Learning Cocoa with Objective-C: Developing for the Mac and iOS App Stores

Buy
We’ve been developing for the Cocoa framework from when the Mac first supported it. Since then, we’ve seen the ecosystem of Cocoa and Objective-C development evolve from a small programmer’s niche to one of the most important and influential development environments in the world. (In fact, as 2012 closes, Objective-C is the third most popular programming language according to the TIOBE index, up from fifth most popular in 2011.)

Over the years, we’ve built a lot of large, complex iOS and OS X software, shipping it to millions upon millions of users along the way. We’ve picked up a deep understanding of the toolset, frameworks, and programming language, an understanding crucial to building the best possible software for iOS and OS X. Apple constantly changes things, as the recent introduction of the svelte iPad mini and the stretched iPhone 5 show, but the knowledge necessary to bend the development tools, frameworks and languages to your will stays fairly constant. This book will give you the knowledge, confidence, and appreciation for iOS and OS X development with Cocoa, Cocoa Touch, and Objective-C.

Get up to speed on Cocoa and Objective-C, and start developing applications on the iOS and OS X platforms. If you don’t have experience with Apple’s developer tools, no problem! From object-oriented programming to storing app data in iCloud, this book covers everything you need to build apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

You’ll learn how to work with the Xcode IDE, Objective-C’s Foundation library, and other developer tools such as Event Kit framework and Core Animation. Along the way, you’ll build example projects, including a simple Objective-C application, a custom view, a simple video player application, and an app that displays calendar events for the user.

  • Learn the application life cycle on OS X and iOS
  • Work with the user-interface system in Cocoa and Cocoa Touch
  • Use AV Foundation to display video and audio
  • Build apps that let users create, edit, and work with documents
  • Store data locally with the file system, or on the network with iCloud
  • Display lists or collections of data with table views and collection views
  • Interact with the outside world with Core Location and Core Motion
  • Use blocks and operation queues for multiprocessing

Computer hardware has experienced the most dramatic improvement in capabilities and costs ever known to humankind. In just 40 years, we have seen room-sized computers, with little more processing power than today's pocket calculators, evolve into fingernail-sized devices with near supercomputer performance. This miracle has been made possible...

Somerset, one of England's most rural counties, has for centuries depended on agriculture for much of its income. At the time these photographs were taken much of the county was suffering a downturn in agricultural output. A series of disastrous harvests in the 1880s and the loss of the corn laws. The poverty and hardship on the land...
