Programming in Objective-C, Fourth Edition

Updated for iOS 5 and ARC
Programming in Objective-C is a concise, carefully written tutorial on the basics of Objective-C and object-oriented programming for Apple's 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 C programming language. 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.


The fourth edition of this book has been updated to cover the significant changes that first appeared in iOS 5 and Xcode 4.2, including the use of Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) to improve and simplify memory management in Objective-C programs.

“The best book on any programming language that I’ve ever read. If you want to learn Objective-C, buy it.”—Calvin Wolcott

“An excellent resource for a new programmer who wants to learn Objective-C as their first programming language—a woefully underserved market.”—Pat Hughes

Synopsis:

Objective-C 2.0 is the powerful, flexible native programming language for three of the world's fastest growing platforms: Mac OS X, Apple's iPhone, and the iPod Touch. Thousands of developers want to write software for these platforms, but many don't want to read a large programming book. Programming in Objective-C LiveLessons is their solution: a complete video training course covering the essentials of both Objective-C and object-oriented programming. The only video tutorial of its kind, this DVD package is ideal for beginners and experienced programmers alike. Long-time Mac programmer Stephen Kochan assumes no experience with Objective-C, C, or objects. Using detailed examples, he illuminates language features such as classes, objects, methods, data types, expressions, inheritance, polymorphism, exception handling, notifications, and preprocessing. This bundle contains both Programming in Objective-C, 0321711394, the bestselling book on Objective-C, and Programming in Objective-C Live Lessons, Part I video training. This second edition has been updated for " Updated to cover the latest versions of Xcode (4.2) and the iPhone SDK (iOS5) " Detailed discussion of how to use Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) to improve and simplify memory management in Objective-C programming

Synopsis:

Programming in Objective-C, Fourth Edition

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

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, 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 fourth edition of this book has been updated to cover the significant changes that first appeared in iOS 5 and Xcode 4.2, including the use of Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) to improve and simplify memory management in Objective-C programs. It also 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).
