Learn Swift L.A. Has Flown The Coop!

Attention Los Angeles: Learn Swift L.A. has just launched!

Whether you’re an experienced programmer or new to iOS Development, if you are interested in learning Apple’s new programming language, Swift, then Learn Swift L.A. is the place for you.

We are a weekly Meet Up group for Angelenos interested in learning Swift and Xcode for iOS Development. All experience levels are welcome. We are all about practical learning, not just talking. Each week, we dig deep into practical programming topics – not just abstract concepts – and we really learn how to make iOS apps with Swift.

Are you interested?
