At this years WWDC, Apple announced a new and powerful programming language called Swift. Swift will eventually replace Objective-C in iOS and OSX development. It's clear that with Swift, Apple is trying to incorporate many of the features that people like in many other modern programming languages, such as Python, Ruby and particularly Java.
Swift is a fun and flexible language that should still feel very familiar to current Objective-C programmers but without the common barrier to entry that many programmers have felt historically when it came to learning Objective-C.
This month our speaker, Jon Flanders, will take us through an introduction of Swift and show us some of the new features in Xcode as well as Playgrounds: the new development interface that allows developers to experiment with code and get the results in real-time without having to compile and test.
The meeting is held in the One West Bank building located on the corner of Walnut and Lake in Pasadena, Ca. Parking is validated for you so pull into the covered parking structure and remember to bring your parking ticket with you to the meeting.
