Swift Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide (3rd Edition)

Mikey Ward

Through this guide’s carefully constructed explanations and examples, you will develop an understanding of Swift grammar and the elements of effective Swift style – all thoroughly revised for Swift 5.3 and Xcode 12.
Based on Big Nerd Ranch’s popular Swift training and its well-tested materials and methodology, this guide teaches concepts and coding through hands-on exercises. You will explore Swift features in Xcode playgrounds, and you will end by building sample apps for the command line and for macOS and iOS.

What you’ll learn:

  • Organize data with the common standard library collection types.
  • Handle errors with the throw/catch pattern.
  • Define custom enumerations, structures, and classes.
  • Understand object initialization, lifetime, and memory management.
  • Deal with the absence of values using the Optional type.
  • Write flexible code with protocols, extensions, and generics
