Programming in Objective-C, 5th Edition

Book Description

in , Fifth Edition 
Updated for OS X Mountain Lion, iOS 6, and Xcode 4.5

Programming in Objective-C is a concise, carefully written tutorial on the basics of Objective-C and programming for Apple's iOS and OS X platforms.

The book makes no assumptions about prior experience with object-oriented programming languages or with the C language (which Objective-C is based upon). Because of this, both beginners and experienced programmers alike can use this book to quickly and effectively learn the fundamentals of Objective-C. Readers can also learn the concepts of object-oriented programming without having to first learn all of the intricacies of the underlying C programming language.

This unique approach to learning, combined with many small program examples and exercises at the end of each chapter, makes Programming in Objective-C ideally suited for either classroom use or self-study.

This edition has been fully updated to incorporate new features in Objective-C programming introduced with Xcode 4.4 (OS X Mountain Lion) and Xcode 4.5 (iOS 6.)

“The best book on any programming language that I’ve ever read. If you want to learn Objective-C, buy it.”–Calvin Wolcott

“An excellent resource for a new programmer who wants to learn Objective-C as their first programming language–a woefully underserved market.”–Pat Hughes
