A New Programming Language Is Unveiled At WWDC

iOS and OS X Apps have traditionally relied on the Objective-C programming language for development, but Apple has now introduced a programming language of their own that promises to make it more accessible to people who aren’t already creating them.

According to Apple Balla, Swift will work well with existing software, working side by side with Objective-C and Cocoa. By using the same runtime and compiler, it won’t be anything drastically different on the coding side, but it will offer an incredible increase in speed and performance. According to the statistics that Apple has released, it is 2.8 times faster than Python when performing the same tasks.

The goal is to make a language that is much safer, unifying the object-oriented parts of the language and using different types of variables and operators. These will all be initialized before they can be used, preventing overflow or problems with memory that might otherwise arise.

To learn the new language, Apple is providing a guide through the developers site as well as in the iBook platform. With the addition of opening up the beta testing program to everyday users, it would seem that Apple is attempting to make App development more accessible on the whole, bringing many new people into the system and make it easier than ever to produce Apps that meet visions that existing developers might not be capable of.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
