Welcome to the Introduction to Server Side Swift Workshop! 

This workshop is designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of backend development using the Vapor framework. From setting up Vapor on your machine to integrating it with databases, we'll guide you through each step with practical, hands-on projects.

By the end of this workshop, you'll have gained the essential skills to set up your own server and seamlessly integrate it into your iOS applications.


Explore the foundational concepts of routing and endpoint organization. This includes understanding how to extract parameters from URLs and query strings, as well as grouping routes for improved management and clarity.

MVC Pattern

Explore the MVC (Model-View-Controller) design pattern to elevate the quality of your backend Vapor code. Discover how to systematically segregate your data logic (Model), presentation layer (View), and application logic (Controller) to enhance maintainability and scalability. Embrace MVC principles to streamline your codebase and foster cleaner, more efficient development practices.

Database Integration

Discover the intricacies of integrating your server with a database, enabling efficient data management and retrieval for your applications. Gain proficiency in connecting your server to various database systems and implementing CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations to effectively interact with your data.

Consuming API

Learn how to seamlessly integrate your SwiftUI application with your custom Vapor server. Explore the implementation of CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations utilizing a generic HTTP client layer. Through this process, you'll gain practical experience in establishing communication between your front-end SwiftUI app and the back-end server, enabling efficient data manipulation and management.
