Swift, new programming language


Recently Apple announces Swift, a new programming language.

Apple today announced a new programming language called Swift at WWDC, which will replace Objective C as the language developers use for building iOS and OS X apps.

Craig Federighi announced the new language on stage saying, “We’ve used Objective-C for 20 years, and we love it. But we wondered what we could do without the baggage of C.”

Federighi confirmed that Swift code and C can live in the same app together, too, so developers can upgrade their code as they go, rather than replacing it in one go.

 

Apple has published an eBook on Swift, which can be downloaded for free, here.

I’ve been hunting for more on the language or a way to try it out but the best I’ve gotten is their free download of the eBook. I’ll post more as I find it!
