Should we transit towards SWIFT?
Like any new development language, Swift has its own set of challenges and gaps but at the same time has its own set of advantages too. Still Swift is being accepted widely and rapidly. This is shown by some surveys that are conducted by independent bodies.
Definitely it will have its own rise and falls on various parameters like performance, popularity and usage etc but the bottom line is that SWIFT is from Apple and Apple is determined to back it up and take it to the level where it is recognised and accepted as a mature, reliable and stable platform for the new generation applications.
Inventing a new programming language is something very few companies can do and we believe it will have a profound effect on our ecosystem.
Appleinsider.com mentions “Apple's new Swift programming language has only been available for a few months, but iOS and OS X developers from American Airlines, Getty Images, LinkedIn and Duolingo are reporting favorable impressions--ranging from increased productivity to fewer bugs in their shipping apps--as interest in the new language rapidly accelerates.”
Apple's new Swift programming language takes flight with Getty Images, American Airlines, LinkedIn, and Duolingo.
Apart from the developer community, Swift has been radically accepted as part of their learning programs by many international universities and technical schools. Some of these include Germany's Technical University of Munich to Tecnológico de Monterrey in Mexico, Ingésup in France, Aberystwyth University and Plymouth University in Great Britain and RMIT University in Australia.
A variety of international universities and technical schools are already incorporating Swift into their courses.
