Who Is This Book For?
This book is for intermediate iOS developers who already know the basics of iOS and Swift development but want to learn how to use WatchKit to develop hybrid apps, Glances, and notifications for the Apple Watch.
If you’re a complete beginner to iOS and Swift development, you can follow along with this book as well because the tutorials are always in a step-by-step format. However, there may be some gaps in your knowledge, so you might want to go through the iOS Apprentice Series first.
