Apple has introduced a new open source programming language called SWIFT.Swift was released to public on June 6 2014.Swift took language ideas from Objective-C, Rust, Haskell, Ruby, Python, C#, CLU, and far too many others to list.Apple have introduced this language with intention to offer easier, simpler, more flexible, quicker, funnier and friendly to program than Objective-C to facilitate the applications development for platforms of Apple. The Swift’s syntax is more simplified because it does not use pointers and includes improvements in its data structures and in its syntax .The latest version of swift is Swift2.0.
10 Reason Why Swift will be future Programming Language:
- Swift is easier to read.
- Swift is easier to maintain.
- Swift is unified with memory management.
- Swift requires less code.
- Swift is faster.
- Fewer name collisions with open source projects.
- Swift supports dynamic libraries.
- Swift Playgrounds encourages interactive coding.
- Swift is a future you can influence.
The developer will write less line of code using swift,and the code are easily readable.Swift have introduced playground where the user can see the output of the code before they include in project. Swift is a more approachable full-featured programming language that will allow developers to not only build apps but also target embedded systems like the new lower-power Apple Watch for many years to come.
