Server API Development in Swift, Kitura, & Bluemix

Build REST APIs in Swift

Course Description

Welcome to Server API Development in Swift, Kitura, & Bluemix.


It can be tough learning many different languages for both front-end and back-end development. Why not make life so much easier and program everything in Swift? Here are a few reason why you should learn Kitura with Swift:

  1. You can build an API that supports all platforms (Firebase only supports iOS/Android – not tvOS or macOS)
  2. You can become a full stack-engineer without having to learn another programming language
  3. Knowing back-end API development will give you a competitive advantage in applying for jobs
  4. You can build an API and database for your own app ideas
  5. Lower learning curve to get a back-end up vs learning Node or Rails or Django or PHP
