      Comments about oreilly iOS 8 Swift Programming Cookbook:

      I was particularly interested in learning more about CoreData. Paul Hagarty had a great demo in his Stanford iOS course (Objective-C). This book was excellent bridging to swift implementation.

      Thank you,

        Comments about oreilly iOS 8 Swift Programming Cookbook:

        so i got this book after watching vandad's videos. i purchased the videos first as i always first books but thought this time i change and instead buy the videos

        well, it turns out the videos were better than i expected and i have just finished watching them. i also then bought the book to complement the videos

        i am so glad the book and the videos are all swift based. i am still going through the cloud chapter and homekit. i have no homekit accessories yet but the book teaches us about setting up a homekit accessory simulator right on our macs so it's really good

        it's a rather big book in ebook format. i don't have a printed version so it must be very heavy when it is printed?
