The Swift Programming Language (Swift 4.2)
Swift Programming Series
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Swift is a programming language for creating iOS, macOS, 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.
What's New in Version 4.2
- Updated for Swift 4.2. - Added information about accessing all of an enumeration’s cases to the Iterating over Enumeration Cases section. - Added information about #error and #warning to the Compile-Time Diagnostic Statement section. - Added information about inlining to the Declaration Attributes section under the inlinable and usableFromInline attributes. - Added information about members that are looked up by name at runtime to the Declaration Attributes section under the dynamicMemberLookup attribute. - Added information about the requires_stored_property_inits and warn_unqualified_access attributes to the Declaration Attributes section. - Added information about how to conditionally compile code depending on the Swift compiler version being used to the Conditional Compilation Block section. - Added information about #dsohandle to the Literal Expression section.
A new Dawn in Programming is here!
I think Swift will revolutionize programming once again. Programming has never been so interactive, it's not just code anymore it's much more than that. Playgrounds(Love the name) will make designing animations for example much much simpler and most importantly faster than ever before. Its fantastic to be one of the first to learn this new programming language which I'm sure will be a milestone in computing in the near future. Developer Friendly just got pushed to the next level. Hoping to use this in the decades to come. Thank you, Apple.
Waste of time at this point, to learn new syntax’s, Rather to improve or merge with existing one.
A simpler way tocoding
Syntax is easier to understand and to read.
Definitly debugs faster if your project has lots of classes
