  • Course Swift Programming : Content

    In the course Swift Programming participants learn the basics of the powerful and intuitive Swift programming language developed by Apple for creating apps for iOS, Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch. Swift is a modern language, easy to use and open source.

    Swift Intro

    After an introduction to the XCode development environment, the playground projects and the iOS projects, the syntax of the Swift language is discussed. The relationship with the older Objective C language is also treated.

    Variables and Types

    Attention is paid to Swift versions of well-known C data types such as Int and Float. The course also covers the main Collection types, Array and Dictionary, and new advanced types such as tuples. Swift uses a lot of variables whose value should not change, making the code more secure and clear.

    Swift Syntax

    Next the Swift syntax is discussed, in which control flow with conditionals and loops and operators are covered. Functions and the transmission of parameters are also on the agenda.

    Classes and Objects

    Then it's time to treat classes with properties and methods. Unlike some other languages, in Swift it is not necessary to create separate interface and implementation files for classes.

    iOS App Architecture

    The schedule of the Swift Programming course also covers how the Swift language is used in the development of iOS Apps. This includes the architecture of iOS Apps with Models, Views, Controller, IBOutlets and IBActions.

    Views and Controls

    The course concludes with a treatment of Interface Builder and the various controls and views that can be used in iOS Apps.

    Audience Swift Programming Course

    The course Swift Programming is designed for participants who want to learn the basics of the newest version of Apple's programming language Swift for iOS apps.

    Prerequisites Course Swift Programming

    No programming knowledge is required to participate in the course Swift Programming. Prior knowledge of other programming languages such as Objective C, Java or JavaScript is beneficial for the understanding.

    Realization Training Swift Programming

    The theory is treated on the basis of presentations. Demos are used to explain the theory. There is ample opportunity to practice and theory and exercises are interspersed. The course uses the newest version of the XCode development environment.

    Certification Swift Programming

    After successful completion of the course participants receive an official certificate Swift Programming.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
