• Apple Makes its Swift Programming Language Open Source as Promised



    Apple's Swift programming language has been made open source this week, making it even easier for developers to get their hands dirty with the coding language. Being open source gives individuals more power over the language, which means the language won't only be used for iOS and OS X apps anymore and could be extended to broader horizons.

    Swift has become popular for Apple programmers because it's a faster, easier, and smarter coding language that works together with other languages to provide a fast and fluid user experience. A vast majority of the developer community has embraced Swift already, and it has made big changes to the development experience.

    Swift is now open source!

    We are excited by this new chapter in the story of Swift. After Apple unveiled the Swift programming language, it quickly became one of the fastest growing languages in history. Swift makes it easy to write software that is incredibly fast and safe by design. Now that Swift is open source, you can help make the best general purpose programming language available everywhere.

    For students, learning Swift has been a great introduction to modern programming concepts and best practices. And because it is now open, their Swift skills will be able to be applied to an even broader range of platforms, from mobile devices to the desktop to the cloud.

    Welcome to the Swift community. Together we are working to build a better programming language for everyone.
