Swift iOS Programming for Kids

Overview of this book

This book starts at the beginning by introducing programming through easy to use examples with the Swift Playgrounds app. Kids are regularly encouraged to explore and play with new concepts to support knowledge acquisition and retention – these newly learned skills can then be used to express their own unique ideas. Children will be shown how to create their first iOS application and build their very own movie night application.

Getting Set Up


In this chapter, we looked at what programming actually is, why it is useful, and examples of what we use programming for. We discussed what a world without programming would look like and we looked at a short introduction to the Swift programming language. Lastly, we introduced what the reader can expect to learn when reading this book and how this can be used moving further into the world of programming.

In the next chapter, we will go over the practical part of getting the user set up with the right tools in order to begin programming.
