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.
Can not wait for the sequel: "Swift's coming home" ;-)
Many great examples
Very good introduction to Swift.
Certainly looks better than Objective C. Very thoroughly designed—and a well written language manual. (Now how do we get this into the browser?)
