More Information
Learn
  • Switch your programming concepts from imperative to Functional reactive programming
  • Improve your app’s maintenance by developing with a different paradigm
  • Create unit tests and automation tests using the ReactiveCocoa framework
  • Create clear code that is very easy to read
  • Get accustomed to migrating mobile apps to the Reactive way of programming
  • Perform asynchronous calls and join them later
About

Reactive programming helps you write applications that are more powerful and efficient. You can write more software, help more people, and create applications that scale. Reactive programming is a growing paradigm that we will help you set to work in Swift.

Reactive Programming with Swift guides you through migrating from the traditional way of developing to the new ReactiveCocoa framework, which uses Swift as its main programming language. You will learn how to develop with this framework, debug code, create unit tests, use additional frameworks, and convert a traditional framework into a ReactiveCocoa one.

Starting with a crash course on the fundamental concepts of Reactive programming, we’ll set you up so you’re ready to create reactive applications. We’ll then move on to topics such as Graphical events, Streaming, and Core data, which will help you dive deeper with advanced programming. The concept of switching your programming concepts from imperative to functional reactive programming will also be covered. By the end of this book, you will be able to successfully create highly functional apps using Swift.

Features
  • Build highly responsive applications with this practical introduction to Reactive programming
  • This book uses ReactiveCocoa, the most popular solution for Reactive Programming on iOS to install, debug, and develop a framework with Swift
  • Switch from the traditional programming style to the reactive paradigm to code your first reactive applications with ease

Cecil Costa

Cecil Costa, also know as Eduardo Campos in Latin countries, is a Euro-Brazilian freelance developer who has been learning about computers since getting his first 286 in 1990. From then on, he kept learning about programming languages, computer architecture, and computer science theory.

Learning and teaching are his passions; this is the reason why he worked as a trainer and an author. He has been giving on-site courses for companies such as Ericsson, Roche, TVE (a Spanish television channel), and lots of others. He is also the author of Swift Cookbook First Edition and Swift 2 Blueprints, both by Packt Publishing. He will soon publish an iOS 10 programming video course.

Nowadays, Cecil Costa teaches through online platforms, helping people from across the world.

In 2008, he founded his own company, Conglomo Limited (http://www.conglomo.es), which offers development and training programs both on-site and online.

Throughout his professional career, he has created projects by himself and also worked for different companies from small to big ones, such as IBM, Qualcomm, Spanish Lottery, and DIA%.

He develops a variety of computer languages (such as Swift, C++, Java, Objective-C, JavaScript, Python, and so on) in different environments (iOS, Android, Web, Mac OS X, Linux, Unity, and so on) because he thinks that a good developer needs to learn all kinds of programming languages to open their mind; only after this will they really understand what development is.

Nowadays, Cecil is based in the UK, where he is progressing in his professional career as an iOS team lead.
