Swift is a programming language for creating iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS apps. Swift builds on the best of C and Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an opportunity to reimagine how software development works.
This book provides:
- A tour of the language.
- A detailed guide delving into each language feature.
- A formal reference for the language.
The Swift Programming Language
Masterfully written reference outlining to the nth degree every aspect of the Swift Programming Language. The comparisons to earlier similiar languages is useful and acts as a conduit to those with previous programming experience.
This is a very clear and concise explanation of how the language is constructed and acts as a valuable ‘Free’ tool that any beginner intending to create an App will be more than interested in.
Best Cookbook from apple!
Swift looks really elegant.
