We have used this material many times at our iOS bootcamps at Big Nerd Ranch. It is well tested and has helped thousands of people become. But this is also an exciting time to be a macOS and iOS developer. There is a lot to Last, Apple wants Swift to be a general purpose programming language. This workbook contains the final four chapters from our Beginning iOS programming guide, and so if you have taken the iOS Essentials Bootcamp in the last.

We have learned that people learn best when these concepts are introduced as they are needed. This is not a time for multitasking; you will need to concentrate. The big ideas take a few days to understand. However, there will be times when you will have to take our word for it. Here is what we have learned over the years of teaching iOS programming:

We would like to take this chance to thank them. First and foremost we would like to thank Joe Conway for his work on the earlier editions of this book. He authored the first three editions and contributed greatly to the fourth edition as well. Many of the words in this book are still his, and for that, we are very grateful.
Juan Pablo Claude wrote some of the content and contributed his expertise and opinions to make this book even better. His work is greatly appreciated. A couple other people went above and beyond with their help on this book. They are Mikey Ward and Chris Morris.
You must learn the Swift language.
Swift is the recommended development language for iOS. The first two chapters of this book are designed to give you a working knowledge of Swift. You must master the big ideas.
These include things like delegation, archiving, and the proper use of view controllers. The big ideas take a few days to understand. When you reach the halfway point of this book, you will understand these big ideas. You must master the frameworks.
The eventual goal is to know how to use every method of every class in every framework in iOS. This is a project for a lifetime: There are hundreds of classes and thousands of methods available in iOS, and Apple adds more classes and methods with every release of iOS. In this book, you will be introduced to each of the subsystems that make up the iOS SDK, but you will not study each one deeply.
It is well tested and has helped thousands of people become iOS developers. We sincerely hope that it proves useful to you. Prerequisites This book assumes that you are already motivated to learn to write iOS apps. We will not spend any time convincing you that the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch are compelling pieces of technology.
We also assume that you have some experience programming and know something about object- oriented programming. If this is not true, you should probably start with Swift Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide. What Has Changed in the Sixth Edition? All of the code in this book has been updated for Swift 3. We have come to love Swift at Big Nerd Ranch and believe you will, too. Other additions include new chapters on debugging and accessibility and improved coverage of Core Data.
This edition assumes that the reader is using Xcode 8. Besides these obvious changes, we made thousands of tiny improvements that were inspired by questions from our readers and our students.
Every chapter of this book is just a little better than the corresponding chapter from the fifth edition. At the same time, you will type in a lot of code and build a bunch of applications. By the end of the book, you will have knowledge and experience. However, all the knowledge should not and, in this book, will not come first.
That is the traditional way of learning we have all come to know and hate.
Instead, we take a learn-while- doing approach. Development concepts and actual coding go together. Here is what we have learned over the years of teaching iOS programming: We have learned what ideas people must grasp to get started programming, and we focus on that subset. We have learned that people learn best when these concepts are introduced as they are needed.
We have learned that programming knowledge and experience grow best when they grow together.
Many times we will ask you to start typing in code before you understand it. We realize that you may feel like a trained monkey typing in a bunch of code that you do not fully grasp.
But the best way to learn coding is to find and fix your typos. Far from being a drag, this basic debugging is where you really learn the ins and outs of the code. That is why we encourage you to type in the code yourself. You could just download it, but copying and pasting is not programming. We want better for you and your skills.
What does this mean for you, the reader? To learn this way takes some trust — and we appreciate yours. It also takes patience. As we lead you through these chapters, we will try to keep you comfortable and tell you what is happening. However, there will be times when you will have to take our word for it.
