A complete introduction to the Objective-C language for Mac OS X and iPhone development
Objective-C has become the standard programming language for application development on the Mac OS X and iPhone platforms. A powerful yet simple object-oriented programming language that’s based on the C programming language, Objective-C is widely available not only on OS X but across many operating systems that support the gcc compiler, including Linux, Unix, and Windows systems.
Programming in Objective-C 2.0 provides the new programmer a complete, step-by-step introduction to the Objective-C language. The ebook 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 second edition of this ebook has been updated and expanded to cover Objective-C 2.0. It shows not only how to take advantage of the Foundation framework’s rich built-in library of classes but also how to use the iPhone SDK to develop programs designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
'The best book on any programming language that I’ve ever read. If you want to learn Objective-C, buy it.'
'An excellent resource for a new programmer who wants to learn Objective-C as their first programming language–a woefully underserved market.'
