I think right now the issue is that Swift is ever changing. I have been following several developers that focus on swift outside of the Treehouse scope of things. As swift continues to evolve the content and videos must also evolve. I have jumped over and started getting a good grasp on OBJ-C as many iOS devs have told me to go that route first. Have a good understanding of OBJ-C will be a good base as Swift becomes more mature. Some helpful swift sites for you:

I also follow a lot of Swift/iOS devs on twitter. With swift being so new they are constantly talking about changes and intermediate to advanced Swift.

Hope that helps,

Best of luck
