I just learned of (and backed) a Kickstarter campaign to learn Swift and iOS 8 programming. It's being run by a friend and colleague of mine, named Paul Solt. He's an award-winning app developer and a great instructor. I've had the opportunity to attend live training from him, and he's offered video training before, also via Kickstarter, with great success.
Even though I know Objective C, I was able to pick up useful tips from his previous class, and since I have no background in Swift, I'm looking forward to a formal introduction. The class will take learners through the entire process of building several apps, so it's fine for beginners. In fact, almost all of us are beginners, because Swift was just introduced at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in June. Kudos to Paul for ramping up and sharing his knowledge!
There are actually three courses available. Course 1 is Swift and iOS 8 Apps in 31 Days, Course 2 is iPhone Games with Sprite Kit in 31 Days, and Course 3 is Real World App Experience. If you're interested in making iOS games, check out Course 2 and learn how Paul's company created Bomb Dodge. All developers who want to make money on apps will be interested in Course 3, Real World App Experience.
