Book Description – Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide

Objective-C Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide is based on Big Nerd Ranch’s renowned Objective-C Bootcamp and covers C, Objective-C, and the basic programming idioms that enable developers to make the most of Apple technology. This guide includes concise chapters and an engaging manner to keep you motivated and moving forward using Xcode 5, iOS 7, and OS X Mavericks (10.9). At the same time, as a programmer, it encourages you to think critically.

Here are some of the themes that were discussed:

  • Key-Value Coding and Properties (KVC)
  • Extensions to classes
  • Categories
  • Blocks classes from the Foundation framework
  • Design patterns for delegation, target-action, and notification

Key Features

  • Comprehensive: delves into and explains a wide range of topics, not only in Obj-C but also in iOS and OS X.
  • Very well written, step-by-step, yet with a wealth of knowledge about why the code or concept works as it does.
  • The chapters are well-organized and short and sweet, providing a bite-sized approach to tackling this massive (and at times scary) learning challenge. It’s possible to complete one chapter per day, gaining knowledge, understanding, and confidence in the process.
  • You should complete all of the challenge exercises in each chapter. Don’t jeopardise your education by skipping them.
  • Finally, BNR provides a wealth of online tools, including a discussion forum, errata, and more.
