Summary

Objective-C Fundamentals is a hands-on tutorial that leads you from your first line of Objective-C code through the process of building native apps for the iPhone using the latest version of the SDK. You'll learn to avoid the most common pitfalls, while exploring the expressive Objective-C language through numerous example projects.

About the Technology

The iPhone is a sophisticated device, and mastering the Objective C language is the key to unlocking its awesome potential as a mobile computing platform. Objective C's concise, rich syntax and feature set, when matched with the iPhone SDK and the powerful Xcode environment, offers a developers from any background a smooth transition into mobile app development for the iPhone.

About the Book

Objective-C Fundamentals guides you gradually from your first line of Objective-C code through the process of building native apps for the iPhone. Starting with chapter one, you'll dive into iPhone development by building a simple game that you can run immediately. You'll use tools like Xcode 4 and the debugger that will help you become a more efficient programmer. By working through numerous easy-to-follow examples, you'll learn practical techniques and patterns you can use to create solid and stable apps. And you'll find out how to avoid the most common pitfalls.

No iOS or mobile experience is required to benefit from this book but familiarity with programming in general is helpful.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF, ePub, and Kindle eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.

What's Inside
  • Objective-C from the ground up
  • Developing with Xcode 4
  • Examples that work unmodified on iPhone

Well-Posed Linear Systems (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)
Well-Posed Linear Systems (Encyclopedia of Mathematics and its Applications)
This main purpose of this book is to present the basic theory of well-posed
linear systems in a form which makes it available to a larger audience, thereby
opening up the possibility of applying it to a wider range of problems. Up to
now the theory has existed in a distributed form, scattered between different
papers with

Markov Chains (Cambridge Series in Statistical and Probabilistic Mathematics)
Markov Chains (Cambridge Series in Statistical and Probabilistic Mathematics)
In this rigorous account the author studies both discrete-time and continuous-time chains. A distinguishing feature is an introduction to more advanced topics such as martingales and potentials, in the established context of Markov chains. There are applications to simulation, economics, optimal control, genetics, queues and many other topics, and...
Pro Bash Programming: Scripting the GNU/Linux Shell (Expert's Voice in Linux)
Pro Bash Programming: Scripting the GNU/Linux Shell (Expert's Voice in Linux)

The bash shell is a complete programming language, not merely a glue to combine external Linux commands. By taking full advantage of shell internals, shell programs can perform as snappily as utilities written in C or other compiled languages. And you will see how, without assuming Unix lore, you can write professional bash 4.0 programs through...
