Swift: Introduction to Swift

Introduction to Swift:

Before getting into actual coding, let’s have a brief introduction to Swift. Apple’s Swift programming language is a strong and user-friendly general-purpose programming language. It’s development started in July of 2010 and is still going strong.

Because languages like Objective-C, Rust, Haskell, Ruby, Python, C#, and others provided a lot of inspiration for Swift. Swift’s concise yet expressive syntax makes it an ideal first language for newcomers, as well as a language that experienced developers enjoy switching to.

Its first version was introduced in 2014 with the goal of allowing developers to make apps for:

  • iOS
  • macOS
  • watchOS
  • tvOS
  • Linux

Hundreds of firms, including Uber and Slack, have used Swift as part of their software stack since then.

We’ll begin by studying the principles and concepts of Swift in this course.

Have fun coding!
