Updated for OS X 10.9 Mavericks, iOS 7, and Xcode 5
Programming in Objective-C is a concise, carefully written tutorial on the basics of Objective-C and object-oriented programming for Apple's iOS and OS X platforms.
The book makes no assumptions about prior experience with object-oriented programming languages or with the C language (which Objective-C is based upon). Because of this, both beginners and experienced programmers alike can use this book to quickly and effectively learn the fundamentals of Objective-C. Readers can also learn the concepts of object-oriented programming without having to first learn all of the intricacies of the underlying C programming language.
This unique approach to learning, combined with many small program examples and exercises at the end of each chapter, makes Programming in Objective-C ideally suited for either classroom use or self-study.
This edition has been fully updated to incorporate new Objective-C features and technologies introduced with Xcode 5, iOS 7, and Mac OS X Mavericks.
“The best book on any programming language that I’ve ever read. If you want to learn Objective-C, buy it.”—Calvin Wolcott
“An excellent resource for a new programmer who wants to learn Objective-C as their first programming language—a woefully underserved market.”—Pat Hughes
Book covers Obj-C nicely. It has very little to do with ios or osx development. I skipped over most of the book. Someone that was learning their first language could get by with this book. It will get you right up to the point where you want to start creating gui and mobile apps. This book is what I read next.
