This book was written using Swift 2.0, Alamofire 3.1, Xcode 7, and iOS 9.
All code samples included.
This book is for:

  • Software developers getting started with iOS but experienced in other languages
  • Front-end devs looking to implement native UIs for iOS apps (no CSS, oh noes!)
  • Back-end devs tasked with getting the data into the user’s hands on iOS
  • Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Tizen, Symbian & Palm OS devs looking to expand their web service backed apps to iOS
  • Anyone whose boss is standing over their shoulder asking why the data isn’t showing up in the tableview yet

This book isn’t for:

  • People completely new to programming, you should have a decent grasp of at least one object-oriented programming language or have completed several intro to iOS tutorials
  • Designers, managers, UX pros, … It’s a programming book. All the monospace font inserts will probably drive you crazy.
  • Cross-platform developers dedicated to their tools (including HTML5 & Xamarin), this is all Swift & native UI, all the time
  • Programmers building apps with no webservice interaction
  • Game devs
