Swift is a new programming language for creating iOS, OS X, 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 have never done computer programming in the past. The book ‘The Swift Programming Language’ book has helped me understand code and I cant wait to start creating. I would reccomend to anybody who is new to programming to take a look at the book, I have found it really interesting!
Where do I start
This book assumes you know a fair bit about C; if you do, it should be child's play to find what you want.
Apple have refined the toolset and given developers an unparalleled opportunity to speak a new language. This guide is well thought out, comprehensive and sufficiently robust to keep seasoned experts and newcomers fully engaged.
