Modern Concurrency in Swift. 2 Ed. - Marin Todorov

2023
english

 For years, writing powerful and safe concurrent apps with Swift could easily turn into a daunting task, full of race conditions and unexplained crashes hidden in a massive nesting of callback closures.

 In Swift 5.5, Apple introduced a new concurrency model featuring the async/await syntax, which lets you write asynchronous code that reads like synchronous code. But like any new feature, here be dragons! So how will you achieve the much-desired mastery of modern Swift concurrency?

 Modern Concurrency in Swift comes to the rescue, showcasing what you need to know about async/await, tasks, actors and everything in between!

Who This Book Is For

 This book is for intermediate Swift developers who are familiar with writing asynchronous applications and who want to leverage the concurrency features Apple introduced in Swift 5.5 and its evolution throughout the years, to write safer and more predictable asynchronous apps.

 Topics Covered in Modern Concurrency in Swift

  • Using async/await: Learn how to use the new async/await keywords to define and run asynchronous work.
  • Actors: Find out how to use the actor model to easily protect shared mutable state in a synchronized container.
  • Tasks: You'll dive deeper into the Task type, which powers all asynchronous tasks in Swift's modern concurrency model.
  • Task Groups: Use a Task Group to group multiple tasks together and run them concurrently, while using a familiar Array-like syntax to iterate over the results.
  • Custom Asynchronous Sequences: Leverage the power of async/await in your own asynchronous work, by learning how to create custom AsyncStreams.
  • Testing Asynchronous Code: Asynchronous code can be a challenging beast to test. You'll learn everything you need to tackle this challenge.

 One thing you can count on: After reading this book, you’ll be prepared to leverage Swift's new concurrency features in your app to write safe, performant and predictable asynchronous code.

iOS Architecture Patterns: MVP, MVVM, VIPER, and VIP in Swift - Raúl Ferrer García

2023
english

 Develop well-structured applications using tested techniques and patterns. When you start to develop an application, you not only have to think about the idea of the finished application, but also about how it will evolve as it is built. This book shows you how to plan for changes, scope creep, and for the possibility of other developers joining in. 

 Start by learning what architecture patterns for an application are. You’ll find out why it’s important for your applications to be based on these patterns and which ones are the most common. Then you’ll look at the MVC as one of the best known and used patterns. You’ll see how and when it can be implemented in your applications, as well as its advantages and disadvantages. 

 From there, you’ll discover the first evolution of the MVC model: the MVP, which introduces a new layer (Presenter) to better manage views. The next evolution after that is the MVVM, which introduces the ViewModel layer and its connection with the views through Data Binding. With those prominent patterns covered, you’ll read about VIPER and VIP, Architecture Patterns that seeks to make applications easily maintainable, modularized, and highly scalable. All of which are hallmarks of Clean Architecture.  

 Architecture patterns have developed and evolved to give your applications solid foundations. Understanding these patterns, you will reduce the problems that may arise when modifying existing functions, adding new ones, or correcting errors that may arise in the development process.


What You'll Learn

  • Code cleanly with solid foundations
  • Start your project ready to adapt and evolve as features and other developers are added 
  • Find and apply the right patterns for the best results  

 Who This Book Is ForDevelopers with some programming knowledge who want to learn different architecture patterns, those who already have more experience and are looking for a starting point on complex patterns such as VIPER or VIP, and beginner programmers.

Combine: Asynchronous Programming with Swift. 3 ed - Shai Mishali, Florent Pillet, Marin Todorov & Scott Gardner

2021
english

Writing asynchronous code can be challenging, with a variety of possible interfaces to represent, perform, and consume asynchronous work — delegates, notification center, KVO, closures, etc. Juggling all of these different mechanisms can be somewhat overwhelming. Does it have to be this hard? Not anymore!

In this book, you'll learn about Combine — Apple’s framework to work with asynchronous events in a unified and reactive way that ensures your app is always up to date based on the latest state of its data.

Who This Book Is For

This book is for intermediate iOS developers who already know the basics of iOS and Swift development but are interested in learning declarative/reactive programming and take their app and state management to the next level.

You'll also find this book interesting if you're interested in SwiftUI — as many of the reactive capabilities keeping your SwiftUI views up-to-date are built on top of Combine.

Topics Covered in Combine: Asynchronous Programming with Swift

  • What & Why: Learn what is Combine and reactive programming and the problems they solve, and how you can unify all of your asynchronous piece of work.
  • Operators: Learn how to compose, transform, filter and otherwise manipulate different pieces of asynchronous work using operators.
  • In Practice: You'll gain knowledge on various topics and techniques you'll leverage when writing your own real-life apps, as well as practice these techniques with actual hands-on apps and projects.
  • SwiftUI: You'll learn about how Combine is deeply rooted within SwiftUI and provides it with the ability to reactively update its views based on the state of your app.
  • Advanced Combine: Once you've got a handle on the basics, you'll dive into advanced Combine topics such as Error Handling, Schedulers, and Custom Publishers.

By the end of this book, you'll be a pro in building full-fledged applications using Combine's various abilities.

Swift 4 for Absolute Beginners. 4 Ed - Brad Lees, Gary Bennett, Stefan Kaczmarek

2018
english

 This book assumes you may have never programmed before. The book is also written for someone who may have never programmed before using object-oriented programming (OOP) languages. There are many Swift books out there, but all of these books assume you have programmed before and know OOP and computer logic. We wanted to write a book that takes readers from knowing little or nothing about computer programming and logic to being able to program in Swift. After all, Swift is a native programming language for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

 Over the last eight years, we have taught thousands of students at xcelMe.com to be iOS (iPhone/iPad) developers. Many of our students have developed some of the most successful iOS apps in their category in the App Store. We have incorporated what we have learned in our first two courses, Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming and Logic and Swift for iPhone/iPad Developers, into this book.
