Publisher Comments:

Programming in Objective-C is a concise, carefully written tutorial on the basics of Objective-C and object-oriented programming for the iOS and Mac platforms.

The book makes no assumptions about prior experience with object-oriented programming languages or with the C language (which Objective-C is based upon). Because of this, both beginners and experienced programmers alike can use this book to quickly and effectively learn the fundamentals of Objective-C. Readers can also learn the concepts of object-oriented programming without having to first learn all of the intricacies of the underlying procedural language (C).

This unique approach to learning, combined with many small program examples and exercises at the end of each chapter, makes Programming in Objective-C ideally suited for either classroom use or self-study. While the Objective-C language itself has gone through relatively minor changes since the introduction of Objective-C 2.0, the Apple development tools that programmers use for Objective-C development on the Mac and on iOS have changed significantly in a very short period of time.

The third edition of Programming in Objective-C includes numerous updates and improvements throughout the book:

  • Improved organization for some chapters
  • Incorporation of feedback and suggestions from members of the author's forum for readers, including more detailed descriptions for some of the examples
  • A new introduction to blocks with examples
  • Replacement of deprecated methods with newer methods
  • Updated diagrams and steps for using Xcode 4
  • Synopsis:

    Programming in Objective-C, Third Edition

    An introduction to the Objective-C language for iOS and Mac OS X development

    Stephen G. Kochan

    Objective-C has become the standard programming language for application development on the iOS and Mac OS X platforms. A powerful yet simple object-oriented programming language that’s based on C, Objective-C is widely available not only on Apple platforms but across many operating systems that support the gcc compiler, including Linux, Unix, and Windows.

    Programming in Objective-C provides the new programmer a complete, step-by-step introduction to the Objective-C language. The book does not assume previous experience with either C or object-oriented programming languages, and it includes many detailed, practical examples of how to put Objective-C to use in your everyday programming needs.

    The third edition of Programming in Objective-C features updated and expanded coverage of the latest developments in Objective-C as well as new tools such as Xcode 4. It shows how to take advantage of the Foundation framework’s rich built-in library of classes and provides an introduction to iOS programming.

    About the Author

    Stephen Kochan is the author and coauthor of several bestselling titles on the C language, including Programming in C (Sams, 2004), Programming in ANSI C (Sams, 1994), and Topics in C Programming (Wiley, 1991), and several Unix titles, including Exploring the Unix System (Sams, 1992) and Unix Shell Programming (Sams, 2003). He has been programming on Macintosh computers since the introduction of the first Mac in 1984, and he wrote Programming C for the Mac as part of the Apple Press Library. In 2003 Kochan wrote Programming in Objective-C (Sams, 2003), and followed that with another Mac-related title, Beginning AppleScript (Wiley, 2004).
