Apple brings Everyone Can Code program to over 20 schools outside US — Apple has announced that its Everyone Can Code initiative is expanding to more than 20 colleges and universities beyond US borders, allowing students to pursue the company’s App Development With Swift curriculum in a full-year course.
The material was designed by Apple engineers in tandem with educators, and is presumably meant to entrench Swift as a platform. Though it can be used on Linux, Swift is mostly Apple-centric, meant to build apps for macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.
The list includes Unitec Institute of Technology in Auckland, New Zealand, RMITm in Australia, Mercantec in Denmark, Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nijmegen in the Netherlands and Plymouth University in the UK.
