If you are not yet familiar with Swift, here is some information that will make you want to get started right away!
- You can experiment with Swift code in "Playgrounds": one of Swift's most interesting features is an interactive environment called a Playground. This tool lets you see the effects of changes or additions to code as you type, without going through the time-consuming rigmarole of running the code through the compiler and executing it.
- Swift offers type inference: coders don't need to spend time annotating variables with type information and risk making mistakes; in most cases, the compiler can infer the type from the value that a variable is being set with.
- Swift introduces Generics: these are functions that can be reused with different variable types without being rewritten for each type.
