Probably the most surprising thing that came out of Apple's WWDC keynote this year is Apple's upcoming Swift Playground application. The app which will be available later this year on the App Store as a free download is aimed at children.

This new app is Apple's initiative to educate the next generation on how to read and write code. Through the free app, children or anyone can write code through the tutorials which include nice graphics to educate them about the fundamentals of programming like loops and variables. Besides that, there is also a 'playground' mode that is like a sandbox mode where you can experiment with the code without any boundaries

At launch, Apple will be the sole provider of the programming lessons but Apple is opening up the app to educators for them to create individual lessons through Xcode.
