Why I made this page
Ever since the release of Swift I’ve been working hard to produce great content to help the rest of the community get acclimated to the new language. I’ve shared my very first experiences with the language in the form of a comprehensive tutorial, discussed how to write Swift from the command line, talked about making network requests, and provided updates on topics that changed since the initial release. This page is the opposite of that, I want to exclusively share only the work of others. If you do want to read more about my work, feel free to navigate around the site, or check out my upcoming book. This page is about giving back to the people who have been sharing content for free to help us all learn. Thank you to these authors.
