At WWDC 2014 Apple introduced Swift, a new programming language for iOS and OS X developers. Objective-C has had a long and distinguished run with Apple, but times change and we move on. In recognition of this, and in reference to the
[objC retain]; shirts of days gone by, I set up a Teespring campaign to say goodbye– gradually– to Objective-C.
[objC release];? Swift is the clear way forward, but Objective-C won’t be disappearing right away. In this context “autorelease” implies “release later”. Objective-C doesn’t disappear right now, but just wait until the end of the run loop…
All profits from these shirts will be donated to App Camp For Girls. (This campaign is not affiliated with App Camp For Girls, I just think it’s a good idea).
