Beginning App Development with Swift


Date: November 9, 2017 5:10PM-6PM

Location: MADLab, Gerstein Science Information Centre, 1 Below, room B112

Presenter: Mike Spears, iOS Developer & MADLab Manager


What’s Covered

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.


This workshop series is for anyone who wants to get started with Swift and app development. You do not have to be an experienced programmer. We are here to answer any question you may have about Swift and app development in an open, fun and collaborative atmosphere.


This workshop is presented as a series of sessions that will progressively cover the material from the free electronic textbook. If you miss one or more sessions but wish to return to the workshop, you may catch up by following the text book on your own.


This week (Week 4): Xcode & Building, Running, Debugging an App (Book sections 1.5 & 1.6)




  • A laptop running Xcode 8+
  • Xcode is available for free from the Mac app store
  • We will have a few Macbooks available at the session to borrow and share
