i don't understand why does the name has to be the first argument

that doesn't make sense, could you explain to me why does the name has to be the first parameter in the initializer?

Hi Mauro Javier Aguirre Sanroman

'name' doesn't have to be the first argument in the initialiser. for example

init(sides: Int, name: String)
    {
        self.name = name
        self.sides = sides
    }

is perfectly ok. This being said as a developer i find it easier if the variables are in alphabetical order, I presume that is why Amit Bijlani put name before sides.

hope that help
