It’s that time of year again, and we have such a limited time!
The Swift Student Challenge is on and it’s a great opportunity to push yourself to create something of which you can really be proud.
Now, the deadline is April 24th at midnight (Pacific time, but, as I say in the video, I would encourage you to push for your own local midnight… something always goes sideways at the end and you want to have plenty of time).
The challenge, this year, is centered around Swift Playgrounds 4, and its ability to build full-fledged apps!
I threw together a little video to help you read the T&Cs and maybe find a path towards an app you can really get stuck into. Check it out here:
