For year’s, as a developer, I’ve known the frustrations associated with developing iOS apps and having to code in the dreaded Objective-C. When Objective-C first came about it was revolutionary. It completely outperformed its predecessor, python. But now Apple have something new. Something that they claim is Objective-C…..without the C. It’s called swift and rightfully so. Swift speeds onto our iDevices at an impressive 220x quicker.
Key Swift features include :
- Type Inferences
- Multiple Return Types
- Name Faces
Plus many more on top of this that we will find out about as development gets heavier on the platform.
