Beginning App Development with Swift
Date: October 19, 5:10PM-6:00PM
Location: MADLab, Gerstein Science Information Centre, 1 Below, room B112

Each week we’ll cover a topic in introductory Swift and app development for iOS with a short talk, some practical examples, and help from an experienced Swift programmer.
