June 2011 | Architecture and Analysis, Cookbooks

Packt is pleased to announce Cocoa and Objective-C Cookbook, a new book that will guide developers towards creating quality Cocoa applications with advanced UI concepts. Written by Jeff Hawkins, this book is full of recipes which can help users add Core Animation, gestures, Key Value Coding, and QuickTime to applications. It will also help readers implement the latest Objective-C features and incorporate them into their applications.

Cocoa includes primary frameworks such as AppKit and Core Foundation that provide common building blocks for all Mac applications, as well as specialized frameworks. Objective- C is a simple computer language designed to enable sophisticated object-oriented programming. It has been designed to give C full object-oriented programming capabilities, and to do so in a simple and straightforward way.

Cocoa and Objective-C Cookbook is written in Packt’s cookbook style, offering solutions using a recipe-based approach. Each recipe contains step-by-step instructions followed by an analysis of what was done in each task and other useful information. The cookbook approach means readers can dive into whatever recipes they want in no particular order.

Cocoa and Objective-C Cookbook is a useful guide containing recipes for building custom views, adding support for gestures and working with keyboard and mouse events. Alongside essential recipes for working with databases and debugging, OS X developers will also find fun recipes covering animation and multimedia. It will help developer’s move beyond the basics of developing with Apple's Cocoa framework.

Mac OS X Developers who want to move beyond the basics and dive straight into advanced Cocoa topics will find this book to be an interesting and beneficial read. The book is out now and available from Packt. For more information please visit:- www.packtpub.com/cocoa-and-objective-c-cookbook/book
