Apple Coding Language Will Soon Be Taught at Community College

Jun 6, 2017

APPLE MOVES INTO COMMUNITY COLLEGES: Apple already offers lessons on its coding language, Swift, to K-12 educators through its Everyone Can Code curriculum. But its education (and likely developer recruitment) efforts are expanding into higher education, starting this fall with six community college systems that will be the first to offer a two-semester course on App Development with Swift.

Designed by Apple engineers and teachers, students taking the course will learn how to code and design apps using Apple’s coding language, which is also used by major tech companies including Airbnb, Venmo and Yelp.

The colleges teaching App Development with Swift later this year are Alabama Community College System, Houston Community College, Columbus State Community College, Harrisburg Area Community College, Mesa Community College and San Mateo Community College District. According to Inside Higher Ed, “the goal is to roll the program out to other institutions over time.”
