Serverless architecture represents a new stage in the app development also known as Function-as-a-Service (FaaS). It’s a kind of cloud computing changing the app building world.
Serverless is everything about freedom from “always on” server systems sitting behind an app. But initially, serverless meant a slightly different thing: the app dependence on the 3rd-party services (AWS Lambda, Autho, Parse, etc.) managing the server-side logic and state.
Swift is a new programming language for iOS, MacOS, watchOS, and tvOS apps that build on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an opportunity to re-imagine how software development works.
Apple released new public betas for its major operating systems today — iOS 9 and OS X 10.11 El Capitan. They are likely identical or very similar to the developer betas the company released yesterday.
Members of the public who want to get an early look at the operating systems can sign up for the beta program at Apple’s website.
The new iOS 9 beta arrives just a couple of weeks after the last public beta. The last beta introduced the new News app to the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Other features in the new OS include a rebuilt Notes app and split-screen dual-app multitasking features for the iPad.
Swift is an innovative programming language from apple. Swift has been introduced along with the release of iOS 8 and Yosemite. It offers a very faster and easier way to build iOS applications than its existing programming language, Objective-C. It is a multi-paradigm programming language.Apple describes Swift as modern, fast, powerful, safe and interactive programming language. If you have knowledge in object oriented and functional programming, you can learn it easily.Swifts’s syntax is much more succinct and it makes programming simpler .The code is clean, simple and less vulnerable to errors.
Comparison between Objective C and Swift
Swift offers type inference by introducing ‘Var’ keyword, while ObjC does not. Another main feature of Swift is generics but objective C does not have this feature. With Objective-C developers often needed to find separate codes from other libraries but in Swift you can find a lot of functional codes built in.
Put it this way you either love it use it and cant live without it everyday and it just gets better everyday. Disagree you are still on your droids and BB’s, come explore what design and visualization is all about. This is the thing of the future.
The jury may still be out on iOS 7’s radical redesign – for what it’s worth we love it, with a few reservations – there’s no denying that it’s the friendliest and most powerful version of iOS yet. But there’s more to iOS 7 than headline features such as Control Center and iTunes Radio: some of the best improvements are small things that make our everyday lives that little bit more pleasant.
These are our favorites – let us know yours in the comments, and check out our iOS 7 !
1. Camera: shoot in burst mode
The redesigned Camera app has a nifty trick up its sleeve: if you want to shoot in burst mode, taking multiple shots in quick succession, just click and hold the volume-up button.
