Why learn Swift?

In today’s world, apps have become a predominant feature of digital interaction.  The more mobile we are, the more mobile we want our information to be.  This has led to a steep increase in the demand for apps and app developers.  An iOS app developer is a promising career and mastering a language like Swift from Apple will help you land your dream job.  There is a huge demand for iOS app developers who are a coveted lot considering they design apps for a market that is estimated to be around 29 billion U.S. dollars.

Swift is an open source and intuitive programming language developed in the labs of Apple that enables building apps for iOS, Mac, Apple TV, and Apple Watch.  With its safe and reliable code, Swift developers can create richer app experiences. It is also a fast and efficient language that gives real-time feedback and can be easily incorporated into existing Objective-C code.  Some of the top apps that use Swift are Khan Academy, LinkedIn, Airbnb and Eventbrite. Swift ranks #10 in programming languages according to TIOBE index. 

Top-notch companies like Uber, Lyft, Asana, Apple, and many more have endorsed Swift and are using it to develop codes for iOS, Watch OS, Linux, and TVOS. Also, this language offers value-added features of Objective-C, allowing them to build user-friendly and engaging apps.

Benefits Of Swift Language

Apple describes its Swift language as “Objective-C without the C”.  Reason – Swift is as fast and efficient as Objective-C and also gives real-time feedback.  Swift offers clean syntax, safer platform, fewer legacy codes, great speed and above all, can be easily incorporated into existing Objective-C code.  Let us look at how a Swift certification is going to benefit you.

  • The average salary for mobile app developers is around $139,000 
  • There is a steady increase in the demand for people who build mobile apps and is projected to hit 14 million mark by the year 2020.

Swift FAQs

iOS Development

iOS Application development can be defined as the process of developing native applications on Apple’s mobile OS that runs on its iPads, iPhones, etc. To do this it’s preferable to have a Mac, and have the latest version of Xcode which is Apples IDE to write iOS apps. Apple also suggests using the Swift Programming language for writing Native Apps on iOS.

An iOS developer needs to be familiar with Native languages such as Swift or Objective C to build Native Apps on iOS. However being familiar with React Native and Xamarin allows the developer to create cross-platform applications on both Android and iOS. 

The Swift programming language was developed by Apple Inc and designed to work with its cocoa frameworks and a large portion of existing Objective-C Code. Swift was made open source in the year 2015 and uses LLVM (Low level virtual Machine). It was designed to create mobile apps, desktop applications and even end to end solutions for MAC.

Swift

Swift Programming language is a multi-paradigm, compiled language developed by Apple Inc. in 2014 and was introduced at the Worldwide Developers Conference. Its major use is in the domain of creating Mobile and desktop applications. With its safe and reliable code, Swift developers can create richer app experiences. It is also a fast and efficient language that gives real-time feedback and can be easily incorporated into existing Objective-C code.  Some of the top apps that use Swift are Khan Academy, LinkedIn, Airbnb and Eventbrite. Swift ranks #10 in programming languages according to TIOBE index.

Yes, Swift is a Multi-Paradigm, compiled programming language developed by Apple Inc.

The Swift Programming language has a lot of features that set it apart, some of them are listed below-

  • Easy to read and write and provides the user with complete control.
  • The named parameters of Objective-c’s are expressed in a cleaner syntax making APIs in swift easy to maintain
  • Swift is a secure language that removes entire classes of unsafe code, makes the syntax easier to define intent and by default Swift objects will never be nil, trying to make or use nil object will result in run time error.
  • Its open source nature is the reason why it can be used on Linux to build libraries and applications and to create applications for all Apple platforms using a MAC and Creating web frameworks.

There are a lot of reasons to use the Swift programming language. It is focused on speed, and you can optimize Swift code for even better performance. With a strong typing system and error handling capability it prevents crashes in production and allows users to fix code on the go. There are other compelling characteristics such as lower memory footprint, auto memory management, and support that make Swift programming language an ideal choice.

Yes, you can, Swift was primarily developed for building native apps on iOS, iPadOS, macOS, tvOS, watchOS, z/OS and apart from this Swift already has support for Linux and is working its way to create apps on the windows platform as an Open source language.

Swift is a much easier language to learn compared to Objective C. Objective-C is a language which was developed in 1984 and the initial language that was supported by Apple until Swift came into the picture in 2014. Swift is amazingly fast and has various advantages during development which save costs. It is completely compatible with Objective-C. By migrating code from Swift to Objective C, the Developers can take advantage of its advanced features. Therefore, Swift is better than Objective C.

Swift for Windows is an open source project. It is a Development environment for Programming with Swift to develop Windows Applications.  The current version is Windows 2.0 which includes the Swift 4.1.3 Compiler. The System requirements to run this include Windows 10 or 7, 64 bit. You can find the download able file here, with a step by step guide to start compiling.

Wikipedia defines Functional programming as a programming paradigm that treats computation as the evaluation of mathematical functions and avoids state and mutable data. Swift is not a functional language but it does carry a lot of features that enable us to apply functional principles in development, thereby creating a more concise and maintainable code that is easier to test.

Popularity

Swift is one of the more popular languages even today, despite its fall from its 11th Spot in 2018 to 18th Spot in 2019 on the TIOBE index. It still remains the go-to language for creating iOS native apps because it’s easy to learn and understand compared to Objective-c and is only growing in popularity after its open source projects allowed users to develop web apps on Linux and Windows platforms.

Swift is a comparatively a new programming language with its inception in 2014.  It has the potential to create feature-rich, responsive apps and has almost completely replaced Objective-C. Swift is one of the fastest-growing skills to have among app developers and large scale organizations are slowly but surely making the decision to go with Swift to build cost effective Modern iOS applications. The future for Swift definitely looks bright!

Uses

The goal of the Swift language is to be the most ideal language for developing web apps, mobile apps, systems programming and going all the way up to providing cloud services.  It was designed primarily to write and maintain programs and make life easier for developers. 

Book

There are hundreds of books to learn iOS development with Swift. But there are a few that are noteworthy and recommended by a lot of developer communities to start with. Here’s a short list of books that are voted to be the best resources
