Amsys announce the UK’s first Swift iOS development course

London, United Kingdom – Amsys are proud to announce that they have scheduled their first “Beginning Swift Development” course for July, and are the first training centre in the UK to do so. Swift, which was announced at last week’s WWDC keynote, has been created to make app development an easier, more accessible skill to acquire, as part of Apple’s ambitious drive to encourage more of the world to “Write the code. And change the world”.

This new 2 day course is tipped to be an exciting yet intensive training programme. Created by Amsys’ combined team of Apple developers and Apple Master IT Trainers, the lucky delegates will be some of the first in the world to learn the key skills and tools needed to create iOS and OS X apps using Swift.

Although Apple will continue to support Objective-C long into the future, it has been confirmed that all iOS 8 and Yosemite applications will support development using Swift. Therefore, Swift will quickly become a pre-requisite to any budding or seasoned Apple developer’s resume.

Richard Mallion, IT Director and Head of Mobile at Amsys, explains: “We are really excited by the opportunities that Swift bring to the app development market. The simpler structure of the programming language and the new features available to Swift, such as playground, enhance the intuitive and exciting nature of iOS App Development.

Our course, “Beginning Swift Development”, which is exclusive to Amsys, will teach both beginner and intermediate level iOS developers the key “Swift” skills to develop their own Apple Apps.”

The course, which is spread across two days, will be available at both their Manchester and Soho based Apple Authorised Training Centres. Throughout the course, delegates will learn fundamental key skills and tools such as; how Swift handles values, strings and characters, what classes are and how to use them, experiment with playground, plus an introduction to Xcode and how to manage and compile all your code.

For delegates familiar with Objective-C, the course also includes a module on combining Swift into existing apps that are written in Objective-C.

Amsys has combined their real world app development experience with their training expertise by delivering iOS development courses for the last 4 years. Their new “Beginning Swift Development” course will be a welcome addition to their training schedule, while setting the standard for bringing new and exciting courses to the iOS development training market.
