In May, Apple launched a free app development curriculum that includes around 180 hours of training as well as lesson plans, exercises and instruction guides. Today, the company has announced that over 30 community colleges across the US have incorporated the App Development with Swift curriculum into their course offerings for the upcoming school year. Colleges that will offer the course include institutions in Mississippi, Kansas and Alabama, among others. Austin Community College District, which has 11 campuses in eight counties and serves 74,000 students, is also one of the schools that has adopted the curriculum. "We're thrilled to have Apple join our mission to make Austin more affordable for people who already live in the city," Austin Mayor Steve Adler said in a statement.
