Unleash Your Inner App Developer!

This second book in the series from Kevin McNeish, winner of the 2012 Publishing Innovation Award, highly acclaimed iOS trainer and conference speaker, and award-winning App Developer, is specifically designed to teach non-programmers Objective-C; the language used to create Apps for the iPhone and iPad. Many books designed for the beginning Apple developer assume way too much. In contrast, this book series assumes you know nothing about programming.

Book 2: Flying with Objective-C builds on what you learned in Book 1: Diving In. In the first two chapters, the author helps you understand basic concepts, such as "what is a class?" and "what is an object?" You then learn how to pass messages to objects, and then create your own custom classes.

As you go through the book, concepts become more advanced until you reach the final chapters on Advanced-Objective-C and Advanced Messaging. Each concept is accompanied by step-by-step instructions to build an App that shows the real-world use of Objective-C programming features. This is a tremendous aid in helping non-programmers grasp even more advanced concepts.

The information in this book is applicable to the latest iOS technologies including iOS 7 and Xcode 5.

Includes Step-by-Step Instructional Videos!

Each exercise in this book has a corresponding movie that demonstrates how to perform the exercise. After trying to solve the exercise on your own, just tap the movie to watch the exercise solved for you in high quality video and narrative!

Not a "Dumbed Down" Series!

Ultimately, readers will learn everything that is taught in the regular written-for-programmer books. This series simply provides more background information and more thorough explanations for those who haven't had formal education or a career in software development.

    This is the book I've been looking for.  I don't usually stop to write reviews, but I have been trying to learn how to write Apps for what feels like forever.  I have tried other books and online classes and always felt like I was giving up before I got started.  Most books were just too much for me to follow.  Even the beginner books assumed I had knowledge I didn't and there were so many gaps that eventually I couldn't keep up.  This book explains everything and better yet, it summaries it at the end of the chapter.  In addition, they have videos to help you through the books challenges.  However, my favorite part, and this comes from the teacher in me, is the spiral review.  This book doesn't just teach you and move on.  It teaches you then builds on it reminding you of what your learned and so on and so forth.  So, if you are like me, a non-programmer with a real interest in learning how to create IOS apps.  This is the book for you.
