Join South Bay Mobile User Group as Jon Flanders, iOS Engineer, Microsoft MVP and Pluralsight iOS instructor introduces us to Swift, a new language developed by Apple for building iOS and OSX applications.
Apple recently announced a pretty major change to the way iOS apps have been developed in the past, an entirely different programming language called Swift which "replaces" Objective-C as the future language of choice for app developers, but builds on the experience of Objective-C, Ruby, and many other languages to create a modern, fast, type-safe language.
Swift feels familiar to Objective-C developers. It adopts the readability of Objective-C’s named parameters and the power of Objective-C’s dynamic object model. It provides seamless access to existing Cocoa frameworks and mix-and-match interoperability with Objective-C code. Building from this common ground, Swift introduces many new features and unifies the procedural and object-oriented portions of the language. Swift supports playgrounds, an innovative feature that allows programmers to experiment with Swift code and see the results immediately, without the overhead of building and running an app.
In this talk Jon will discuss the basics of Swift, and highlight some of the features that make it an attractive language to use.
