Move view with keyboard using Swift

I have an app that has a text field on the lower half of the view.
This means that when I go to type in the text field the keyboard covers the textfield.

How would I go about moving the view upwards while typing so I can see what i'm typing and then moving it back down to its original place when the keyboard disappears?

I've looked everywhere but all the solutions appear to be in Obj-C which I can't quite convert just yet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Having fixed values will cause wrong behaviors depending on the device it's running, in order to make it universal you must use the Keyboard height:

override func viewDidLoad() {
        super.viewDidLoad()


        NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter().addObserver(self, selector: Selector("keyboardWillShow:"), name: UIKeyboardWillShowNotification, object: nil)
        NSNotificationCenter.defaultCenter().addObserver(self, selector: Selector("keyboardWillHide:"), name: UIKeyboardWillHideNotification, object: nil)

    }


    func keyboardWillShow(notification: NSNotification) {

        if let keyboardSize = (notification.userInfo?[UIKeyboardFrameBeginUserInfoKey] as? NSValue)?.CGRectValue() {
            self.view.frame.origin.y -= keyboardSize.height
        }

    }

    func keyboardWillHide(notification: NSNotification) {
        if let keyboardSize = (notification.userInfo?[UIKeyboardFrameBeginUserInfoKey] as? NSValue)?.CGRectValue() {
            self.view.frame.origin.y += keyboardSize.height
        }
    }
