Product Description

From the Back Cover

Programming in Objective-C, Fifth Edition
Updated for OS X Mountain Lion, iOS 6, and Xcode 4.5

Objective-C has become 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 fifth edition of this book has been updated to cover the new features in Objective-C programming introduced with Xcode 4.4 (OS X Mountain Lion) and Xcode 4.5 (iOS 6). It also includes coverage of Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) and 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).

Its a really great book for beginners. I've read several other obj-c and iOS books, and hands down this one is the best.

Best of all the book doesn't gloss over topics. It breaks them down, and for some areas, even has a comment for more to come.

Make sure you do all the exercises included! They might seem trivial, but there are always subtle errors, you might not pick up from first glance.

This book has become a classic. iOS 7 may be around the corner, but the graceful run through of Objective C features this book provides is unparalleled. Objective C is a super set of C; it adds features from SmallTalk. If you know C, then this book is a useful primer on Objective C features and makes a good reference. A must have on any iOS bookshelf as a proof of Objective C proficiency.

Good for an intermediate programmer. I wouldn't say its the best intro book out there but it is a pretty decent book. Exercises are good and sample solutions can be found on forums which is nice.

I've read some programming books and this would rank in the elite. Clear, easy with lots of examples and the code works.
This book makes sense.
