Apple announced today that their App Development platform Swift will now be offered in more than 30 community colleges across the country in the 2017-2018 school year. The curriculum for the Swift programming class was developed by engineers and educators at Apple. The course is a full year and teaches students how to build apps using Swift.

Apple’s new programming language Swift was made open source in December of 2015. Apple has put a large emphasize on security with the Swift programming language along with performance and modern software design patterns.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said the following in the post “We’ve seen firsthand how Apple’s app ecosystem has transformed the global economy, creating entire new industries and supporting millions of jobs,” “We believe passionately that same opportunity should be extended to everyone, and community colleges have a powerful reach into communities where education becomes the great equalizer.”

Colleges adding the App Development with Swift curriculum is Austin Community College District, Northeast Mississippi Community College, Northwest Kansas Technical College and additional campuses in the Alabama Community College System.

The post goes on to say “Apple’s app economy supports 1.5 million jobs in the United States. Last year, US software developers earned $5 billion through the App Store, a 40 percent increase over 2015. Since the App Store launched, Apple has paid out $16 billion to US developers, over one-quarter of total App Store earnings.”

Great to see Apple supporting young developers and inspiring innovation. Apple is one of the big companies helping to make American jobs and support educating America.
