I have always been a fan of the For Dummies series but this book has changed that. The book is a total mess.

Only 12 left in stock (more on the way). I have always been a fan of the For Dummies series but this book has changed that. It's unclear and unorganized, and it clearly does't seem to target a specific audience. This book assumes that you have some programming knowledge and knowledge with Cocoa Touch frameworks, which is a strange thing in a For Dummies series.

Jesse Feiler is a developer, trainer, and author. A veteran developer on all iOS and OS X products, he is also the author of iOS App Development For Dummies. Jesse is heard regularly on The Roundtable, a program of WAMC Public Radio for the Northeast.

By (author) Jesse Feiler. Inside the book, you'll find out how to set up Xcode for a new Swift application, use operators, objects, and data types, and control program flow with conditional statements. You'll also get the scoop on creating new functions, statements, and declarations, learn useful patterns in an object-oriented environment, and take advantage of frameworks to speed your coding along.

Get up and running with Swift—swiftly

Brimming with expert advice and easy-to-follow instructions,Swift For Dummies shows new and existing programmers how toquickly port existing Objective-C applications into Swift and getinto the swing of the new language like a pro. Designed from theground up to be a simpler programming language, it's never beeneasier to get started creating apps for the iPhone or iPad, orapplications for Mac OS X.

Inside the book, you'll find out how to set up Xcode for a newSwift application, use operators, objects, and data types, andcontrol program flow with conditional statements. You'll also getthe scoop on creating new functions, statements, and declarations,learn useful patterns in an object-oriented environment, and takeadvantage of frameworks to speed your coding along. Plus, you'llfind out how Swift does away with pointer variables and how toreference and dereference variables instead.

Set up a playground development environment for Mac, iPhone,iPad, and wearable computersMove an existing Objective-C program to SwiftTake advantage of framework components and subcomponentsCreate an app that uses location, mapping, and socialmedia

Whether you're an existing Objective-C programmer looking toport your code to Swift or you've never programmed for Apple in thepast, this fun and friendly guide gets you up to speed swiftly.

I have always been a fan of the For Dummies series but this book has changed that.
The book is a total mess. It's unclear and unorganized, and it clearly does't seem to target a specific audience.
If you're a beginner programmer, do not buy this book. This book assumes that you have some programming knowledge and knowledge with Cocoa Touch frameworks, which is a strange thing in a For Dummies series.
When I started reading this book, I thought that I was reading it backwards. Chapter 4 goes into complex and advance programming with references of the unexplained topics on later chapters. The rest of the book made me feel the same.
The book's chapters are structured as follows:
Chapter 1: Starts with building an app, Locatapp, that uses Cocoa Touch's MapKit
Chapters 2-3: Talks about Xcode environment in way too much details (5 pages on Xcode's code completion feature)
Chapter 4: Jumps into deep coding of the same app introduced in chapter 1 with no explanation at all. The chapter mentions classes, kits, framework, etc.. without explaining them at all. I hardly followed his instructions, which are stated with no explanation whatsoever.
Chapters 5-8: Talk about Swift's syntax and the language itself. It does so in a confusing manner by writing the code in a playground and following the steps provided. Those chapters seem separated from the book, as they do not even mention the app that "should" be built while reading the book.
Chapters 9-18: Continues building the app that was started on chapter 4 and introduces other aspects of Swift in the same time.

Overall, the book jumped from topic to topic, the writer explains straightforward topics in too much details and leaves the complex topics unexplained, the way instructions are given makes building the app a nightmare, and the pictures seemed misplaced in the paperback version.
I do not recommend this book. Both the writer and the editor have to fix those huge mistakes.

I should have read the reviews before buying but I have had such good luck with "dummies" books that I just bought it. AS OTHERS HAVE STATED, THIS BOOK IS A TOTAL MESS. I have been programming for 40 years and consider myself capable of learning almost anything technical. I am not big on object oriented programming but can get by. I read the book on two cross country flights and think i understand even less about Swift than before i started. I just got hoMe and noticed I no longer have the book. I left it on the plane. Great how the subconscious mind works. Now I don;t have to worry about trying to figure out this author's brain dump. There is no logical development to the ideas presented. It is as if the book was generated from an advanced class lecture in which there was some sense of confirmation that the audience understood what he was talking about. He goes into painful detail about programming details that are not necessary and only distract someone trying to figure out WTF he is talking about.
I AM SO GLAD I LEFT THE BOOK ON THE PLANE

It may very well be a good book. However, Apple has updated Xcode and/or Swift so much that this book is obsolete for version Xcode 7 and/or Swift 2. I had to stop reading at page 36 because the examples no way matched what I had on my screen using Xcode 7. It seems pointless to install Xcode 6.X just to get through this book only to have to learn how to do the same stuff in 7. 2 stars since up to page 36 I found it very informative and easy to follow but it doesn't appear there are any updates to the book at the dummies website to account for these discrepancies. There are supposed to be downloads for all examples used in the book, but there isn't anything at the url listed for this book at all. The author also states the source code can be downloaded from his website too, but there is nothing there either. My advice, get a book that EXPLICITLY states what version of Xcode / Swift it was written for.

Worthless book if you're programming in Swift. This book is outdated. The screenshots don't match what is currently available in the system and the coding doesn't work as explained because of changes to Swift since this release. Save your money. Go with something that is current and better written.

Small letters. Not for beginners.

I'm a software engineer by trade and a Windows DevOps guy by accident. I picked this up in order to begin learning Mac programming on my personal MacBook Pro. I've always had the highest respect for Dummies books and after opening it tonight everything seemed just as I'd expect: straight forward, to the point, and easy to pick up--that is until I reached the first project. I did everything as directed and ended up a very different file/folder structure than the book indicated. After some frustration I went to[...]t, per page 4 of the book, to download the source thinking I was just missing something in my old age but there was very little there, certainly no chapters or source code (if it is I can't find it). After reading the reviews here it may simply be the book I bought barely a month ago and the XCode compiler I installed last week aren't compatible. Seriously? I can read a book on .NET 2.0 and the basics still apply today but the Swift IDE changed so much over the past month I can't even do the first exercise much less attempt to run the ?online? version of the project? If true, the publisher should have immediately updated the book and removed these grossly outdated copies from Amazon. Dummies, for the first time I'd like my money back. :(

Very helpful for my studies
Very detailed and explanatory. Cutting edge material inside this great book. Very pleased with the ease of the information and the details that are in it as well. Great for both beginners and experienced programmers (like myself). One of the best Swift books out there right now!
