Everyone knows that Swift is a great language to develop mobile apps in, but have you considered using Swift on the backend too? Come and join iOSCon Bytes and Ian Partridge to find out more about server-side Swift!
Since Swift was open-sourced a great server-side community has grown, with exciting options to let you use Swift throughout your entire project. Swift performs great on Linux, and can easily be deployed to the cloud.
Join this talk to learn why server-side Swift is the current hot topic, and how to get started. You will explore how to create your first Swift web app using the Kitura framework, and connect it up to a backend database - all in Swift!
