swift course, here are nine essential sites, developers, and resources to have on your radar as you continue your iOS coding journey.
This site is great for people learning Swift. It provides detail-rich blog posts about the latest and greatest advances in Swift and iOS. Additionally, if you’re a beginner looking to learn the basics of Swift, the simple explanations they provide in their video tutorials are superb!
Matt Gallagher is an Australian developer, consultant, and author of the site Cocoa With Love (“Cocoa” being the programming environment on any of Apple’s major platforms). Matt can explain programming topics in depth like no other. You can also follow him on twitter here.
Here’s a resource for the more advanced iOS and OS X topics. Chris Eidhof, Daniel Eggert, and Florian Kugler, the developers behind the site, really know how to talk about Swift.[irp posts=”2413″ name=”What Makes Pokemon GO… Go? Learn In Our New Tutorial”]
