Apple on Wednesday released a free college-level computer coding course designed to teach students how to create apps, a move that’s part of the company’s push to highlight its role in the U.S. economy. The one-year curriculum is called App Development With Swift. Swift is a programming language used for Apple apps and devices. Apple is offering the curriculum free on its iBooks Store, but has lined up six community college systems around the nation, including the San Mateo County Community College District, to use the course. CEO Tim Cook announced a $1 billion fund this month designed to create more U.S. manufacturing jobs. The announcement came amid criticism by President Trump of Silicon Valley’s reliance on overseas factories.
