Update on the Swift Project Lead
By Chris Lattner, Swift
January 11, 2017
Apple launched Swift at WWDC 2014, the Swift team has worked closely
with our developer community. When we made Swift open source and
launched Swift.org we put a lot of effort into defining a strong
community structure. This structure has enabled Apple and the amazingly
vibrant Swift community to work together to evolve Swift into a
powerful, mature language powering software used by hundreds of millions
Iím happy to announce that Ted Kremenek will be taking over for me as
ďProject LeadĒ for the Swift project, managing the administrative and
leadership responsibility for Swift.org. This recognizes the incredible
effort he has already been putting into the project, and reflects a
decision Iíve made to leave Apple later this month to pursue an
opportunity in another space. This decision wasn't made lightly, and I
want you all to know that Iím still completely committed to Swift. I
plan to remain an active member of the Swift Core Team, as well as a
contributor to the swift-evolution mailing list.
with many phenomenal teams at Apple to launch Swift has been a unique
life experience. Apple is a truly amazing place to be able to assemble
the skills, imagination, and discipline to pull something like this off.
Swift is in great shape today, and Swift 4 will be a really strong
release with Ted as the Project Lead.
Note that this isnít a change to the structure - just to who sits in
which role - so we donít expect it to impact day-to-day operations in
the Swift Core Team in any significant way. Ted and I wanted to let you
know what is happening as a part of our commitment to keeping the
structure of Swift.org transparent to our community.
