Apple's new Swift programming language grows in popularity and usage because of the power and ease-of-use of the language itself. If you have a basic knowledge of Swift but want to further your expertise, Pro Swift is the book for you. Pro Swift provides an in-depth, comprehensive guide to the language, its runtime, and key API's.

This book explains the key concepts of the new Swift language in a clear, easy to understand manner, and also provides detailed coverage of its more complex features. In addition, the book includes numerous practical examples--code excerpts and complete applications--that demonstrate how to apply in code what you re learning.

The book begins with an exploration of Swift's basic features and key language elements. After reviewing the basics, it proceeds with an in-depth examination of the Swift dynamic programming features and runtime system. Next the book covers Swift and how it uses the Cocoa or Cocoa touch frameworks as well as how to leverage Cocoa's vast array of APIs.

Finally, new and advanced features of Swift are introduced. These show how they make the Swift language even more powerful and expressive. Each topic is covered thoroughly and is packed with the details you need to develop Swift code effectively. The most important features are given in-depth treatments, and each chapter contains numerous examples that demonstrate both the power and the subtlety of the new Swift.
