Description


Get valuable hands-on experience with Swift 3, the latest version of Apple's programming language. With this practical guide, skilled programmers with little or no knowledge of Apple development will learn how to code with Swift 3 by developing three complete, tightly linked versions of the Notes application for the OS X, iOS, and watchOS platforms.

In the process, you'll learn Swift's fundamentals, including its syntax and features, along with the basics of the Cocoa, CocoaTouch, and WatchKit frameworks. This book teaches you how to use common design patterns for Swift, how to structure an application for Apple's platforms, and how to submit working apps to the App Store.

Divided into four distinct parts, this book includes:

  • Swift 2 basics: Learn Swift's basic building blocks and features for object-oriented development
  • OS X app development: Set up the document model, build out features, and sync data with iCloud
  • iOS app development: Use multimedia, contacts, location, notifications, and iCloud files to build a fully featured iOS Notes app
  • Advanced app extensions: Build an Apple Watch app, and learn how to debug, monitor, and test all three of your Swift apps

He has a BA in History, and a PhD in Computing/HCI, and has written nearly a dozen technical, game design, and mobile development books, mostly for O'Reilly Media.Paris can be found on Twitter @parisba. He still thinks digital watches are a pretty neat idea.For more info visit Secret Lab or paris.id.au.Jon Manning is a world renown iOS development trainer and writer, game designer and mobile software engineering wizard.He has co-authored two books on mobile development and enjoys re-implementing such things as OpenGL and the Objective-C runtime (in his spare time).Jon is also a researcher in Human-Computer Interaction working towards a PhD.Tim Nugent pretends to be a mobile app developer, game designer, PhD student, and now he even pretends to be an author. When he isn't busy avoiding being found out as a fraud, he spends most of his time designing and creating little apps and games he won't let anyone see.
