Apple_Swift_LogoLocal designer and developer Kyle Oba of Pas De Chocolate is leading a one-day class on programming using Apple’s new Swift language.

Swift, introduced last year, is the result of the latest research on programming languages, intended to be both powerful and accessible.

With the workshop set for Sunday, March 1, he has plenty of time to put together his syllabus. But being the collaboration-minded coder that he is, he’s inviting students (and presumably potential students) to design the class through a wiki on Github.

Through use of examples and coding via the Read Eval Print Loop (REPL), playgrounds, and test scaffolding, spend a day getting to know the Swift programming language. Focus is on fostering a discussion of Swift via hands-on experimentation. This course is a Swift basics primer, taught via examples, participation, and discussion. Are you familiar with at least one programming language? Do you enjoy programming or wish you did? Are you interested in or do you have experience developing iOS or OS X applications? If so, this class is for you.

The class is part of the University of Hawaii at Manoa’s Outreach College, and will be taught from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Sakamaki Hall. The cost is $135.
