Objective-C is the standard programming language for application development on the iOS and 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 sixth edition of this book has been updated to cover the latest changes introduced with iOS 7, OS X Mavericks, and Xcode 5.
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.
“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
