Swift Playgrounds (@sfsooz)

Good review of Swift Playgrounds by Susie Ochs at Macworld:

Apple developed the curriculum for Swift Playgrounds itself, based on what its own software engineers think is the best way to learn software engineering. This isn’t a purely academic exercise: Swift Playgrounds is designed to get you thinking like a coder, decomposing problems and applying logic. “It’s made by Apple, by the people who write the real software,” said Tim Triemstra, who handles product marketing for Apple’s developer tools, “so we’re teaching programming how it’s actually done.”

I haven’t tried it yet, but this is pretty cool for kids, and sounds like it is at least fun and maybe even useful for adults who want to get started learning Swift.
