Apple has introduced a brand-new programming language to the world. Now at 1.0, Swift is here to make your iOS and OS X apps more awesome. Let’s take a look at the language, how it’s used, and play with it! This session assumes no previous experience with Apple platforms or Objective-C, though we will compare Swift code to Objective-C code to see just how much better it can make some programming tasks. Much of this session will take place inside of an iOS Playground in Swift. We will see code live in Apple’s new REPL which was inspired by Light Table.
