Introduction

2:33 Free
The primary way that you solve problems in Swift is using the type system. Explore what a type is in this video.
1

Equality

3:54
Just as you "eat your vegetables", you should implement equality. Thanks to Swift automatic conformance this is usually easy but there are some caveats.
2

Hashable

3:55
Hashable also gets automatic conformance in many cases. Find out what to watch out for in this video.

Phantom Types

4:05 Free
Using phantom types is a great, light-weight way to prevent run time errors. Learn what phantom types are and how to use them.
4
The best way to prevent getting into an invalid state is by making it unrepresentable. You will do just that in this challenge.
5
A powerful feature of Swift is its ability to define custom operators. This great power demands great responsibility.
6
Are you ready to make a custom operator of your own? Get practice creating a custom range operator in this challenge.
