Apple launches Swift blog to keep developers up to date on the new language

Apple has launched a new blog focused on their new Swift programming language. At the moment, there are two posts to the blog. The first is a welcome post. The second deals with Swift's compatibility with current apps, source code, and more. From Swift blog (opens in new tab):

This new blog will bring you a behind-the-scenes look into the design of the Swift language by the engineers who created it, in addition to the latest news and hints to turn you into a productive Swift programmer.

Swift was originally unveiled at WWDC 2014, and is billed as Objective-C without the C. Apple hopes that Swift is a more accessible language than Objective-C, and one that both new and veteran developers can learn fairly easily.

What do you think of Apple's new Swift blog? Let us know below in the comments.

  • Will check out the Swift blog ASAP. But so far, Swift lives up to its hype. It's easy to pick up if you already know C++ or Objective-C, and it appears to be simple enough for newbies to learn quickly. Especially with Xcode 6 "sandboxes." Just type Swift code snippets into a blank sandbox window and you see results. No need to build an app just to fiddle with Swift. That removes an enormous barrier for first-timers.
