New Yorkers can learn Apple’s new programming language for free



Are you based in New York City and looking to learn Apple’s new programming language Swift for free?

If so, you may be interested in participating in a tech workshop organized by software development firm TurntoTech in their offices on 5th Avenue. Close to 900 people have already RSVP’d for the how-to — which kicks off this Wednesday. Demand has been so great, in fact, that organizers have had to break the course into three different classes to accommodate all respondees.

The first Swift class will be held this Wednesday at 6:30pm ET, with the second being held the following Wednesday at the same time, and the final one to be held June 23.

“I think Swift has proven to be popular among developers because from the get go it is more accessible, has elegant syntax, and is easier to learn,” event organizer Sean Moskowitz tells Cult of Mac. “Attendees do not need to be experienced to attend. That is the great part about our workshops, whether it be Swift or any others — we cater them to both the beginner and the expert.”

Apple unveiled Swift last week at its WWDC event in San Francisco. According to the project’s originator at Apple, Swift has been in development since 2010.
