Parse’s Swift Reaction To New Apple Language

SwiftLogo650Facebook-owned cloud-application platform Parse demonstrated a swift response to Apple’s introduction of its Swift programming language Monday.

Parse pointed out in a blog post that Swift is fully compatible with existing Objective-C libraries, including system libraries like Cocoa and third-party libraries like Parse, and it provided instructions for developers seeking to use Parse in their Swift projects.

Parse said in its blog post:

On Monday at WWDC 2014, Apple released a new programming language called Swift. As always, when we see that developers are excited about a new language or platform, we work quickly to make sure Parse can support that momentum. We’re excited about Swift because it brings a whole host of new language features to iOS and OS X development. Swift’s type inference will save developers a ton of typing, and generics will reduce runtime errors by giving us strongly-typed collections.
