This month, Stack Overflow announced the results of its 2015 Developer Survey. As part of the survey, nearly 30,000 software developers were asked which programming language they most want to continue using. At the top of that list—called the “Most Loved” category—is Swift.
That’s impressive for a language that’s not even a year old. But it doesn’t surprise me at all.
In a 30-year career, I’ve needed to learn, use, and sometimes discard many programming languages. And Swift is the most fun I’ve had with any of them.
If you think you might want to become an app developer, here’s why you should be looking at Swift.

With over a million apps on the iTunes App Store, you might think that it’s easy to build an iOS app. And for experienced developers, that may very well be the case.
For guys like me, though—who have no experience with Objective-C (or Apple’s new programming language, Swift)—it’s harder than you think to build your first iOS app.
But it’s not impossible. You just need to know how to get started.

Apple recently released a beta version of Xcode 6.2 to developers worldwide. It includes the much-anticipated iOS 8.2 SDK featuring WatchKit, allowing us to develop for the much-anticipated Apple Watch.
Although the Apple Watch itself won’t be released until Spring 2015, with WatchKit now available we can start building apps for this exciting new wearable device right away.

Mike Wong didn’t want to build an app. He really didn’t. All he wanted was to take awesome long-exposure photos.
But he could never figure out what shutter speed to use for those trial-and-error pictures.
“I thought, ‘There’s got to be a better way than having 50 shots that didn’t work for every one that did,’” says the hobby photographer.
There ought to be an app for that, he thought, as so many of us do these days.
And then—much to his own shock—he built one.
