About this book

Swift is the definitive language for Apple development today. It's a vital part of any iOS and macOS developer's skillset, helping them to build the most impressive and popular apps on the App Store - the sort of apps that are essential to iPhone and iPad users every day. With version 4.0, the Swift team has added new features to improve the development experience, making it easier to get the results you want and customers expect.

Inside, you'll find the key features of Swift 4.0 and quickly learn how to use the newest updates to your development advantage. From Objective-C interoperability and ARC to closures and concurrency, this advanced Swift guide will develop your expertise and help you become fluent in this vital programming language.

We'll give you an in-depth knowledge of some of the most sophisticated elements of Swift development, including protocol extensions, error-handling, design patterns, and concurrency. We'll guide you on how to use and apply them in your own projects. You'll see how to leverage the power of protocol-oriented programming to write flexible and easier-to-manage code.

It's well explained book about Swift.
Author does not comply with Apple styleguide. On pointing this out, the author (kind of) denies. I was very annoyed by this stubborn "I know better" approach. The book should adopt the Swift 4 style guidelines instead of sticking to old Swift 2 that are not preferred any more by apple. This made me feel like the book is full of other mistakes (which I have not proven yet).
It's good. It's good. It's good. It's good. It's good. It's good.
