The biggest news out of the recent WWDC keynote a couple of weeks ago has to be Apple’s announcement of a brand new programming language called Swift. A small team worked on Swift, in secret, for four years and their efforts paid off. While Apple was successful in gradually bringing more modern language features to Objective-C, a 30-year old language, over the years, Swift represents a clean break and brings with it a new syntax and some exciting features that other languages like Ruby, Scala, and Javascript have enjoyed. Here are some that I’m most excited about:

1. Type Inference
Swift is a type safe language, so the compiler performs type checks to ensure that if a part of your code expects an Integer then you can’t pass it a String instead. Type inference is a great feature that allows you to dispense with explicit declarations of a variable’s or return value’s type. If the compiler can infer the type from the context of the declaration, then you don’t need to be explicit. So, while you could write this:

Educational Design and Technology: Building Skills and Creativity

I recently took a trip to the Middle East (Iran, Oman, and the UAE), where I visited my cousin Jonathan Roberts, who is a Design and Technology teacher at Repton School Dubai, a sister school to Repton School in the United Kingdom. I was really impressed by the amazing workshops and top of the line technology Jonathan’s students were using. As soon as I saw this, I was excited to show it to Baltimoreans. From An Estuary to the Baltimore Robotics Center, from the Foundery to the Digital Harbor Foundation, Baltimore’s educational technology and maker spaces are burgeoning.
