Even though it's barely a year old, Swift is already popular with programmers for its flexibility and expressiveness. And now, Apple has made Swift and its toolchain open source, allowing it to be used on non-Apple platforms!
In our new course, How to Use Swift on Linux, you will learn how to get Swift installed on Linux and write a basic open-source Swift application. The course consists of just seven bite-sized video lessons, so you can easily fit it in around your other commitments. And best of all, it’s free.
What You’ll Learn
In this course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Derek Jensen will help you take open-source Swift for a test drive.
You'll learn how to get up and running with Swift on Linux, natively or via a virtual machine, and you'll write a simple cipher application for the Linux command line. All in under an hour! Is it possible? Absolutely. Watch the quick introduction video below to find out more.
