Apple's Swift

Tim Steven's post - Apple's Swift explained is the best I have seen in terms of putting the new programming language Swift into context.

The biggest announcement for developers by far was Swift, a wholly new programming language intended to not only make writing those apps much easier, but also faster and more stable, while creating results that perform better in the end. Basically, it's promising to be all things to all coders. Is that possible?

That remains to be seen, but from what I saw today, it looks like it has potential. Join me as I break down what Swift is and what it means. Trust me, I'm a developer -- or at least I used to be.

I wonder how many people on hearing of Swift will vow to themselves - "I never really nailed Objective C, but, I'm really going to master Swift."

It's quite cool that the playing field gets levelled from time to time.
