Prerequisites: Programming experience with a C-based object-oriented language such as Java, C++, C# or Objective-C.

Swift for Programmers

  • Teaches Apple’s new Swift programming language using the Deitel signature live-code approach—features numerous complete Swift programs with thousands of lines of proven code.
  • Introduces Swift using an early classes and objects approach, then moves on to more advanced topics, including closures, tuples, arrays, dictionaries, stored and computed properties, initialization, deinitialization, structures, enumerations, inheritance, polymorphism, protocols, generics, operator overloading, optionals and optional chaining, extensions, patterns and more.

iOS 8® for Programmers: An App-Driven Approach with Swift

  • We take a leadership role, teaching iOS 8 app development using Swift rather than Objective-C.
  • Covers only  the Swift language features needed to develop the seven complete iOS 8 apps in the book.
  • The app-driven approach discusses each new technology in the context of a fully coded iOS 8 app, with syntax shading, detailed code walkthroughs and sample outputs.
  • Chapter 9, App Store and App Business Issues, walks students through what makes a great app, the app submission process, marketing their apps and more.

Supplements Available with the Academic Bundle

The Access Code Cards for the Academic Packages include access to self-review questions (with answers), short-answer questions, programming exercises and projects, and selected videos.
