Chinese Translations and Advanced Swift update

Dear all,

The fine folks at have redesigned their website, and now have translations of all our books: Functional Swift, Advanced Swift and Core Data available.

We have started working on the Swift 3 update for Advanced Swift. We also needed a changing of the guard: as Airspeed Velocity will start working on the Swift standard library, Ole Begemann is now on board as a co-author. The Swift 3 update will have some major changes and will be a free update for everyone who has bought a digital version. We’re hoping to be done this fall. Also, we are working with Loïc Lecrenier to generate playgrounds that will accompany many of the chapters (for some chapters, it doesn’t make sense to have playgrounds).

Best from Berlin,
Florian & Chris

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 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

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。

很高兴能与 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。
