The first impression Flash developers usually share with us about Swift is “Oh, it’s almost ActionScript, isn’t it!” What they refer to is how readable syntax-wise a piece of Swift code is, compared to Objective-C, which used to be the typical choice when switching to native iOS programming. And they have a point: in contrast to transitioning to Objective-C, moving to Swift from ActionScript has a much lower entry point. Swift offers a lot more than that and in this chapter we will start unpacking its bag of goodies.
