Can we follow the swift tutorial with an older version of xcode than 8 ?

I can not currently upgrade my mac to Sierra and get Xcode8 and have to wait for some other software I use that have known critical bugs on this OS to be perfectly fixed. Is it possible to follow the swift tutorial without Xcode8, or is there any way to get Xcode8 working on Yosemite?

Depends on what version of Swift you are trying to use. At a minimum Swift 2 requires Xcode 7 and Swift 3 requires Xcode 8.
