I watched a demo (!) of Swift Playgrounds @ Apple Store Strasbourg today (30 minutes and
I talked and demonstrated Xojo (display how easy it is to add a button and MsgBox “Hello World”), then two of my projects at the attendee and the demonstrator (who do not know what Xojo is. *
- A true shame cause I knew REALbasic from Apple Developer News around 20 years ago !
Swift Playgrounds: a Lego à la Apple in 2018. On iPad; I saw an iPad Pro
not sure what Swift had to do with your demonstration
Swift Playground is not a development tool… its a place to learn Swift, and test Swift code… so comparing Playground to Xojo is not a valid comparison…
It was the real subject; an intro to Swift Playground made by Apple. (intro to programming an iPad).
And yes for the second sentence.
I am not disputing that Apple provided a Demonstration of Swift Playground…
What I am trying to understand is what that (if anything) has to do with Xojo or any demonstration YOU made?
I was there, there was an audience (and nobody to attend the next Swift Playgrounds demo) and I show them a different thing (an IDE).
Can you elaborate a bit what you do not understand ?
Even if the two do not play in the same category, this is development on computer, (yes apple and oranges), not carpenter and space navigation.
Is it ?
I have respect to wood carpenters (I love wood) and will like to travel in space (will never do like 99% of us).
Never mind… I think I will just stop trying to understand you… sorry
If you do not try to explain, for sure I will not understand.
Dave is right. Comparing Swift Playground with Xojo is useless.
A good comparison would be Swift with Xojo (and Xojo would loose considerably).
Btw Playground is just a doodle pad to test simple Swift code.
