With HTML and coding becoming one of the most influential and important digital languages across the globe, Apple is hoping to help start consumers at a young age become familiar with the platform with its Swift coding program. The program is geared to adults and children alike, but with an ample focus on educating younger demographics from an early age about digital creation. The service is offered through an app that encourages young minds with gamified experiences and cartoon graphics.

Coding is a growing industry and a knowledge of the basics is vital to many adjacent mediums. The Swift platform educates children by giving them the tools and knowledge presented with animated characters and games. The program begins as a game and as the user learns and excels in age and skill, the lessons become more challenging and sophisticated.
