Hello CodeCrew,

My name is David (Dave, either one). I’ve done little of everything throughout the years, from carpentry to truck driving, and a lot of my Plan B… nursing. I currently have a very small home health agency, and am also working with a startup here in Pennsylvania.

A few years ago I decided to begin what I called my BSIDK: Bachelors In Stuff I Don’t Know. What began with welding and small engine repair has eventually led to building a restaurant app that I’ve wanted for years and building a better way of record keeping for my agency.

Outside of using an iPhone, I’m really green when it comes to computers, so I’m looking forward to many hours of frustration and horror because I can’t perform the simplest task or find something on the screen. At least I won’t have the guilt of being on the clock.

HI, Girija! Thanks for making a wise decision. Start with our free YouTube tutorials about Swift. Just check out our channel because we have playlists there that you can watch in order. And it’s important to start applying what you are learning. So get your Mac computer ready and download Xcode. Have fun, and welcome to the CodeCrew fam!

Hello Code Crew. My name is Simon, I am an electrical engineer and have some experience with coding from my years in college. I just finished the 10 lesson series and I must say, if I had you as a professor in college I might have become a CS major instead. I am currently working on an app in my spare time with a few friends, we are going to build a small company around it for fun. If things work out with it, fantastic. If things do not, I will be able to say that I have a published app, maybe more than one. I look forward to taking the course that you have to offer here.

Thanks for allowing me to introduce myself,

Greetings, everyone. I joined primarily to thank Chris for his gentle, clear, encouraging, step-by-step approach. I am having a lot of fun coding my own projects now.
I started programing the Mac in the late 1980’s or early 1990’s. I used HyperCard and procedural Pascal. I created several shareware programs.

Until I took Chris’ courses, I was completely flummoxed by object oriented programing and I really didn’t like Objective-C. Swift feels a lot more comfortable and I have the confidence to keep coding to get the apps I want to use myself.

Like Mark, I am an ordained Christian minister (over 40 years). I served in Kenya for over a decade and I love Muslims.

I’m looking forward to getting to know and learning from all of you!
