11 AM Hangout Today: What is Apple’s Swift All About?

3 Jun 2014 10:48am, by

Apple announced a new programming language yesterday called Swift. What is it? Why launch a new programming language? And why are vendors so interested in developing their own programming languages these days? And what about Android? Does it need its own programming language? Should it be Go? Apple also announced a new PaaS called CloudKit that with Swift raises a question: Can Apple sustain its closed, proprietary approach in this age of multiple cloud services?

Come join us at 11 a.m. PDT today as we discuss the news from the Apple World Wide Developer Conference and what it means for developers.

Our hosts and special guest: Co-host Michael Cote of 451 Research will join the discussion with Sravish Sridhar, CEO of Kinvey, our sponsor for this week’s show.
