Presentation: "Swift: New Paradigms for iOS Development"

Time: Monday 11:00 - 11:50 / Location: Promenade Ballroom B & C

Swift part of the new generation of multi-paradigm functional/object-oriented languages. Like Scala, F#, and other languages in this tradition, it marries the elegance and predictability of functional languages with the practicality of imperative languages and the ubiquity of object-oriented frameworks. This talk provides a broad overview of the Swift language and outlines some of the new approaches developers can utilize to create apps for iOS and the Mac. Some audience familiarity with an object-oriented language will be assumed, but no experience with Objective-C or functional languages will be expected.
