Get Fundamentals Of Swift Programming Language

In this blog, I have discussed the main concepts in regards to Swift programming language

What is Swift programming language?

Swift programming language is the best language to develop iOS Applications and Mac OS X Applications. It is a new programming language, which was introduced by Apple with the new features listed below.
  1. A programmer writes our code and it immediately executes.
  2. Swift has syntax like objective-C.
  3. Swift uses existing Cocoa Frameworks.
