Soon after the Swift announcement last year, I decided to start writing a series of introductory tutorials for busy people who did not want to wade through the exhaustive official documentation.
The site launched as learn-swift.co and managed to draw a few hundred subscribers across Twitter, RSS, and email. After writing the initial batch of posts covering most of the basic concepts, I decided to take a pause to figure out the next steps.
Fast forward a year later. Swift 2.0 is almost out of beta and—better yet—is scheduled to go open-source by the end of the year. To celebrate the occasion, I decided to resume where I left off a year ago.
Today I’m happy to relaunch the site as Swiftbits. Here’s a rundown of the most salient changes:
New design, including a new logo.
New RSS feed. Re-subscribe here.
All tutorials were updated for Swift 2.0 and grouped under their own category.
New code examples. Bonus points if you get all the references.
The exact version against which the code samples were compiled can be visible at the top of each tutorial.
Playgrounds were replaced with Swift source code; it’s more versatile and comes with less overhead.
Follow Swiftbits on Twitter to stay in the loop.
