Swift : Apple's New Programming Language

Swift will use the same LLVM (Low Level Virtual Machine) compiler and runtime as Apple’s Objective-C implementation, and its simplified syntax gives it an easier learning curve.
The reason behind introducing Swift was to make it easier for developers to create apps for Apple's mobile platform. Apple Developers write codes line after line and then compile those results to see output, but using Swift language they can see results in real time instantly while writing their codes.
Also Syntax for type declarations, Switch statement and for other functions are easier to use and faster than the Objective-C and Python.
But that doesn't mean that Swift will completely kill Objective-C, rather Swift will co-exist with the older programming languages. Developers that can write some part of the code in Objective-C and remaining part in Swift, its upto them only.
Also, there are many tools available to port Objective-C to Java i.e port an app from iOS to Android, but porting Swift apps to Android will now become a tough task for developers.
Apple says that Swift has been in development for many years and finally now they have published a free 500-page Swift Programming Language book if you want to learn more about the language.
