Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
Swift 2.0 or Swift courses?
So i recently started learning Swift and iOS development. But I've got a question;
Is the Swift 2.0 Track a top-up or a follow-op on what has changed? Or do you learn everything from scratch as in the original Swift course/track?
If its a complete course why is the old/original course still there? I feel like I've wasted my time and energy on getting angry with syntax that doesn't exist anymore in Swift 1 and therefore giving me a headache hehe...
Real question is, should i switch to Swift 2.0 track og continue with Swift 1.0 track and complete that first and foremost?

I agree, you should switch.
However, I did find it very useful, once I was finished the Swift 2 track to go back and finish the original track. There is much overlap, but also quite a bit of new information that isn't taught yet in Swift 2. These topics will eventually be taught in the Swift 2 track, as there are multiple lessons still in production to be eventually released. So, if you have the time, the original is worth it (in my opinion), but only after you complete the Swift 2.
Yes, you should switch to Swift 2.0. It's a complete course in the new version of Swift. Since it covers the same ground you won't miss anything by switching.
