A Swift Kickstart is the perfect book for the experienced developer who wants to get serious about learning the Swift programming language.
As the language matures and improves, this book changes to reflect the latest best practices and coding style. This second edition to the best-selling Swift introduction has been updated to the Swift 5.5 release.
Note, as this book is an introduction to the language, we do not cover the async/await syntax.
Working your way through this book is a great way to learn the language of the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.
About this book
It's never been easier to get started with Swift as you work along using either Swift Playgrounds or Xcode playgrounds. This means you can code along on a Mac or an iPad.
The book begins with an introduction to basic components of programming in Swift: functions, variables and constants, collections, and types from the Swift Standard Library.
In the second part, we create and use our own enumerations, structs, classes, and protocols. You’ll learn how to take advantage of value types and learn the Swifty way to craft your code.
The third part introduces you to error handling, and digs deeper into functions in Swift, generics, and higher-order functions.
Before you know it you’ll find yourself fluent in the language used to write to Apple platforms and beyond.
What you need
You need a Mac or an iPad running the latest version of Xcode or Swift Playgrounds.
The book is best viewed as an ePub on a device that supports scroll view. Mobi and pdf versions are available as well.
The new update is v1100 in epub, mobi, and pdf. The previous version is v1000. I've left it up for people who don't want to move to Xcode 13 before it comes out of beta. Once it is out of beta I'll remove the previous version.
