Jump straight in?

Hi There,

I love learning Swift, But I don't have a lot of time on my hands and I don't really enjoy going through all these tedious tutorials with no end-project in sight, would you recommend just jumping straight into the Treehouse swift projects? And referring back to the sub tutorials on specific parts of Swift, Or following the track exactly?

Yes. Do it and don't look back. Tutorials only teach you so much. I would even recommend just coming up with an app and just trying to build it. Even you don't finish it, you will learn much more than you can from tutorials.

Thank you!, I appreciate the answer :) So do you mean - just coming up with something...simple and piecing the black box together from various tutorials/tips?

Yep. You will be surprised how much you learn just by trying and googling stuff.

You can always reference Swift documentation as you build.
