Introducing Swift Talk

Follow us building Swift projects in our weekly Swift Talk videos.

Dear all,

Three years ago we announced the first issue of the objc.io magazine. Today, we’re introducing something new: Swift Talk.

Swift Talk has weekly videos, showing our solutions to problems we encounter while building real Swift projects. Each episode contains lots of live coding, and discussions about the pros and cons of our decisions.

Swift Talk episodes are not tutorial videos about how to do things the right way. After all, there’s more than just one good solution to almost every problem. Rather, we want to explore how Swift can be leveraged to solve problems in new ways. We hope this will encourage discussion, so please send any feedback our way!

Half of the Swift Talk episodes will be freely available, just like our monthly magazine issues. The other half is subscriber-only. We’d love to make lots of episodes in the future, so please support us by subscribing. We also offer team subscriptions, just add team members on your account page. Thank you!

Best from Berlin,

Florian & Chris

Happy WWDC 2016!

All our eBooks are 30% off during WWDC.

Dear all,

We wish you an enjoyable and exciting WWDC week.

To make it even better, all of our eBooks are 30% off for the entire week. Of course we’ll update them for Swift 3 later this summer, and you’ll get these updates for free.

Functional Swift in Japanese

Our book Functional Swift has been translated to Japanese

Dear all,

We are happy to announce that our book Functional Swift has been translated into Japanese as well.

『Functional Swift』は発表から1年超経っているため、すでに本書をご存じのSwift開発者の方も多いと思います。このたび本書がSwift 2.0に対応したタイミングで日本語版を発行することになり、翻訳を務めました。本書はApple公式『The Swift Programming Language』に続く読み物として最高の一冊だと思います(同じくobjc.ioの『Advanced Swift』とその座を争うことでしょう)。

本書の紹介ページの目次に「1章 はじめに」の全テキスト、そして各章の最初の一段落を掲載していますので、ぜひご参照ください。これまで他の言語でも関数型プログラミングの経験が少ない方にとっては特に、章を終えるごとに新たな何かを得られることになると思います。

本書がより良いコードにつながり、皆様のSwiftライフがさらに有意義になれば幸いです。

Functional Swift in Chinese

Our book Functional Swift has been translated to Chinese

Dear all,

We are happy to announce that our book Functional Swift has been translated into Chinese. The same team is now also translating Core Data and Advanced Swift.

很高兴能与 objc.io 合作为广大的中国开发者带来《函数式 Swift》一书。这本书是由三名函数式编程大师 Chris Eidhof,Florian Kugler 和 Wouter Swierstra 根据 Swift 语言特点,并结合他们相关领域多年的工作经验所书写的,是一本引领你进入 Swift 函数式编程世界的优秀读物。

让更多的中国开发者有机会接触并了解 Swift 语言函数式的一面,正是我们翻译本书的目的所在。我们衷心希望本书中的技巧和知识能够帮助您构建出更好的软件,并让这个世界更加美丽。

Advanced Swift, Book Bundles, and Team Licenses

Our Advanced Swift book is out! Also, we now have bundle options and team licenses for all of our books.

Dear all,

Finally – the Advanced Swift book is ready! After months in early-access we’ve caught up with all the Swift 2.2 awesomeness.

The book covers many advanced topics, ranging from low-level (e.g. wrapping a C library and string internals) to high-level (e.g. programming with generics and protocols). You can take a sneak peek into some parts of the book in our online preview.

The eBook comes in three different formats (PDF, ePub, and Kindle mobi). Head over to Amazon for the paperback version.

Book Bundles

We now also offer our eBooks as bundles. For example, buy Functional Swift and Advanced Swift together and save 10%. You can see the available bundle options on each book page: Functional Swift, Advanced Swift, and Core Data.

Team Licenses

If you want to make one of our eBooks available to your whole team, we now have a dedicated option for that. Just choose the “Team eBook” version of any book and select your team size (up to 50 people) at checkout. For larger teams, please get in touch!

Best from Berlin,
