Apple Releases Playground for WWDC Swift Intro

Late last week Apple released the “Ballons” Xcode 6 playground that was shown at WWDC 2014 with the original introduction to Swift.

Now you can learn how the special effects were done with this tutorial version of ‘Balloons.playground’, which includes documentation and suggestions for experimentation. This playground uses new features of SpriteKit and requires the latest beta versions of Xcode 6 and OS X Yosemite.

This is a very good starting point to dive into Swift, including a few cool animation features.
