Overview

Xcode 4 has a brand new user interface, built upon proven technologies that Apple itself uses to build Mac OS X and iOS, and that have produced over a quarter million Mac OS X and iOS apps.

This project-based book introduces readers to Apple's development environment. The book is aimed at new Mac OS X and iOS developers and assumes the reader is familiar with programming and object-oriented concepts. The book starts at the basics--how to download, install, and start using Xcode--and moves to a detailed look at building and running applications. The last part of the book covers more advanced topics, such as testing, debugging, and source-code management. With the book's approach, readers will be able to take the projects they build during the book and adapt them for use in their own projects.

    This book is excellent for what it claims to do!

    Read the review posted previously and honestly couldn't believe he gave such a poor rating based on the fact the book wasn't for beginner programmers... below is a quote from the book description given directly above the last reviewer's review.


    "and assumes the reader is familiar with programming and object-oriented concepts"

    For what the book says it is supposed to help with, it does just that beautifully! It is easy to read, easy to follow and (*assuming you are familiar with programming and object-oriented concepts* as the description points out) is an excellent help aide for mastering Xcode4.

    Well done Mr. Nozzi

    Excellent book about XCODE 4

    I bought this book knowing full well that it would not teach me how to program. This book is titled 'Mastering Xcode 4' and it is certainly a wonderful reference for Xcode 4. It is well written and well laid out. One of its biggest strengths is that it remains focused on Xcode. Digressions are to the point and end quickly with referrals for further reading. I frequently find myself thinking of an Xcode related question and then remembering that an answer is in this book. There isn't much more to say about it. If you are comfortable with cocoa/cocoa touch development and want to be more comfortable with Xcode 4, this is 'the' book.

    Xcode 4

    I think this book very lightly touches basic programmer needs. This is not for learning from scratch.
