iOS 11 Programming Fundamentals with Swift: Swift, Xcode, and Cocoa Basics Reviews
All of the 1 star reviews are people who are idiots, plain and simple. This is a goregous book, that teaches you Swift in a fast-paced and in-depth way. These 1 star people clearly are looking for YouTube tutorials, which, if you've enjoyed this book like I have, you know those quick fix resources are trash. All of these complaints are people who do not understand that you need to put the work into to create professional grade software. It takes years to do this stuff. There is no royal road.
I cannot emphasize how much I love this book. I aspire to be able to publish my first iOS application and to become an iOS developer. This is the book for me. I was hesitant at first to order the book due to the small sample of reviews and the simple fact I do not have a lot of money to spend. Which was at first why I turned to cheaper alternatives, i.e.- MOOC courses such as Udemy, free online readings, or Youtube. However, I felt as if I was obtaining a false sense of accomplishment. Sure it was nice to see quick results through following project samples, but in the end I was left with too many questions and felt I was not learning how I wanted to. Of course I was learning, but a good book provides so much more! I like to be able to imagine, and although it may in my personal opinion it is slower to learn using a book in the sense that it takes time to make the connections, apply what you learned, and see the results; a good book as this one is, is always worth reading! I already purchased the Programming iOS 11 by Matt Neburg, because I already know I am going to jump right into reading that book when I finish this one!
Great book on developing Swift
To learn Swift fundamentals this book is awesome! Matt fills in the gaps about the language, explains things in detail and gets it right!
This book is egregiously horrible. In fact the entire iOS series by Neuburg is atrocious and not worth your time. These books are too shallow and extremely uninformative.
Poorly organized and written and I’ve read a lot of books that I learned new languages from over my 50 years as a programmer. A waste of time and money for learning topics of title.
Don't buy this book if your goal is to learn to make iOS apps. You see nothing but isolated snippets that you don't know what to do with or have any context on for literally hundreds of pages.
