Swift is the new language to write apps for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. It can even be used to write for Android and .NET. In this session, we’ll do a language intro while writing the basics of an iPhone app using Swift, and have a look into:
- Should I use Swift or Objective-C?
- What new best practices can we learn from Swift
- What’s this about unboxing optionals?
- What’s this about functional?
- Mixing and matching Swift, Objective-C, C, C++

If any of this sounds scary or interesting, you should absolutely come. No prior iOS development experience, Objective-C experience or Swift experience needed. All that is required is that you have done some kind of programming.

Niklas Saers is a software pilot at Trifork, and has written for iOS devices since the first beta of iPhoneOS 2.0 back in 2008. While very interested in the fundamentals, his approach to technology is “how can we use this stuff to make a better user experience”, including executing performance, code maintainability, battery life, and user feedback, that lead to the level of polish and refinement we expect from a good mobile app.

Niklas has a Cand. Scient degree in Software Engineering from the University of Oslo, and has a Candidate degree in Early Music from Syddansk Musikkonservatorium, and has 17 years of professional software development behind him to date.
