How can we create a dictionary in Swift

To create an empty dictionary
var myDictionary = Dictionary<String,String>() 

A typical dictionary has a key, value pair, so
myDictionary["user"] = "Sander"

This dictionary has now one entry
assert(myDictionary.description == "[user: Sander]")

Add an extra value to the dictionary

The content of the dictionary will be
assert(myDictionary.description == "[user: Renny, password: Secret!]") // (!)Watch the space behind the :

Swift, Hello?

Hello, Swift.

The first program in every language is a ‘Hello, world’ example.
Let´s honor this tradition, but enhance it a little bit.

This is everything that is needed tot create the complete program.
I think it is Groovy!
