Will there be a course on Apple's new language Swift?

I know that there is Objective C but now that Apple has come out with swift, will there be a course on that?

see the Swift FAQ for any questions about swift and treehouse

From the FAQ:

Q. When will you have a course on Swift?

A. Apple has a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) on all new technologies they announce at WWDC, which means nobody can publicly talk about them until the official release of iOS in the fall. We could have a course swiftly, however if it falls under the NDA then we can't release it until the public release of iOS.

"We could have a course swiftly" - I see what you did there!

I noticed that too haha, not sure if it was intentional or not.

I am really looking forward to the IOS8 hoping the official announcement of Swift. For a ruby developer, learning Objective-C is similar to a native simplified Chinese speaker learning archaic Tang Dynasty traditional Chinese.

I really enjoy developing iPhone apps, but I find Objective-C (or C in general) tedious. I started reading the Swift e-book and it seems much easier. I really look forward to Swift lessons, including how to transition from Objective-C to Swift, and how to mix both languages from an existing app.
