Apple plans to host its annual Worldwide Developers Conference starting on June 22 this year. For the first time in 31 years, the event will be entirely virtual. Over 23 million Apple developers around the world are invited to take part in the conference free of charge.
Apple has launched Swift.org to announce that the Swift language, debugger, supporting libraries, and package manager have been published under the Apache 2.0 license with a Runtime Library Exception. This means the source code is freely available on GitHub for anyone to build themselves, and developers can contribute to the project. Since its initial release in mid-2014, Apple has intended for Swift to become an open source programming language.
