In case you were underground last week (and I was close to being just that for the week), you heard that Apple announced a new programming language, Swift, at their World Wide Developer Conference (WWDC 2014).

Needless to say, this is something I am going to take a nice, long look at. I happen to kind of like Objective-C, but there are many things about Swift that I really like.

If you are interested, you can download a book from the iBooks Store title The Swift Programming Language and take a look at what the future might look for Apple development.
