This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Immediately following Apple’s announcement of the Swift language in early summer, the language became an instant hit, jumping into leading indexes that track programming language popularity. While developers can build apps from scratch with Swift, many Apple developers will want to learn how to take advantage of Swift in existing projects. In this compact, to-the-point guide, author Maurice Kelly steps readers through the basics of the Swift language–including types, syntax, variables, strings, and classes–and explores how to use Swift with existing projects. Maurice explores how to use Swift APIs in Objective-C and how to mix and match Swift and Objective-C files in an app.
Developers will gain a solid foundation for using Swift in their apps after reading this book.
