What is Apple Swift?

Swift is a programming language for iOS, OS X, watchOS and tvOS apps that builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an opportunity to reimagine how software development works.

It is the easiest language to learn along with Kotlin!

Swift is a good move for Apple; it makes developing for iOS more attractive. And because Swift, like Objective-C, is only relevant within the Apple ecosystem it encourages developers to commit exclusively to Apple and neglect other platforms. This is clearly a good outcome for Apple, but it’s a bad outcome for developers wanting to engage as many people as possible. source: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/gabe-sumner/why-most-developers-shoul_b_5454013.html

The syntax of Swift is extremely similair to the one of Kotlin like these two programming languages are siblings who live in separate worlds. They are of different temper but cannot deny their common roots. ;) --> Who writes the first Swift / Kotlin cross-compiler? :)
