Want to learn programming

Forums > Swift

Hi there, I am working on a tool based website. I need to learn programming to develop a tool for my site. Is it possible to learn my required things from HackingWithSwift?


@rogergray820 - yes , very view instructors teach so precise in so few words like Paul Hudson does, you will learn for sure ...


The Hacking with swift courses don't really teach you much about web development. They focus more on creating apps for iOS.

If you do learn the Swift programming language, it can be used for web development from what I understand. But it isn't a very common language to use for that sort of thing. It is mostly used for app development on Mac devices.

But, learning any programming language will give you skills that can be tranferred to other programming languages. So, if your goal is just to learn your first programming language it is a great course to follow for that.

There is a book available on this website that might end up being more helpful for your eventual goals, but I haven't read it myself. Server-side Swift


Javascript is, by far, the most important language to learn for web design. And it also is one of the simplest, so a good place to start.

Swift is not very useful except for developing apps for Apple products.
