Swift is an exciting new language introduced by Apple during WWDC 2014. Taking cues from modern languages such as Rust and F#, Swift is a refreshing replacement for the aging Objective-C language. Apple announced at WWDC 2015 that Swift 2 is going to be an open source language. This means it could soon power web servers on the open web. Swift's playground environment makes it easy to quickly play with the language and is the tool of choice for experimentation. This session will bring you up to speed with the Swift language through live code demos inside of a Swift playground. You'll leave with the knowledge needed to tackle iOS, Mac and eventually web applications using a new language.
