The Swift Programming Language (Swift 2.2)

Swift Programming Series

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Swift is a new programming language for creating iOS, OS X, watchOS, and tvOS apps. Swift builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an opportunity to reimagine how software development works.

This book provides:
- A tour of the language.
- A detailed guide delving into each language feature.
- A formal reference for the language.

A well written introduction and reference guide

I’ve often wished that there was a native language for IOS development that wasn’t burdened with Objective C’s odd syntax, and its backwards compatibility with C.

This book starts with a nice overview of the language, which should be enough to get experienced developers going. Further chapters expand on the material presented in the first chapter, and the book finishes with a language reference that is reminescent of BNF, but easier to read.

The language itself is much like Java or C#. Apple promises run-time compatibility with Objective C binaries, which would be a welcome alternative to Java’s JNI for integrating with code written in C.
