I'm enjoying reading the Author's knowledge & explanations, but I hope I don't have to wait until the Spring of 2016 to receive all the chapters smilie. I do understand a high quality book takes time to achieve. So, drink more coffee and type faster smilie, I'm anxious to learn more & quickly. This is a fun book to read & learn, too.

Other author's books seem to leave me hanging with questions & there is a gap between the beginner chapters & the more advanced topics. -Pete

Thanks.

No longer is it : "Reading, writing and arithmetic" but now it's : "Reading, writing, arithmetic and fun programming".

Regards,
Laurence.

Hi Wendy,

I'm looking forward to your book, which I purchased for my wife. I taught her how to program back in the 1990's to support her doctoral research (using a programming book I published back then), but she moved on to computer graphics when research opportunities dried up.

By the way, you state in chapter 1 that Objective-C was created by Apple for programming the iPhone and iPad. That's not quite accurate. Objective-C was developed by Brad Cox and Tom Love back in the 80's (I still have a copy of Brad Cox's textbook on Objective-C) and was the language used by NeXT to write NeXTstep, the forerunner of both OS X's Cocoa and iOS's Cocoa Touch. NeXT purchased the rights to Objective-C from Brad Cox, and Apple "inherited" Objective-C when they purchased NeXT.

Hi,

I purchased this book just now. In the first chapter you mention MAC with Yosemite or later version as a requirement . I have 10.8.5 on my Mac and i do not wish to upgrade immediately. Can you please tell me whether this is an absolute show stopper for making use of the stuff in this book.

thanks
