With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form—the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes—so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.

This practical guide teaches programmers (of even a very basic level) how to build applications for OS X and iOS 8, using the Cocoa Framework, the new Xcode IDE, and Swift—Apple’s new programming language. You’ll quickly learn the basics for building Mac, iPhone, and iPad apps.

  • Write programs using Swift within the Cocoa Framework
  • Learn the similarities and differences between OS X and iOS
  • Get real-world applications of advanced Cocoa and Cocoa Touch features

    Comments about oreilly Swift Development with Cocoa:

    This is another great Day 1 book from o'Reilly for Apples new language. Very happy with the wide coverage of topics and the discussion of the subject matter. Looking forward to the final release.

    Covers everything I wanted to know about iOS and Mac development with Swift, and explains Swift really well.
