Apple recently announced that the new iOS 10 will come with Swift Playgrounds, which would teach kids to code “in a seriously fun way.” Apple believes that coding is an essential skill, with their slogan “Everyone Can Code.”
According to Apple “Swift Playgrounds is a revolutionary new app for iPad that makes learning Swift interactive and fun by solving puzzles to master the basics using Swift.”
Swift is a powerful programming language created by Apple and used by the pros to build many of today’s most popular apps. Users can take on a series of challenges and step up to more advanced creations. Swift Playgrounds requires no coding knowledge, so it’s perfect for students just starting out. It also provides a unique way for seasoned developers to quickly bring ideas to life.
Swift PlayGrounds will be available to download in the app store for free this fall.
