OK, I'm downloading Xcode 7 beta 3 ... Now, Apple should do something to help show a path for Greece -- something between imposing grinding austerity and promoting a welfare state.
Where's the Xcode 7.0 Beta 3?????

Well, then -- he certainly wouldn't want to be considered swift
My initial foray into web development (1997) was with JavaScript -- the first time I had done any programming in years.JavaScript was simple, easy to learn -- though a little slow in those days. I was able to write a shopping cart with JavaScript.So yes, it is an excellent starting point, IMO.However, I think that Swift offers several advantages over JavaScript:fastsafestrongly typedconcise syntaxforced initialization of variableswriting time validation of code as...
I agree! But I don't think those instructions are meant to be a means to understanding -- rather they are a starting point, a working example if you will -- which through research and experimentation provide the understanding you seek.Ray Wunderlich has some pretty good tutorials in Obj-C and Swift. Some of the older tuts, like RWMapping, have not, yet, been updated to Swift. IMHO, it is a worthwhile exercise to follow the tut, but implement the code in Swift -- you...
Mmm ... I am amazed at how much I misjudge someone by a series of web posts spanning years!My problem squarely lies with the syntax, not with the logic, but not having a good foundation of the mechanics of how the code and compiler work to create the program is certainly an issueWhy is that an issue -- any more than when you insert a DVD the player app pops up (with appropriate drivers) to play your DVD?Seriously, that's an unnecessary distraction/crutch -- it just works! ...
I don't know what cargo cutting means!Really? From our prior exchanges, I assumed that you had a much broader traditional CSI/OOP background than I.I am more anal-retentive than most, and want to understand everything about something before I use it. But, had I done that, I'd be the best damn assembly programmer around -- let's talk assembler macro pre-processors ... yes, did that on the Apple ][ ...BASIC was/is a disaster ... Not until UCSD Pascal was an Apple...
