Chris Lattner, the creator of Apple’s premiere coding language, Swift, bid his goodbye to the company as he announced his resignation on the Swift mailing list on Tuesday, January 10, 2017. No reason was given by him so as to why he left Apple, as he only stated that he wishes to ‘pursue an opportunity in another space’.
Swift is a powerful and intuitive programming language for macOS, iOS, watchOS and tvOS. Writing Swift code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and Swift includes modern features developers love. Swift code is safe by design, yet also produces software that runs lightning-fast.
