Free Swift iOS and tvOS Tutorial – How to Program Generics with Swift

Free Swift iOS and tvOS Tutorial – How to Program Generics with Swift
May 17, 2016 Justin

In this video tutorial we’ll look at how to use Generics in a Swift function. A generic function or method works on collections of different types. Or to put it another way, a function could accept different parameter types when called.  In this lesson we’ll use two simple types, String and Int. Like many of our previous Swift tutorial video podcasts, we’ll work in an iOS Playground file, but this same code works fine in any Swift based project: Mac, tvOS, iOS.

This video is from CartoonSmart’s Video Tutorial Podcast, so keep in mind, this is as much for fun as it is for education. But you’ll probably learn way more than you thought!
