iOS developers are switching to Swift according to this Upwork study


Apple’s programming denunciation Swift has been around for a while, though iOS and macOS developers can still rise apps regulating Apple’s Objective-C. According to a new investigate from Upwork, tech companies are increasingly looking for developers who know how to rise in Swift.

Upwork is a biggest freelancer marketplace in a U.S., so a association can brand trends on a freelancer market. The company’s new investigate finds out a fastest-growing skills in Q4 2016 compared to Q4 2015.

Interestingly, a initial 5 skills are all tech skills, with healthy denunciation estimate leading, followed by Swift, Tableau, Amazon Marketplace Web Services to automatically list products on Amazon’s marketplace, and Stripe integrations.

Apple initial introduced Swift in Jun 2014 during a WWDC event. It was introduced as a complicated programming denunciation that was ostensible to reinstate Objective-C. But these things tend to take a while, so Apple attempted to make a transition as well-spoken as possible.

Swift and Objective-C formula can live corresponding in a same focus on iOS, macOS, tvOS or watchOS. The programming denunciation has developed utterly a lot and was open sourced in Dec 2015.

Since then, Swift has turn some-more mature and versatile. Some developers are even meditative about regulating Swift for server-side development.

And today’s Upwork investigate is a discernible pointer that companies are switching their categorical iOS programming denunciation from Objective-C to Swift. Objective-C was initial expelled in a 1980s after all. So maybe it’s time to switch to a newer programming language.
