Well, there is no end. But it's a path to move us forward. Is that not what we all want? So join us. Learning the code was not too difficult. I began using an app on the iPhone for that. There are a number fo online options to use as well and I will include it in a separate post for us beginners. And if you have an iPad or a Mac, Apple has generously offered an apple called Playgrounds that made coding so basic and fun that it is essentially a game. I started using an app called Code! Learn Swift ( link ). First, I want to let you know that the app is free to download and use. The first two lessons are also free. After that, you ha
