    The talk covered enough of Swift to get a feel for what's new and interesting.
    The best part was the context, framing Swift within the Apple development ecosystem.
    It was helpful to hear Aditya tell us what was not changing and how Objective-C and Swift will co-exist and hopefully play nice together.

    The meetup was ok and not great. could be must better to focus how to build a solid infrastructure for your own project dev. REPL should be the main dev playgound. That is where the tool shines. programming syntax can easily be learned. Since swift is pretty much borrow a lot of concepts from modern languages (c#, Typescript, js, etc...). Experience programmers could pick it up in no time. Just my 2 cents of thought!

      Thanks Nam for the feedback. This meetup is geared towards beginners, intermediates, and professionals so we have to stick with something that can be understood by all. Our classes are structured much differently.
