Introduction


(Greg Wocher) #1

Greetings all,
I am new to the Swift language. I have a background in Windows development. I have developed a bit in C#, asp.net <http://asp.net/>, HTML, CSS, Java script and Java. I have a degree in Computer Information Systems. I am also blind and use Voiceover on my Mac. I have recently switched to the Mac from Windows. I do have a quick question. Is it possible to develop web apps using Swift similar to what you can do with asp.net <http://asp.net/> and visual studio on the Windows side?

Regards,
Greg Wocher

I’m not a web developer, but have you taken a look at third-party frameworks like Vapor <https://github.com/vapor/vapor>?

Hi Greg,

There are a number of efforts underway to support Swift development on the
server.

At IBM, we have been developing an offering called Kitura (You can get more
information at https://developer.ibm.com/swift/ & http://www.kitura.io)

Others include Vapor, Perfect, Zewo, and many more.

Please let me know if you encounter any issues regarding accessibility on
the sites. With that said, I will connect with our accessibility team to
have them give us a review as well.

Good luck and let me know if you need anything.
