Cocoa Programming: A Quick-Start Guide for Developersby Daniel Steinberg
Synopses & Reviews
Cocoa Programming: A Quick-Start Guide for Developers shows you how to get productive with Cocoa-fast! We won't walk you through every class and method in the API (but we will show you where to find that information). Instead, we'll jump right in and start building a web browser using Cocoa. In just a few minutes you'll have something that works. A couple of minutes more, and you'll have code in your custom controller, listening for notifications and call-backs. Soon you'll have the functionality you'd expect in a full browser. And that's just the first few chapters...
Book News Annotation:
For experienced developers who are new to the Mac or iPhone platform, Steinberg, who writes articles and books on Apple and other technology, explains how to use Apple's Cocoa frameworks to create Mac applications for Mac OS X, as well as the iPhone and iPad. He describes Objective-C, the language of Cocoa; installing the tools; the fundamental techniques of creating a Cocoa application; more sophisticated methods; and blocks and methods for working with concurrency. The book focuses on techniques and not APIs, and assumes knowledge of object-oriented programming and language that has a structure like C. Distributed by O'Reilly Media.
