  • What a fun way to learn Swift! I loved the examples and use of pop culture and emojis. I learned a lot!

  • This course was very descriptive in what you had to do to complete a project, and did a good job of letting you have freedom in what you create in projects, giving you a good bit of space to mess around and experiment with your coding skills in Swift.

  • I enjoyed each and every section of the course. It gave me so much confidence and I am glad it is in text form so that whenever I have a doubt, I can easily refer to the respective topic instead of having to play an entire video.
