Smalltalk solved that problem 36 years ago. They could have moved to full on real Smalltalk. No language has ever felt as expressive or powerful to me as Smalltalk. Objective C was a fair approximation (except for the square bracket madness). Im finding that Swift forces my attention from the problem domain into the implementation domain a lot. Much attention is now paid to unwrapping optionals and making types "match". Many of the more dynamic features I like and lean on are gradually being phased out in the name of "speed" (really? I haven't had to optimize anything for speed in years) and "safety" (unwrapping a nil optional now terminates your program - why not just attach a bomb to the flaps switch in airplanes that goes off if flaps are deployed at too high an airspeed - that'll make those planes MUCH SAFER!). I'm definitely starting to move away from Apple in all respects. I'd rather write PHP than Swift.
