Swift was introduced by Apple during WWDC 2014. Taking cues from modern languages such as Rust and F#, Swift is a refreshing replacement for the aging Objective-C language. Apple open sourced Swift in version 2. This means it will soon power web servers on the open web! There are already great companies like IBM contributing heavily to the Swift open source scene. Swift’s playground environment makes it easy to quickly play with the language and is the tool of choice for experimentation. Swift 3 was just released in September. This session will bring you up to speed with the Swift language through live code demos inside of a Swift playground. I’ll highlight new features from Swift 3 and how they impact your development with the language. You’ll leave with the knowledge needed to tackle iOS, Mac or web applications using a new language.
