And most developers can’t get over the Objective-c syntax?? This makes me cringe!

All in all, Swift has been pretty nice with the exception of the syntactical hiccups (mostly due to casting)! Still don’t think I’m going to write anything of significance with it yet, one because I’m much more efficient with Objective-C and secondly the language itself I believe is still going through growing pains. Although, its growing on me!
