Swift Calculator

The code : github

This is my first project in Swift, the newest language I am learning. Swift is a whole new animal but the more I learn, the more it is similar to languages like Ruby and Javascript. This is a homework assignment from the Stanford Swift iTunes U class. Navigating Xcode is a challenge and getting used to the syntax of the code is quite difficult but the more I use it, the more I seem to like it. In this project, I learned all the basics of Swift and Xcode.


  • Navigation Controller
  • Split View Controller
  • Auto layout

  • Swift:

  • Closures
  • Classes
  • MVC's in Swift
  • Functions
  • Casting
  • Recursion
  • init
  • UIBeizerPath / Bounds / Gestures

It is pretty cool to see the app pop up on your phone and actually work like something you can download on the App Store. The next project will be a recipe app that uses an API I made in Rails.
