>our forced OS upgrades have more than their optional OS upgrades
I mean, windows is pretty bad but at least they don't purposely gimp older versions so you're forced to buy new ones.
Oh wow it's a statically typed language that is in the same order of magnitude speed of a very slow open source scripting language.
What's that? I only need to spend 1200$ for a new mac so I get to use your shitty language and be locked into your ecosystem? Well sure i'd love that! Please insert your cock directly into my anus next time and skip the middleman
Being able to use emojis for variable names is one of the most retarded design choices I've ever seen. I can just imagine all the new people who get into programming to become the next Stove Jorbs will do stuff like this making the code nearly unreadable.
variables are declared with either "var" (mutable variable) or "let" (immutable variable). It didn't work because the syntax is wrong.
try this before the second statement:
var a = 0
Swift is nice actually.
The bad part is iOS application architecture and having to deal with objective-c legacy shit with optionals.
So not so much the language that sucks, but the ecosystem. Also xcode crashes on me at least 10 times a day. Fucking apple.
Python isn't dead until someone ports ALL of the SciPy libraries, tools and applications to it, and then Python *still* isn't dead until Swift can be developed for on any platform
It's called resource management, if you have a server running multiple services to multiple clients then you would want all your programs to run as efficiently as possible so everything overall works better...
Python is useful for small programs, gluing programs together and (I would argue) some data analysis with NumPy/matplotlib. Nobody's going to write the next Photoshop in Swift, either; that's a trait it shares with Python
Can't you just use Visual Basic and C# for that? Which has a better network for support in the data mining community? I really don't see the point in using Python and it doesn't seem the professional world ever did either. Arguably Python was DOA. At least Ruby on Rails is useful for retard business majors.
So where can I use this Swift language and how do I learn it? Is it as easy as python?
