large_Swift-logo.pngSwift is a open-source programming language for iOS, macOS, Linux, watchOS, and tvOS apps that builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an opportunity to reimagine how software development works.

If you're interested in coding along during the meetup, check out this tutorial to get set up.

And here is the official Swift download page that includes binaries for some Ubuntu distributions.

Location: 

300 Rockefeller Hall, Vassar College

MHVLUG returns to Rockefeller Hall for the 2016-2017 Vassar Academic year. The best parking on site is the north lot of campus, which is accessible off of Collegeview Ave in Poughkeepsie. Once you are parked in the north lot walk south along North Drive. Rockefeller Hall is on the right, somewhat set back, as you walk down the main stretch. Enter the hall and go to the third floor. Room 300 is at the top of the stairs. The room will be open at 5pm, and people are welcome to come early.
 
When in doubt, use the map for reference.
