Apple debuts new programming language for iOS: Swift
« on: June 03, 2014, 09:24:15 PM »
Mommy!  All my friends have at least two languages, can't we get another one, too?  Please?  Huh?  Can we, huh?

Swift is a new programming language for iOS and OS X apps that builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an opportunity to reimagine how software development works.


And a free ebook on the language can be downloaded via iTunes here -> https://itunes.apple...ok/id881256329?mt=11

Apple cited speed as a key attribute of its Swift programming language when it was introduced last week. But developers who have independently run tests on the new language have found it lacking in performance in some instances.
