Kitura is a high performance, easy to use web framework written in Swift 3.
With Kitura you can quickly build a web app on macOS or Linux, and deploy it to the cloud.
Join this workshop to explore server-side Swift hands on with the development team who wrote Kitura, and learn why Swift might be a great choice for your next backend project.
Ian and Chris will cover setting up Kitura, writing a simple app, connecting it to a database, and deploying to the cloud. You'll learn new skills to take your Swift knowledge to the next level.
IMPORTANT If you're running macOS, you will need to install the latest Xcode 8 in advance. Participants running Linux do not need to install anything. Participants running Windows... cannot participate :-)
