Description - Objective-C Programming by Aaron Hillegass

Want to write iOS apps or desktop Mac applications? This introduction to programming and the Objective-C language is your first step on the journey from someone who uses apps to someone who writes them. Based on Big Nerd Ranch's popular Objective-C Bootcamp, Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide covers C, Objective-C, and the common programming idioms that enable developers to make the most of Apple technologies. Compatible with Xcode 5, iOS 7, and OS X Mavericks (10.9), this guide features short chapters and an engaging style to keep you motivated and moving forward. At the same time, it encourages you to think critically as a programmer. Here are some of the topics covered: * Using Xcode, Apple's documentation, and other tools * Programming basics: variables, loops, functions, etc. * Objects, classes, methods, and messages * Pointers, addresses, and memory management with ARC * Properties and Key-Value Coding (KVC) * Class extensions * Categories * Classes from the Foundation framework * Blocks * Delegation, target-action, and notification design patterns * Key-Value Observing (KVO) * Runtime basics
