The authors have a great way of making the complex frameworks seem extremely manageable

This book will take you through everything you need to know for iOS programming. The authors have a great way of making the complex frameworks seem extremely manageable, and you learn as you go. This is written for someone with basic programming experience, but you certainly don't have to be a great programmer. Highly recommend as a great learning tool for all the basics of iOS programming.

Resources

Should I read iOS Programming or Swift Programming first?

Both iOS Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide and Swift Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide use the Swift programming language. Our iOS guide covers iOS app development more generally without teaching Swift. The Swift guide is a deep dive into the language, rather than iOS development. If you are newer to iOS programming, we recommend that you start with the Swift book and then move onto our iOS guide.

Our iOS Programming and Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X guides are written for experienced programmers with knowledge of C and object-oriented programming, and have been updated for Swift. They are separate books, however. If you want to develop only iOS apps, there is no need to read Cocoa Programming. If you want to develop for the Mac only, there is no need to read iOS Programming.

If you've read either iOS Programming or Cocoa Programming and want to learn more about the back-end inner workings of things, read Advanced Mac OS X Programming.

(Of course, the best way to learn is in person. Meet us at the Ranch for our range of iOS bootcamps.)
