One of the big news stories to come out of Build 2015 was the Objective C tools that Microsoft is introducing to welcome iOS developers to Windows 10. This is amazing news, but there’s a small elephant in the room, and that’s Swift. Apple announced this at its WWDC 2014 developer conference, and is the newest way that iOS developers are building apps. But that doesn’t mean Microsoft has forgotten about it. It’s “going there.”
Microsoft’s really going all-in on this.
… for the competition ?
I think I’ve missed nothing.
That’s their *modus operandis* so far.
They give support to open standards and then, they start adding *closed improvements* until the spec is tied to their OS.
They’ve done it for Java, they will do it for Swift.
So, more of *nothing to see, move along*.
