If you value great performance, safety and a modern approach, Swift may be the right choice for you.
Swift is an intuitive programming language created by Apple to allow developers to create mobile applications for Mac, Apple TV, iOS, and Apple Watch. Its purpose is to give development teams more freedom than any other programming language.
Swift is a safe and easy-to-use, open-source programming language that allows developers to create whatever they want.
From the very beginning, Swift was designed to be more secure than C-based programming languages. It eliminates classes of unsafe code, initializes variables before use, memory is managed automatically, and integers and arrays are analyzed for overflow. All of this contributes to the security of the language.
According to the Tiobe index, which publishes the rankings of the most popular programming languages, Tiobe placed Swift in 10th place among the most popular programming languages (as of December 2021). Compared to the previous year, Swift increased its position by 3 places in the index.
It depends on what aspects. For example, if we compare Swift with Java executing mandelbrot, Swift reaches 3.19 sec, while Java 6.83 sec. But there are some tasks that make Swift take longer time like binary trees where Swift needs 45.06 sec. while Java only 8.32 sec. (data from Techtrix). Nevertheless, Swift is considered a fast programming language.
In many ways, Swift and C ++ have similar values, such as the drive to act quickly. Both Swift and C ++ have similar object representations. Additionally, Swift offers excellent security and a modern system.
The Swift language offers a wide variety of features, including:
Additional features include generics, efficient built-in error handling, structures supporting methods, extensions and protocols, tuples and multiple return values, pointers to unifying closure functions, fast iterations of a range or collection, and more.
Swift has a large database of companies that have chosen this programming language for their application development. Among them are: Facebook, Slack, Uber, WhatsApp, Airbnb, Instagram, Accenture, LinkedIn, Medium, Twitter, CNN, Kickstarter and many more.
