In The Swift Developer’s Cookbook, renowned author Erica Sadun joins powerful strategies with ready-to-use Swift code for solving everyday development challenges.
As in all of Sadun’s programming best-sellers, The Swift Developer’s Cookbook translates modern best practices into dozens of well-tested, easy-to-apply solutions. This book’s code examples were created in response to real-world questions from working developers to reflect Swift’s newest capabilities and best practices. Each chapter groups related tasks together. You can jump straight to your solution without having to identify the right class or framework first.
Sadun covers key Swift development concepts, shows you how to write robust and efficient code, and helps you avoid common pitfalls other developers struggle with. She offers expert strategies for working with this immensely powerful language, taking into account Swift’s rapid evolution and its migration tools.
Whether you’re moving to modern Swift from Objective-C, from older versions of the Swift language, or from the world of non-Apple languages, this guide will help you master both the “how” and “why” of effective Swift development. Industry recruiters are scrambling to find Swift developers who can solve real problems and produce effective working code. Get this book, and you’ll be ready.
