10:00 AM - 4:15 PM     Bring Coding to Your School with Swift

        Technology has a language. It’s called code. And we believe coding is an essential skill.
Learning to code teaches you how to solve problems and work together in creative ways. And it
helps you build apps that bring your ideas to life. We think everyone should have the opportunity
to create something that can change the world. So we’ve designed a program that lets anyone
learn, write, and teach code.

                                                                                       Updated 4.24.19
We created a comprehensive Everyone Can Code curriculum to help you teach coding to
students from kindergarten to college. With teacher guides and lessons, you can introduce the
basics on iPad, then advance to building real apps on Mac. So whether your students are first-
time coders or aspiring app developers, you’ll have all the tools you need to teach coding in
your classroom. We even offer App Development with Swift Certification for students who have
completed App Development with Swift.
