Objective-C Programmer's Reference provides the tools necessary to write software in Objective-C—the language of choice for developing iOS and OS X applications. Author Carlos Oliveira begins from the basic building blocks of the language. He shows how to create correct and efficient applications by applying your knowledge of object-oriented and structured programming. This book:

  • Takes you quickly through fundamental concepts such as interfaces and class implementations.
  • Provides a concise reference to the Foundation Framework that is all-important when programming in Objective-C.
  • Highlights key differences between Objective-C and other popular languages such as Java or Python.
  • Provides the fundamentals of Cocoa and Cocoa Touch, which are the standard for OS X and iOS development.
Objective-C Programmer's Reference makes extensive use of concepts already mastered by developers who are fluent in other languages such as C++, Java, Perl, and Python. The author’s approach is logical and structured, and even novice developers will have an easy time absorbing the most important topics necessary to program in Objective-C.

Objective-C Programmer's Reference is a book for professional developers in Objective-C, or those who are moving to Objective-C from other languages. The book is written for readers who lack the time to invest in more traditional books, which usually spend hundreds of pages to explain concepts that are part of the working programmer’s standard vocabulary.

Objective-C Programmers Reference provides the tools necessary to build working solutions in Objective-Cthe language of choice for developing iOS and OS X applications for iPhones, iPads, and Mac notebooks and desktops. Author Carlos Oliveira begins from the basic building blocks of the language.

Provides the fundamentals of writing Cocoa and Cocoa Touch applications, which are the standard for Mac OS X and iOS development. Objective-C Programmers Reference is not a large book filled with introductory topics already well-understood by professional developers. Discussion of broadly-understood concepts such as branching and looping is blissfully short and fast-paced. The book assumes and makes extensive use of those and other concepts already mastered by developers who are fluent in other languages such as C, Java, Perl, and Python. Reference material is included for quick answers to common questions on the Foundation Framework, on compiling, on the pre-processor, and more.
