A fast new programming language from Apple.

Swift looks to be a more functional language with features taken from the likes of Python or Ruby. This could see a quicker learning curve which will result in a faster uptake for developers looking to create iOS apps.

 

Features:

  • Closures unified with function pointers
  • Tuples and multiple return values
  • Generics
  • Fast and concise iteration over a range or collection
  • Structs that support methods, extensions, protocols.
  • Functional programming patterns, e.g.: map and filter
