John Weatherford sleuthed out these Swift training materials published by Apple. (I found the link through MacStories.) I think Apple is going to push hard to make Swift a "beginning" programming language. Why not get people started on their platform? I'm pretty excited about this as a hobbyist. I've been working my way through the Lynda.com programming fundamentals and beginning Swift materials the past several months in my free time. I'm only a hobbyist but I still get a kick out of making things happen on my screens with a little bit of code.
