Swift quickly became the dominant language for iOS app development not long after Apple introduced the language in 2014. When Swift moved to open source, extending this modern language from client to server side became an option, and today, with Swift 3.0, companies can extend the value of Swift end-to-end. With this ebook, you’ll learn how to write your entire application in Swift—from mobile client to the middle tier to server-side database access.
