JOHNSON CITY – At the end of January, Johnson City Public Library (JCPL) will offer two six-week courses for teens ages 12-18 on Swift coding, which is a programming language used in millions of mobile applications. Participants register for either Monday or Friday sessions; Friday classes begin on January 25 and Monday classes start on January 28. The classes will be held in the library’s second floor board room from 4-5 p.m. Registration is required and can be completed by contacting Katelyn Wolfe at 423-434-4349 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The course will be taught by Logan Craft, JCPL’s system administrator and an ETSU computer science student with a concentration in information technology. Craft explains that “learning Swift programming is very useful because it’s the coding language that is used to design mobile applications for iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Macintosh. It’s a really important thing to learn, especially for young people interested in pursuing computer science.”
The library offered the same coding course last year. Craft says it was
such a success that the course is open to twice as many students this year; one
group will meet on Mondays and one on Fridays.
