Learn Swift for Beginners – Ep 7 – Functions Part 1

This Learn Swift series is designed for beginners with NO programming experience. It uses the latest version of Swift 3 and Xcode 8.

In this lesson we talk about using functions to create blocks of code that you can execute on demand!

If you’ve ever wanted to learn Swift programming and build your own apps, this is it! Hands on training with PDF lesson notes and cheat sheet… Follow along! It’s the best way to learn!

I’ll be in the comments to help you along as you learn about Swift concepts such as variables, data types, if statements, loops, classes and more!

This free Swift tutorial series is best paired with my How To Make An App with No Programming Experience series which can be found here:

Hi I’m Chris! I’m dedicated to teaching fundamentals about how to make an app. This is important if you’re trying to land an iOS job, be a freelancer, increase or start a business with an app idea. On the site, you’ll find a ton of free resources and tutorials to aid you on your journey to learn iOS development. Many people have successfully picked up Swift 4, Xcode 9 and app building from my course and materials!

Here’s just a sample of the success stories my students have sent in:

Very well explained Chris!

First comment 🙂

Darius Scott says:

Chris, I would like to take the time to say you’re the man because so far I’ve been teaching myself and using the free iBooks for Xcode/Swift but I ran into a hiccup when using functions (which you stated is covered in part 2) but man watching this part one makes me regret skipping over your video when I first got into programming a few years back.

thanks my dear friend ^^

GamerGuy95 says:

I know this is an older video, but I am new to these series. I am pretty well versed in Java, and I see many similarities. Swift definitely seems like a much looser easier language which I am loving. My question is: is a function is basically a method in Java? Thanks Chris and keep the series going strong. You rock!

Alex Barta-Dougall says:

Great videos i will make an app with these

CodeWithChris says:

In this video you’ll be introduced to functions in Swift!

Gracjan Nowak says:

Thanks a lot for this series. I love it! This is the best series for learning Swift on Youtube! Can you do another one specifically for making Mac app (most courses are for iOS)?

William Covington says:

I just started learning Swift 3.0. My first exposure to fully learning a specific programming language (I’ve merely tinkered with Ruby and Linux scripting)

Heck I just got the Apple 6s Plus 3 months ago and love it compared to Android. Now with all the latest stuff from this year’s WWDC – whoa!

Chris your videos are perfect! I stay exposed to Swift coding with MIMO on my phone, doing all the playground training on the iPAD app. and now I’m going to buy a Mac laptop (MacBook Pro) … but waiting on the 2017 models to ship out completely to my area.

So thanks – that’s my story and Chris you are helping me right along. Well done!!!

anhurry says:

Totally THUMBS UP!

BBZ 900 says:

Great Lessons! Thank You!

MonsterBird says:

when do you think i can make apps without any help……….do i need to learn all your lessons to make an basic app?

Morris Mitchell says:

there are amazing, you should be getting paid!

Ion M says:

sivan ferna says:

yay I understood everything, best teacher on youtube by far

Maks Lindegaard says:

Love the tutorials! Do you think that in the “Learn Swift For beginners” guide, you are going to show these types of code that you have learned us, in an Xcode application? 🙂

pratik gupta says:

Nice tutorial like it!!! please upload more videos
And complicated challenges

tyler swift says:

I’ve paid hundreds on online courses and have learned more in your first 7 FREE lectures than I have in over 100 hours of paid tutorials. You should be getting paid for these. Great job!

Amal Vatsa says:
