Great tutorial! One question: I have not worked with UIKit, but am interested now since Swift has released. Where would a good starting place be to learn UIKit? Thanks

Thanks for the Vid Brian,
When I try and use the playground I have 

import Cocoa

I tried to replace it with the import statement that you had in your “playground” file

to import UIKit but it just comes up as an error “No such module ‘UIKit'”
Any ideas what im doing wring?

Samar Mathur says:

Hi, I’m trying to follow your tutorial (I have very little experience with Objective C) and when I type in “var myview:UIView = UIView()”

I get the error: Use of undeclared type ‘UIView’

What could be the problem here?

Brian Advent says:

If you get the error: Use of undeclared type ‘UIView’ make sure that you import UIKit at the top of your Playground. If that doesn’t help you get the UIKit import when you create a Playground using File->New instead of “Get started with a playground” in the welcome screen.
