Swift iOS Programming for Kids

By: Steffen D. Sommer, Jim Campagno

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


Congratulations on completing this project! This is no small feat; you've just created your first iOS application. We've introduced a lot of new topics, which include the following:

  • Enumerations

  • Enumerations with raw values

  • Private variables

  • didSet observers

  • Adopting and conforming to a Protocol

  • UIPickerView

  • Switch statements

  • The amount of light minutes from Earth to all the other planets

If there ever comes a time when you will be delivering pizza in space, you will have a head start with this app. Maybe not; we first have to figure out a way to travel at the speed of light. Maybe you can figure that out!

The next and final chapter will have you creating another application to store your favorite movies. This application will work on generating a list and displaying it in a UITableViewController.
