Created by engineers and educators at Apple, the full-year App Development with Swift course teaches students how to build apps using Swift, an open source programming language that emphasizes safety, performance and modern software design patterns. The course takes students with no programming experience and enables them to build fully-functional apps of their own design.

The Austin Community College District (ACC), one of the nation’s largest higher learning institutions, will begin offering the course to its 74,000 students this fall.

“We’ve seen firsthand how Apple’s app ecosystem has transformed the global economy, creating entire new industries and supporting millions of jobs,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We believe passionately that same opportunity should be extended to everyone, and community colleges have a powerful reach into communities where education becomes the great equalizer.”

Other community colleges joining ACC in adding the curriculum for the fall include Northeast Mississippi Community College, Northwest Kansas Technical College and additional campuses in the Alabama Community College System.

Austin Mayor Steve Adler in a “tech town hall” meeting on Thursday had confirmed Cook would be in town on Friday to announce a nation-wide training program.
