iOS Swift 24-Hour Trainer combines book and video lessons in Apple's Swift programming language to prepare you to build iPhone and iPad apps—and distribute them through the Appstore. First, this approachable text covers the fundamentals of Swift by introducing you to iOS development in this language, and presenting best practices for setting up a development environment and using variables, statements, expressions, operators, functions, and closures. Next, you explore common tasks, such as alert views, table views, and collection views. You then deepen your knowledge of Swift by considering network programming and local data storage. Finally, this engaging resource dives into slightly more advanced concepts, such as tab bars, web views, the accelerometer, camera, photo library, Google maps, and core location.
Swift was designed by Apple to incorporate modern scripting features while offering simpler, cleaner syntax than Objective-C to maintain a minimal and easy to read style. This more expressive code offers numerous key features, such as closures unified with function pointers, tuples and multiple value returns, generics, and functional programming patterns.
