The Joy Of Swift: How To Program IOS Applications Using Apple Swift Even If You've Never Programmed Before

How to Program iOS Applications Using Apple Swift, even if you've never programmed beforeHave you ever wanted to design your own iOS application but thought it would be too difficult or maybe you just don't know where to start? Have you found the amount of information on the Internet either too daunting or not geared for your skill set or worse-- just plain boring? Are you interested in learning to program your own apps and have some fun along the way? If so, then The Joy of Swift by Alan Forbes is the book for you!! The Joy of Swift teaches the total beginner how to build next-generation iOS apps with Swift, Apple’s latest programming language.  If you've programmed with Xcode before or if you know some Objective C already, this is probably not the book for you-- this book is for those who are just starting out and don't know where to begin.This book’s straightforward, step-by-step approach helps you quickly master Swift’s core concepts, structure, and syntax and use Swift to write safe, powerful, modern code. In just a few hours you’ll be building a user interface and programming code that interacts with it. Most chapters stand alone and cover just one specific topic, such as working with Maps, keeping it as simple as possible so you get the basic idea, not an exhaustive (an exhausting!) examination of every detail.    This will not be the only book about Swift you'll ever need but it should be the first one.  Step-by-step instructions designed for beginners carefully walk you through the most common Swift development tasks. Practical, hands-on examples show you how to apply what you learn.

I've always been curious about iOS programming and this book gave me a good starting point. It is very easy to follow, provides plenty of examples, and generally helps understand what iOS coding is about. I would recommend this book to someone who knows nothing or very little about iOS development and is interested in picking it up quickly. It's a bargain too!

I actually backed this project on Kickstarter and have supported Alan's work for awhile now - he does an excellent job making this stuff understandable and particularly, he does so from a position of actual development, not just lame, canned exercises....well worth your money (Disclosure - I am a backer of this and other books by this author, but I am not compensated by the author or anyone else for my review(s). This review is based solely on my impressions of the book as a purchaser / backer.)

I'm new to Swift, and found this a bit too simplistic. It was helpful to a certain degree, but there were lots of basic things missing. I take issue with someone's review, "The Best Book On Swift Programming...Period." I find that hard to believe. I have learned a lot more from various options online. Kindle Unlimited programming books are usually a wash. Give it a try, but don't settle.

HOLY HECK! THIS BOOK KICKS BUTT!I've tried reading several other coding books in the past, but they were always too complicated and boring and the author didn't understand how to break things down for newbies.But this book is different. It's PERFECT for anyone new to Swift and iOS/OSX programming.This book is super thorough. It starts with the basics so even the most recent beginners (like me) can understand what's going on, and then progressively gets more and more complex. Each chapter builds on the one before, so you're never lost.I can't recommend this book highly enough. It should be the first book you buy if you're interested in Swift programming.You know, in the past I've always thought of coding as kind of a pain. But with this book, it truly can become a "joy", as the title declares.Don't hesitate. Pick up a copy RIGHT NOW. You won't regret it.I know I sure don't.

This book takes a complex topic and makes it easy to comprehend & understand. The examples are very helpful, Alan's writing style and presentation methodology are clear and consistent. I highly recommended this book to anyone who is interested in developing for the Apple platforms.

This is a great book for beginners, well organized and clearly written. I never coded anything in Xcode before and didn't know where to start. Now I feel like I can actually do something useful.
