Bert Altenburg, author of "AppleScript for Absolute Starters", in co-operation with Alex Clarke and Philippe Mougin, has released a new book for newcomers to Cocoa programming using Objective-C and XCode.
This tutorial is for non-programmers, and is aimed at levelling the learning curve as much as possible.
In the best tradition, the tutorial is being released as a free booklet in pdf format.
The Buy Now link will take you to a page where you can choose from various versions of this document for download. Both the Tiger (OS X 10.4) and Leopard (OS X 10.5) editions are available in English; Chinese, Japanese, and Arabic translations are available in the Tiger version only.
This is an excellent starter in Cocoa and ObjC. It got me past my initial hesitation to learn ObjC and I still have it in my library.
Although I always wanted to try coding, I never had succes with the other beginner books. This is a great free pdf-book discussing the great Xcode software that you get for free from Apple.
If you have some spare time (you will need enough time) this can be your entrance to coding.
I'm very thankfull for this very well written book!
I would like to say "thank you guys -Bert Altenburg, Alex Clarke and Philippe Mougin-" for this intorductory book. I loved it, and even got the air to translate it into my native language.
The Leopard version is top notch; short enough to work through in a few days, yet complete enough to offer a smooth and clean introduction to working with Objective-C. Some of the descriptions for the Xcode Interface are a little vague and difficult to work through, however, and could use a few more screen shots.
