Swift ThoughtsSwift Thoughts

I get asked a lot whether I like Objective-C or Swift better. My answer is that they're different. When I'm coding in Swift, I'm thinking of how to best approach the problem in Swift, not how I would approach the problem in Objective-C and translate to Swift.

I do find Swift to be harder than Objective-C if I had to compare. That's because Swift has more ways of doing things and I'm still learning and experimenting, especially when it comes to functional programming concepts. The fact that Swift is harder for me does not bother me - I love the challenge and learning that comes with it.

Anyway, just wanted to write this note as a follow-up to @redqueencoder's defense of Swift for those who are more negative on Swift out there. Oh yeah, and I do love coding in Swift.

Happy Learning!
