I noticed 2 Swift tracks available, Swift and Swift 2.0. Which course should I be taking?
I noticed 2 Swift tracks available, Swift and Swift 2.0. Which course should I be taking? And also, is it better to learn Swift or Objective C for IOS development?

Hey Handy Metellus,
If you're going to learn Swift, I suggest you start with the Swift 2.0 track. The Swift programming language is currently at version 2.2. There is a bit of syntax in the Swift 1.0 track that is no longer supported. As for deciding between learning Swift or Objective-C, both are important. If you have no prior programming experience I recommend you start with Swift. The syntax is easier to understand and theres a shorter learning curve. Many of the programming concepts will transfer over from Swift when you decide to learn Objective-C.
So there's no "better language" for that purpose?
