About Swift

Swift is a modern open source programming language that runs on macOS, Linux and on Windows using a linux subsystem.

Swift was developed initially by Apple to interoperate with their key frameworks, Cocoa and CocoaTouch, both of which are mostly implemented in Objective-C.

Swift is influenced by a large number of existing programming languages, and it incorporates concepts from a wide range of programming methods. Everything from scripting to object oriented and functional programming.

Apple refers to Swift as a "protocol oriented programming language" and has expressed the goal of eventually making Swift useful for everything from scripts to an operating system.


This Swift Tour is an introduction the language on Apple's Public Developer Website.


Wikipedia's Swift Page giving a good, Wikipedia-styled overview.


Swift is documented in The Swift Programming Language - again, on Apple's Public Developer Website - and in the iBooks Store. The ePub version is also available on Swift.org.

Exercism is a great website

Exercism is a great website where I was able to have some very interesting challenges.

Relaxed. Encouraging. Supportive.

Meet the Swift Track Mentors

Once you join the Swift language track, you will receive support and feedback from our team of mentors. Here are the bios of a few of the mentors of this track.

Greg Stromire https://github.com/gstro

I learned to program on embedded devices, and later moved to iOS development in Objective-C and Swift. Most recently, I've been exploring functional programming in Scala. I'm interested in security principles and applied cryptography. And if I can ever find some spare free time, I would love to try out Rust!

Clement Rousselle https://github.com/crousselle

I love Swift for the new approach it gives to iOS development. I started using Swift when 1.0 was announced, excited to help developpers learn this super fun language!
Fun. Challenging. Interesting
