Swift : The New Programming Language From Apple

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 :

  • Closures
  • Generics
  • 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.
