You then learn about all of the key language features like functions and closures, classes, methods, extensions, and how Swift works just as well as Objective-C when it comes to easy memory management with ARC.

Finally you’ll learn how to use Swift alongside Objective-C as well as with Core Data, and you’ll learn how to put all of the pieces together with a health app using Apple’s new HealthKit framework.
