These are awesome videos!
An excellent companion to the IOS app!
The videos do a good job of demonstrating the key concepts and challenges faced in the Swift Playground App. I gained significant clarity about some of the coding concepts that I had not yet fully grasped.
Well produced, comprehensive logic skills. Best start to finish I've seen.
