Chris and Florian’s new e-book Considering in SwiftUI got here out in March 2020 already, so I’m late to the get together with this announcement. However I nonetheless wish to point out it right here as a result of (a) it’s an excellent e-book and (b) I had a small half in its creation as a reviewer. This week’s launch of an up to date model for the newest SwiftUI model is an efficient alternative.
The e-book is brief (150 pages), and that’s one in all its strengths. It doesn’t wish to be a complete reference guide for each SwiftUI API — somewhat, it needs to assist readers construct a psychological mannequin of how SwiftUI works on a basic degree.
The primary version acquired numerous reward on Twitter (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). The second version consists of new content material on among the new SwiftUI options which are a part of iOS 14/macOS 11, in addition to refined explanations on SwiftUI’s structure system. If you happen to’re a Swift Speak subscriber, you already know that Florian and Chris did a deep dive into the structure system this yr.
I’m a giant fan of the workouts included within the e-book. Every chapter ends with a number of workouts that encourage you to unravel a practical downside utilizing the belongings you simply discovered. Personally, doing the workouts undoubtedly gave me a deeper understanding of the fabric than simply studying about it.
On a facet word, I like this work as a reviewer, and I feel I’m good at it. I you’re planning to jot down a e-book about Swift or iOS and are on the lookout for a technical reviewer, hit me up.
