Server-side Swift for Java developers

Is Swift the future for server applications or is it just a passing trend? In this session, Ian Partridge gives an introduction to server-side Swift applications for Java developers.

6 reasons why

It’s time to get proficient at Swift

Apple’s open source language has hit the headlines more than once this year — it had its ups and downs but a lot of people seem to believe that it’s here to stay, which is why you should give it a go if you haven’t yet.

The wheels on the TIOBE index go round and round

Swift’s popularity has gone into free fall, TIOBE index shows

We’ve recently noticed a change in readers’ interest towards Swift but then again, in tech, everything changes at the speed of light. However, we’re not the only ones who noticed that — according to this month’s TIOBE index, Swift is losing popularity. What triggered the change? We can only speculate.

ABI stability ≠ module stability

What to expect from Swift 5: All eyes on ABI stability

Swift 4 will be released later this year but what about Swift 5? Ted Kremenek, ‎Senior Manager, Languages and Runtimes at Apple encourages you to submit your proposals for Swift 5 and reveals the core themes and focus areas for it.

The tool you didn't know you needed

SwiftKotlin: Comes in handy when you want to translate Swift code into Kotlin

The name of the tool is self-explanatory, for sure. SwiftKotlin is a framework, a command line tool and a Mac application for translating Swift code into Kotlin. However, keep in mind that this is not a magic bullet: its goal is *not* to produce production-ready Kotlin code, but “just a Kotlin translation that will require manual edition.”

Server APIs in the making

Swift is entering server-side Java’s territory

What the developer wants, the developer gets! A handful of Web Frameworks emerged after Swift became available on Linux, ignited by boosted interest in using Swift on the server. As a consequence, the Server APIs work group was formed with the goal “of making it possible for anyone to build a simple, secure, HTTP server, or to start to build other server frameworks like pub/sub message brokers.”
