Swift is the latest language developed by Apple for usage with their various system architectures in place of more unwieldy C or Objective-C code-bases. It has been created with the latest modern features and developed completely open-source. Swift’s goal is to adopt safe programming patterns from established languages while making day-to-day programming easier, more flexible and overall fun. Voted one of the most loved languages in the recent StackOverflow Developer’s Survey 2017.

Swift works great on Apple platforms, but what’s also great is that it can now be used on Linux. Members of the community are also taking things further and utilizing Swift on Android so you can imagine there’s a lot of growing opportunities for sharing functionality. Plus, iOS tends to have more sophisticated tools, less fragmentation and supports a user-base that is more active on newer versions vs. older, thus support for older devices aren’t as needed. This makes it easier for beginners just learning to code for mobile devices.
Not only does Swift work great with Apple platforms, but it can now be used on Linux and can also be used on Android platforms.
With the addition of type inference and additional external parameter, many statements when written as Swift are inherently self-documenting with no additional thought or planning needed by the programmer.
Swift was developed with many of the styles in classical scripting such as Python in mind. As such construction of statements and code flow is natural even to someone with a minimal exposure to coding.
Since its debut in 2014, Swift has quickly become one of the most in-demand programming languages and has made it to the Top 10 list, making it a favorite of companies of, not only Apple, but IBM, Zillow, Lyft and more.
