Fee: rmb200; for xcj member rmb150.
Swift is a new programming language introduced by Apple in 2014 with the intent to gradually replace Objective-C. It allows developers to build applications for both OS X and iOS. In this class, you will learn the basics of Swift including built-in data types and data structures, control flow, basic input/output, error handling and more.
Requirements: MacBook with Xcode 6.1 or later. You can download Xcode for free from the Mac App Store.

计算和知识的未来 The Future of Computation and Knowledge

活动嘉宾:斯蒂芬·沃尔夫勒姆博士 Dr. Stephen Wolfram



About Speaker: Stephen Wolfram is a distinguished scientist, technologist and entrepreneur. He has devoted his career to the development and application of computational thinking.


His Mathematica software system launched in 1988 has been central to technical research and education for more than a generation. His work on basic science—summarized in his bestselling book A New Kind of Science—has defined a major new intellectual direction, with applications across the sciences, technology and the arts. In 2009 Wolfram built on his earlier work to launch Wolfram|Alpha to make as much of the world’s knowledge as possible computable—and accessible on the web and in intelligent assistants like Apple’s Siri.


In 2014, as a culmination of more than 30 years of work, Wolfram began to roll out the Wolfram Language, which dramatically raises the level of automation and built-in knowledge available in a programming language, and makes possible a new generation of readily deployed computational applications.



Stephen Wolfram has been the CEO of Wolfram Research since its founding in 1987. He was educated at Eton, Oxford and Caltech, receiving his PhD in theoretical physics at the age of 20. This is his first visit to China.
