The Swift Accelerator Programme is an intensive talent development programme for secondary school students with an interest and aptitude for app development and computational thinking. Over 8 months, participants learn to code in Swift, and apply story-telling and design thinking principles to design, build, and release an iOS app of their own.
First launched in 2018 by IMDA and Apple, the programme has helped develop three selected groups of young coders in 2018, 2019, and 2020, by giving them the space, opportunity, and guidance in coding, story-telling, and design thinking, in order to help them take their passion to the next level.
The programme is fully subsidised for successful applicants. We look forward to welcoming the Class of 2021.
Swift Innovators' Summit
The culmination of each year's programme, the Swift Innovators’ Summit celebrates months of learning with a student developer conference and a public showcase of student-created iOS apps.
