Overview of this book

Swift was considered one of the biggest innovations last year, and certainly with Swift 2 announced at WWDC in 2015, this segment of the developer space will continue to be hot and dominating. This is a fast-paced guide to provide an overview of Swift programming and then walks you through in detail how to write iOS applications. Progress through chapters on custom views, networking, parsing and build a complete application as a Git repository, all by using Swift as the core language

Appendix A. References to Swift-related Websites, Blogs, and Notable Twitter Users

Learning any language initially focuses on the syntax and semantics of the language, but it quickly moves on to learning the suite of both standard and additional libraries that allow programmers to be productive. A single book cannot hope to list all possible libraries that will be needed; this book is intended to be the start of a learning journey.

For further reading, this appendix presents a number of additional resources that may be useful to the reader in order to continue this journey. In addition, look out for other books by Packt Publishing that present different aspects of Swift. This list of resources is necessarily incomplete; new resources will become available after the publication of this book, but you may be able to find new developments as they occur by following the feeds and posts of the resources given here.
