Re: What's Swift even supposed to do?

"As a former iOS developer (Objective-C) who never made the transition to Swift, I have to ask what Swift as a language targets."

I would say refresh yourself on your Objective-C. Apple is going to be back there soon enough.

And not because Swift is unpopular on the server side, but because of native integration with C. A legacy that none of us can escape ;)
