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.
I loved this book, I followed along easily and could always look up things I didn't understand.
A whole new language, a whole new start
Thanks Apple for the new development effort you put in!
Generally good, but some things that should be in the "main" of the book, like attributes, had a small section in the language reference part and wasn't very clear. Therefore I give the book a 3/5.
