The Best Objective-C Book for Beginners

By  Oct 29, 2013

Topics: Programming, C/C++

Interested in learning iOS development? Programming in Objective-C starts from the very beginning, brings you through the basics of Objective-C, Object Oriented Programming, XCode, and iOS programming. 

The book makes no assumptions about prior experience with object-oriented programming languages or with the C language (which Objective-C is based upon). Because of this, both beginners and experienced programmers alike can use this book to quickly and effectively learn the fundamentals of Objective-C. Readers can also learn the concepts of object-oriented programming without having to first learn all of the intricacies of the underlying C programming language. Pre-order the sixth edition, releasing in December!
