This chapter provides an introduction to the Swift programming language. Swift is one of the more recent developments in the evolution of programming languages. In order to understand Swift, you need to first understand how computers (including iOS devices such as iPads or iPhones) work, and how the languages used to program them have evolved. After talking about computers and programs (including apps) in general, I’ll give an introduction to Swift and how you can use some of its basic features to create your first program.
