苹果开设免费编程课程

苹果开设免费编程课程,面向高中生和社区大学生。课程内容是用SWIFT开发,如果喜欢自学(好像程序猿都喜欢自学),苹果提供了教材和其他学习资料。如果你在美国,还可以在文中的社区大学列表中选择去听课。当编程慢慢成为了套路,想成为优秀的程序猿会更难。事实上就算是套路,也不简单。“咦,你知道苹果机器有多贵吗?”

Want to Create Your Own Apps? Apple Will Teach You How to Code, For Free

Maybe you have a cool app in mind that you would like to develop… but you don’t know who to hire to code it, much less the money. No problem: If you’re a DIY kind of person, Apple released a free app development curriculum in the iBooks Store.

While the curriculum is designed for high school and community college students — and select schools will start offering the curriculum this fall — you don’t have to attend school to learn to code in Swift, Apple’s programming language. (It’s not the “junior” version of app development: Apps for companies like Kayak, Airbnb, Yelp, and TripAdvisor were all created using Swift.)

And in case you aren’t aware, you can also learn to code with Swift using Swift Playgrounds.

Granted downloading a set of textbooks and teacher guides isn’t the same as taking classes; then again, for many people self-paced learning is the best kind of learning. You don’t have to wait for other students to catch up; you don’t have to worry that you’re holding other students back.

And you can learn to code whenever you have time, not on someone else’s schedule.

But if you like the thought of taking classes, here are the community colleges that will offer the curriculum this fall:

Starting this fall, the following community college systems serving nearly 500,000 students nationwide will teach the new curriculum, among others:

Alabama Community College System
Columbus State Community College
Harrisburg Area Community College
Houston Community College
Mesa Community College
San Mateo Community College District
Check it out. And if you have kids, definitely check it out. The app economy is already huge, and the automation economy — and the ability to, if not program, at least understand the technology and issues underlying automation programming — will grow exponentially in the years to come.

Plus, you might find out you enjoy it. Plenty of people already do: According to Apple, Swift Playgrounds has been downloaded over one million times, and the add-on “Everyone Can Code” has been downloaded nearly half a million times.
