Excited about this Podcast! Brian is brilliant!
I am very excited about Brian Foutty starting this podcast. He is a brilliant educator and leader and he knows Swift. This is just the resource I need to help my students and myself with Swift. What a great idea! I am now subscribed.
Great resource for those new to coding
As an ELA teacher, I always thought coding was something for the math & science department. After playing with Swift Playgrounds for iOS, I realize the truth behind the statement "everyone can code." After only a few episodes, I know this podcast with will be a valuable resource on quest to learn coding.
Wonderful interview of folks at Workflow
In the most recent podcast, Brian does a great job of interviewing the founders and inventors of the Workflow iOS app. Nick Frey, Conrad Kramer, and Ari Weinstein tell a great story of how they got together and built one of the few apps to be acquired by Apple.
Brian does a great job exploring programming in education.
