TIOBE Index for March 2017
March Headline: Swift enters the top 10 for the first time
This month Swift enters the TIOBE index top 10 for the first time. About 3 years ago Apple announced that it would replace its "ancient" native mobile app development language Objective-C by its newborn language called Swift. The expectations were high right from the start, but adoptation took off slowly. That is for good reasons by the way because the installed base of Objective-C code is quite large. New applications are written in Swift, whereas old apps that are written in Objective-C are not actively migrated to Swift.
