A Swift Introduction to Swift
TALK – VIEW SLIDES
Last year Apple announced a brand new programming language as a modern replacement for the venerable Objective-C. Swift makes a very interesting study in language design – influenced by modern statically-typed languages with an emphasis on safety and speed, but (almost) seamlessly compatible with the unsafe, dynamic, weakly-typed OO language it needs to co-exist with.
Sam will run through a brief introduction to the language, highlighting some of the design choices and tradeoffs made, and show how to use the language features to write better code.
