Apple's Big Breakthrough That Almost No One Knows About: Swift Code - Bloomberg Business

Swift momentum

"What's driving the rapturous response to Swift? The differences between programming languages are notoriously hard to convey to an audience who speaks only English. Swift gets good marks from developers for safety (making it difficult to add bugs to code) and modernity (offering the same bells and whistles as other trendy languages). Another key factor is expressiveness, invoked by coders to describe the ease of explaining to a computer what you want it to do. Swift is widely viewed as more expressive than Objective C because programmers can get the same results with fewer lines of code. “If you looked at all the squiggly lines and semicolons, Objective C would have four times as much,” says Myers Carpenter, a developer for Treehouse, a company that provides educational courses on various technical topics."
