Survey: Swift language is the second fastest growing skill among those required by freelancers

Perhaps it is not so surprising considering that we are talking about a language created carefully and widely disseminated by one of the largest technology companies in the world, but still it is always worth remembering: Swift, although in its "embryonic stage", a resounding success. Proof of this is the survey of Upwork, a website for the dissemination and hiring of works freelance, which ranked the fastest growing skills among those sought by companies for this type of professional.

Swift won an impressive second place, losing only as it could be to knowledge in natural language processing technologies. The following three skills also belong to technology: Tableau, Amazon Marketplace Web Services (MWS) and Stripe, respectively. The data are based on the works published and contracted on the website itself, which is one of the largest in the industry on the planet.

Fortunately, at least in this field, Apple hasn't been dropping the ball apparently in recent times: in addition to the steady and steady development of new versions of Swift, the launch of the Swift Playgrounds app points to a future in which the ability to work with language will no longer be a big differentiator since any child can easily learn it on an iPad. To be?
