After going open source, Swift’s popularity seemed to grow exponentially overnight. A new video posted to Vimeo visualizes how Swift came to be, and walks us through the language taking shape leading into it hitting GitHub.
If you know a bit about programming, the video shines. From .cpp files down to Swift mastermind Chris Lattner bouncing around the map early on, it’s a hard look at just how Swift was founded. It doesn’t walk through Swift going open source, but gets us from August 2010 to December 3, 2015.
