Swift for Javascript and Ruby Developers

Jared White by Jared White on November 14, 2016

Last week I had the privilege of presenting on the topic of learning Swift from the perspective of a developer currently familiar with Ruby or Javascript. I showed off some of the reasons why Swift is a pretty exciting language for those used to working with lightweight scripting languages, and I also demonstrated some example code that highlights similar functionality implementations across all three languages.

You can see the presentation slides here, and code examples are available on Github. If you yourself are a developer in one or more of these languages and have suggestions for further code examples or useful comparisons, please submit a pull request on Github and let me know!
