We are proud to announce that we just released a demo for the Swift Programming from Scratch application. For each exercise from the book we are going to make a special Playground that you will use to solve it. It will validate your solutions and keep track of your progress. Making learning to code easier and more engaging. The demo includes the first 2 chapters from the book (Variables and Conditionals) and can be downloaded for free below:
If you wish to get the full version as soon as it’s available please consider supporting us on Indiegogo. You can preorder the app right now for 25$.
?You can buy the full app from here!
I guess, some tips would be appreciated. E.g. how to get the last digit in 1.7
We updated to content of the book! The remainder operator (%) is explained in chapter 1.
Since now Swift can also be used to write Mac apps, would you please make future tutorials and samples to support both Mac and iOS app? Thank you.
For the moment we are focused on content for learning Swift and iOS – we are going to make tutorials for mac apps in the future (6-12 months).
hey…i’m trying to use the view controller backgroundColor property when coding in the ViewController file…
my code: view.backgroundColor = UIColor( “red”)
but it gives me an error. i also tried to create an @IBOutlet var myView: UIView!
any comments will be appreciated…
@gary, yeah for most applications I have found that the “background” part creates errors or just flat out fails our build.
Nearly every single exercise I do in the Exercise Playground reports a “compilation error” when I click submit and yet, everything looks as it should in the Console Output of the Assistant Editor.
If I copy and paste the EXACT same code from the solution section on here, it works when I click submit. I can’t tell if it’s because I’m using return or tabs or spaces or what but the code that I type looks IDENTICAL to the code I am copying and pasting. I just don’t get it.
we are looking into this – we are preparing an update
Excellent. Thank you. I’m still able to go through the course and use the Playground. I was just looking for some confidence that I wasn’t doing something wrong A programming friend of mine who knows Objective C really well checked my work last night and concluded the problem was with the playground, not the code I was typing.
Can you link me to the solutions for playground demos? I have just started using the Swift Programming from Scratch demo and love it! Thanks a bunch.
Here is the book it has all the problems, solutions and theory
Every time I try to download the demo app it says “Safari cannot download file “. Any ideas what to do?
Try again. If the problem still persists. Try using another browser – but I can’t imagine why Safari wont work.
