The last day of apple’s WWDC 2016 had not much for store and had no announcements. The CEO Tim Cook gave a shout-out to Anvitha Vijay, the youngest ever developer to attend WWDC. This young 9 year old developer, Vijay applied for and won one of 350 coveted Apple scholarships to attend the conference’s coding and programming sessions, which are typically dominated by high school and college students.
Vijay is progressed to Apple’s more advanced Swift programming language to develop a new app she’s calling GoalsHi, which aims to give students more confidence in the classroom.
The company also revealed a new educational app called “Swift Playgrounds“, which aims to introduce users to a new way to learn to code with Swift on an iPad. The free app, is due to be released with iOS 10 this fall, features custom “learn to code” lessons that focus on crafting visual cues around numeric coding data to slowly introduce kids into the world of coding.
All iPad Air and iPad Pro models will be compatible with the app, as well as iPad mini 2-and-later devices.
