by Paris Buttfield-Addison 
Get valuable hands-on experience with Swift, the open-source programming language developed by Apple. with this practical guide, skilled programmers with little or no knowledge of Apple development will learn how to code with the latest version of Swift by developing a working iOS app from start to finish. You will begin with Swift programming basics including guidelines for making your code "Swifty" and learn how to work with Xcode and its built-in Interface Builder. Then you'll dive step-by-step into the building and customizing a basic app for taking, editing and deleting selfies. You?­ll also tunes and test the app for performance and manage the app?­s presence in the App Store.
Divided into four parts, this book includes: - Swift 4 basics: Learn Swift's basic building blocks and the features of object-oriented development - Building the Selfiegram app: Build model objects and the UI for your selfie app and add location support, user settings and notifications - Polishing Selfiegram: Create a theme and support for sharing and add custom views, image overlays and localization - Beyond app development: Debug and performance test with Xcode, automate chores with Fastlane and user-test the app with TestFlight

Swift greatly simplifies the process of developing applications for Apple devices. This book provides you with the essential skills to help you get started with developing applications using Swift. Key Features Teaches you how to correctly structure and architect software using Swift Uses real-world examples to connect the theory to a professional setting Imparts expertise in the core Swift standard library Book DescriptionTake your first foray into programming for Apple devices with Swift. Swift is fundamentally different from Objective-C, as it is a protocol-oriented language. While you can still write normal object-oriented code in Swift, it requires a new way of thinking to take advantage of its powerful features and a solid understanding of the basics to become productive. 

What you will learn :Explore the fundamental Swift programming concepts, language structure, and the Swift programming syntax Learn how Swift compares to other computer languages and how to transform your thinking to leverage new concepts such as options and protocols Master how to use key language elements, such as strings and collections Grasp how Swift supports modern application development using advanced features, such as built-in Unicode support and higher-order functions Who this book is forIf you are seeking fundamental Swift programming skills, in preparation for learning to develop native applications for iOS or macOS, this book is the best for you.
