Please join us in welcoming Apple on Friday April 5 to learn more about ARKit and Swift coding pedagogy! This is a hands-on workshop. Come ready to code! Apple is offering two workshops, one geared toward faculty/staff and another for students.
NOTES: Space is limited. RSVP to Cameron Kantner (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than April 3 to reserve your spot. You are welcome to join either workshop if the timing for one most appropriate for you doesn’t work with your schedule.
Workshop details below.
Apple Workshop -Everyone Can Code and Intro to Xcode 10 + Swift 4 Augmented Reality with ARKit 2-
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.
The powerful programming language that is also easy to learn.
Swift is a powerful and intuitive programming language for macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS. Writing Swift code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and Swift includes modern features developers love. Swift code is safe by design, yet also produces software that runs lightning-fast.
Join us to learn about Swift is a fantastic way to write software, whether it’s for phones, desktops, servers, or anything else that runs code. It’s a safe, fast, and interactive programming language that combines the best in modern language thinking with wisdom from the wider Apple engineering culture and the diverse contributions from its open-source community. The compiler is optimized for performance and the language is optimized for development, without compromising on either.
Swift is friendly to new programmers. It’s an industrial-quality programming language that’s as expressive and enjoyable as a scripting language. Writing Swift code in a playground lets you experiment with code and see the results immediately, without the overhead of building and running an app.
Build unparalleled augmented reality experiences for hundreds of millions of users on iOS — the biggest AR platform in the world. With ARKit 2 on iOS 12, your AR apps can now be experienced by multiple users simultaneously, and resumed at a later time in the same state. You can also incorporate real-world objects into your AR experiences, giving your users even greater immersive opportunities.
The workshop will be led by Steve Hayman - Apple Consulting Engineer
