I've been developing iOS apps for about a year now and am greatly indebted to the team at AppCoda. The Swift books I've purchased from them have dramatically increased my productivity and understanding of the entire Xcode and iOS development process. I've learned much more than I would ever have by scouring StackOverflow and GitHub for hours and hours, which is what I had been doing prior to deciding to use AppCoda. All of the information is updated and accurate, simple to read and follow, and the sample projects are fantastic. I really can't recommend these books highly enough. If you're trying to jump-start your Swift education, go for it.
This is just a sample. We will build over 40 different kinds of demo apps in this book.
