A Swift programmer who was diagnosed with ALS in November and was awaiting treatment died Saturday, his family confirmed.
The man was 32.
He had been working for the Swiss language firm Coding Language and Technology, the company said in a statement.
He was a veteran of the Swift programming language family, having worked on Swift in his native Australia and in Switzerland for more than a decade.
The Swift community is mourning the loss of the talented programmer who went on to work at Coding.
Swift was developed by Apple and is used in more than 150 languages worldwide.
It is also used by Microsoft and Google in their Android mobile operating systems.
Swift is used as the primary programming language in the world’s largest mobile operating system, Windows, as well as on a range of other mobile devices, including cars and even the latest smart TVs.
