There's a fast growing audience of Mac OS X developers who are getting comfortable with Apple's Cocoa framework and now want to take their skills to the next level. Many of them began with Aaron Hillegass's classic book, Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X. Now, in More Cocoa Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide, Hillegass and colleague Juan Pablo Claude show experienced Cocoa developers how to build Cocoa applications that work better and do more than ever before. Starting from a basic sample application, you will walk through adding powerful new functionality, one step at a time. As you do, you'll master valuable Cocoa tips and tricks that can't be found in any other book. The authors' detailed, example-rich coverage includes:

    • Uncovering the secrets of Cocoa's text system–and making the most of it
    • Incorporating support for Spotlight, Quick Look, AppleScript, and other advanced OS X platform technologies
    • Providing more effective help and accessibility features
    • Delivering applications as packages
    • Implementing automatic updates via Sparkle
    • Using unit testing to deliver more reliable code
    • Incorporating graphics and animations into your software

    ...and much more!

    About the Author:

    Juan Pablo Claude
    Juan Pablo Claude is originally from Santiago, Chile and came to the US to attend graduate school in chemistry at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After earning his Ph.D., Juan Pablo became a professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, teaching and doing research in the area of physical inorganic chemistry. In his research, Juan Pablo often had to write data acquisition analysis programs, leading to his interest in computer programming and technologies. After spending several years in academics, Juan Pablo decided to make a career out of computers. He joined the Big Nerd Ranch in late 2005 as a Cocoa and Django programmer.

    Juan Pablo cut his teeth programming in C for PCs running DOS to squeeze data out of recalcitrant instruments during graduate school. He then moved on to write data analysis applications in C++ for Windows. When OS X was released he was immediately compelled to return to the Mac and he hasn't looked back since. These days, he is delighted to write Objective-C and Python code in such a cooperative platform.

    Aaron Hillegass
    Aaron Hillegass is the founder of Big Nerd Ranch and the developer of the very popular Campwhere iPhone app. A former employee at NeXT and Apple, he has 20 years experience with Objective-C and Cocoa. Aaron wrote Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X, the standard text on developing Mac applications.
