David Owens on Swift

David Owens My Swift Dilemma:

"The v1.0 release of Swift has come and gone, and v1.1 is right around the corner. My thoughts so far can be summed up as this: the hype of Swift is over for me - I want my ObjC 3.0 language. I’ll keep trucking along in Swift for the projects I can, but at the end of the day, I’m, on the whole, fairly disappointed in the language.

"The truth of the matter is that I really, really, wanted to like Swift. Much of the Objective-C syntax is clunky, bolted on, and downright infuriating at times (I’m looking at you block syntax). However, the power and flexibility the language provided in its relatively minuscule ruleset should not be overlooked.

"But it is."

My thoughts on Swift are still evolving. I have gut feelings, but I can't trust them until I spend more time using Swift.
