About this Course

In this course, you'll learn how to utilize Swift as a server-side language for building end-to-end applications. You'll learn by doing — creating projects with Swift clients and servers as well as middleware components that can leverage the power of services in the cloud. You'll also work with custom tooling specifically designed to reduce developer friction and let you work in a native environment regardless of whether you're implementing the client or the server.

Why Take This Course

When Apple open-sourced Swift, it created ripples throughout the development community — especially for those who wanted to extend Swift beyond the world of Apple devices. Fast-forward to today and Swift is flourishing as a language for traditional Apple applications as well as server-side applications that run on Linux environments. It is now possible for developers to create end-to-end in Swift. That's one language that can power everything from iOS client applications to web servers.
