Why Google and Apple made their own programming languages

Swift frequently tops developer surveys as the language developers are the most interested in by online coder hangouts like Stack Exchange. Last November, a man made $66,000 in a month just by teaching other developers how to use Swift, so strong is the interest.But Apple isn't the first big tech company to release its own programming language - not by a long shot.

Back in 1991, Microsoft released Visual Basic as a way to streamline the development of Basic, one of the earliest popular programming languages with a graphical user interface (GUI).

More recently, circa 2009, Google released Go, its own programming language.

Programming languages are a matter of religion for so many developers. For Apple, Google, and even Microsoft way back when to release a new programming language means an uphill battle against the habits and routines of developers, who are set in their ways.
