Since this came out of Redmond, it’s apparent that the poster’s goal is to convince Swift developers to try out C# for building iOS apps. The interesting thing is that Microsoft is promoting Xamarin — a tool that uses its programming language but isn’t made by Microsoft — and that it’s pushing development across all platforms. That’s something we wouldn’t have seen in the Ballmer era.

While the poster is useful for its intended audience, it should also be useful for .NET developers who want to give Swift a try.
