Apple launches Swift blog to keep developers up to date on the new language

Apple has launched a new blog focused on their new Swift programming language. At the moment, there are two posts to the blog. The first is a welcome post. The second deals with Swift’s compatibility with current apps, source code, and more. From Swift blog:

This new blog will bring you a behind-the-scenes look into the design of the Swift language by the engineers who created it, in addition to the latest news and hints to turn you into a productive Swift programmer.

Swift was originally unveiled at WWDC 2014, and is billed as Objective-C without the C. Apple hopes that Swift is a more accessible language than Objective-C, and one that both new and veteran developers can learn fairly easily.

Apple to pay suppliers faster, signs on to White House’s SupplierPay program

Apple is one of the companies signing on with the Obama Administration’s SupplierPay initiative, a voluntary program which is intended to get larger businesses to pay the smaller companies on their supply chain promptly. For Apple, that means the companies that supply the components for their devices. The purpose of the program is to get money into the hands of small businesses faster, reducing the need of these businesses to borrow money, according to the Wall Street Journal:

SupplierPay builds on the federal government’s QuickPay program started in 2011. It sets a goal of having small-business contractors get paid within 15 days of delivering a product or service. Quicker payments can strengthen small companies’ cash flows and make them less likely to need to borrow.

Apple uses several component suppliers, both in the United States and abroad. By signing on to SupplierPay, Apple is committing to paying these companies that they rely on in a timely fashion.
