Hello my name is Derek Jensen and I wanna welcome you to Up and Running With Swift 2 brought to you by your friends here at Tuts+. Now even though Swift is a very young language it has really been picking up steam in the developer community because of its flexibility and its adoption of modern programming language features. Not to mention Apple is really investing heavily in its development as their flagship programming language of the future. Now recently, at their worldwide developer conference, Apple announced a ton of new features being added to the language. Now some of these features include a brand new error handling model, enhancements to pattern matching, protocol extensions, availability checking and a whole slew of others.
