Want to design and develop iOS apps, even if you have little or no programming experience? This video course will show you how. By eliminating the jargon, host Steve Derico teaches you the programming basics and iOS 8 building blocks necessary to build multi-screen apps. You’ll learn how to submit your app to the Apple Store, and get tips for tracking, marketing, and updating it.

I'm an experienced C++ / Objective-C Developer that was looking for a quick introduction to Swift, and the video delivered. The short chapters provide great overviews and examples of developing small iOS 8 apps using Swift. If you're looking for in depth discussion of Swift or Xcode features, you won't find it here. Instead, you'll get a great overview of many topics suitable for both beginner and those developers relatively new to Swift.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
