Swift Development – How to Stay up to Date?

Swift has become a very popular language. It’s still fresh and because of that it changes a lot. At least once a year we have a big change of syntax caused by the release of a new version. And at the moment of writing this post we are at Swift 3.0. 

It’s pretty hard to follow all the changes to this language and read the latest documentation every time there is a change announced. So I would like to list the resources which I find most useful for all iOS/Swift developers:
