What Apple actually did is make it harder to enter the field for some time. Learn two programming languages instead of one is not easy.Without considering that all the APIs are still in Objective-CThere is a lot of experience that goes into the platform. Switching the language does not make that go away.Many people think that Swift puts everybody back to "square one". It doesn't. I can pick up Swift iOS dev in one week, a beginner can't.@sla_shalafi @pauldarcey Unfortunately it's full of dumb advice out there.Advice I see a lot online: Q: "How do I learn iOS development from scratch?" A: "Learn HTML, CSS and Javascript first" 😧
