New Swift Challenge Cards available
The new Swift Path on the current CoderDojo resources site, Kata includes resources based on Swift, an intuitive programming language created by Apple for building apps for iOS. Included are Challenge cards for Swift Playgrounds, an app for iPads, designed for 11-14 years olds that makes learning to code interactive and fun. Using the Challenge cards, ninjas can design their own Traffic Light System, program the journey of the Titanic or even use ARKit in Swift Playgrounds to bring their favourite stories alive in the world of Augmented Reality.
In addition to these Challenge Cards, the Beginner Xcode Sushi cards can help Ninjas learn to build apps for iOS on Xcode using Swift.
At this years CoderDojo Community Conference, DojoCon, in Warrington, CoderDojo volunteers explored how Apple’s Everyone Can Code curriculum can be used by Ninjas to develop key coding skills. Mentors got hands on with the lessons in the Swift Playgrounds app on iPad. In the App Development with Swift session, mentors received an introduction to Xcode and explored projects from Apple’s App Development with Swift courses including QuestionBot, Meme Maker, and Rock, Paper, Scissors that Ninjas could try out in their local Dojo.
We would love to hear your feedback on these learning resources, so be sure to let us know what you think and how you get on with them in your Dojo either on this blog or on our forums here.
