Over the last few weeks I’ve been asked the question a lot – how do I learn Swift? Should I learn it now?
Objective-C isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. In fact, it’ll be around for a long time. There’s currently 1.2 Million iOS apps written in Objective-C on the app store and countless other Mac apps also written in Objective-C. As such, it’s not leaving us.
Sadly, because of the Apple NDA (non-discosure agreement), developers can’t post video tutorials or screenshots of beta software for other iOS developers to learn swift. We can, however, produce tutorials but have to be careful what he show off in those tutorials. Because of the NDA, resources for Swift will be limited until Apple lifts it in the Fall.
So my suggestion to aspiring iOS developers: learn Objective-C and get a good handle on it. Then make the jump to swift – everything will make a lot more sense! Happy learning!
