    1. Whenever a new programming language is introduced my reaction tends to be, "here we go again" However, in this case, I was somewhat excited. Since Mac OS and iOS programming is in Objective C and Objective C, while more palatable than C++, is still carrying around C's baggage, this looked like an opportunity.The book itself is well-written and very easy to follow.The language itself looks quite expressive though two oversights seems to be access modifiers on class components (like "private") and [...]


    2. This book was about, well, the Swift Programming Language. It explained how to use Swift, from printing "hello world", to building full applications for iOS, MacOS, WatchOS, and tvOS. It explains conditionals, functions, error catching, property and class inheritance and mutations, and much much more. My favorite part of the book was generic class functions, because it is a very smart implementation of Swift that allows for writing clean, effective code. I would recommend this book to people who [...]


    3. I enjoyed getting to know Swift. I most recently came from Ruby (RoR) and I loved how flexible Ruby is. Swift feels less flexible, and I can't imagine Swift is useful for anything other than iOS/OSX programming. You'd get more out of this book if you already know how to program in other languages or worked with web frameworks. For example, the automatic reference counting chapter at first read like a memory management chapter, and it can be a little confusing, but you do find similar foreign key [...]


    4. A good introduction into the language Swift. Nice examples, good explanations. But you should know at least one other modern programming language before reading this book, like e. g. C++ 11, Groovy, Ruby, Java 8, Scala, etc.I miss a chapter on using the language in projects, though.The four stars are for the book, not the language Swift. Swift code is much better to read than Objective C for sure, so it is a large improvement for iOS programming. But a general programming language needs concurre [...]


    5. a good intro to the language syntax and techniques. final release is finally out today, and forever reference .


    6. Its a good reference guide for the swift programming language. Good to be aware of the features available in the language.



    7. The book drilled too deeply into topics that wouldn't be directly useful to getting an app up & running. I also found its examples somewhat dry and impractical, and would have preferred more teaching-in-context, via Xcode projects. The book also lacked practical explanations into key concepts where specific examples would have served well:+ debugging: how to use built-in standard library functions like print() effectively+ design patterns: specifically MVC, singleton, composition, decorator, [...]


    8. Let's skip the language itself for a moment and focus on the writing of the book.The interesting bit is the first 20-or-so pages. It starts with a very simple, very succinct explanation of the language, so if you any programming language, you can just start writing Swift code picking the pointers in those pages.Then, the real content starts: It goes very deep, explaining every point in great detail, with expanding examples that start very simple at the start of the chapter and then go increasing [...]





    9. Writing for Swift 2.0 Pre-release version.Swift itself is an elegant, thoughtful and "safe" language.As an introduction book writing in 2015, the book works best for both people new to programming or ones want to taste what it's like to be the most loved language on StackOverflow.If you're in latter kind then the Guided Tour at the very beginning will let you "play" with the language in the attached Playground, a REPL environment also support Markdown document.If you've just begun your programmi [...]


    10. As programming language references go, this one is fine. It does what it sets out to do-covers the language.That being said, I've always been a little disappointed in how Apple doesn't do a better job of guiding people through the design patterns required of their OS, or of familiarizing people with their frameworks and general app design. Their intro-level web resources are too specific-build an app with them without thinking too hard about your design decisions, etc.Again, this book's goal is [...]


    11. The language itself is pretty terrific. Objective-C capabilities but feels more like python. Finally getting rid of a lot of the C cruft, but still feels familiar.The book, however, seemed to have a hard time pinning down the audience. There were times it felt like an intro to programming book and other times it assumed you already knew about Objective-C/Cocoa. I don't know how well a beginner to programming would do with the book, but as someone who knows several programming languages, includin [...]


    12. I've read this book to get an idea about the new Swift language and I must say that I'm very satisfied of the quality of the publication and the code examples. The language seems very modern, it resembles a lot of constructs seen in scritp languages like Perl, but with the performance of a compiled language. I think that after this reading I'll subscribe to the iPhone Developer Program to start practicing with Swift with the new XCode and maybe one day I'll publish my first app on the App Store


    13. Wellis is not exactly a book's a manuald it's pretty good.ough I found confusing that the first section is a nice introduction and the second part is a deep dive into the introductionI was expecting something elset only the main keywords or how to do "x" or "y"I was expecting how to use graphics or things like thatwellI guess's not a book after allIf you want to be introduced to Swiftis is really goodotherwisego look for a real book


    14. Apart from a few typos (which stand out all the more in a well-edited work) and a couple of topics which could still use a bit more explanation, it's quite a good introduction to the syntax and use of Swift. There's no peek under the hood, nor does one come away with a feeling of thorough understanding (as with, say K&R), but in the context of the Apple documentation library it serves its purpose well in a very approachable tone.


    15. One of the best edited programming language books. A very succinct tutorial at the beginning that allows you to get the grip of the language and then the rest of the book serves as a reference to go in depth into the language.The reference part of the book, could have been more comprehensive. It felt too much like just reiteration of the tutorial without saying a whole lot more.


    16. Excellent style, I wish all documentation was written like this. That said, it looks like the "Patterns" section feels like it's written by some other person. Also, there are couple of errors, but, it's irrelevant, as it is understandable that language evolves fast and in no way the book could be kept along.


    17. The book has many bugs.Also it is not possible to report bugs to Apple unless one has a paid subscription of developer account.At many a few places the theory mentions a concept which is in contradiction with the sample code which follows.Too sad that Apple, a company known for delivering near-flawless products has come up with such a quality drained book.


    18. The new language, while not revolutionary, does seem like a nice combination of existing programming concepts in a format that will be easy for Objective C programmers to pick up. The incorporation of some concepts that you usually only see in dynamic languages, such as closures, is particularly nice.


    19. I think this new language is a step forward from Objective-C, but I feel that some things were unnecessary and just added a bit more "weirdness" (technical term) to the language.I can't wait until I can start using this and see it in practice.


    20. Day 3. So far very impressed. Best of JS, Python, C# and even VB. ObjC is dead to me. Live environment is a productivity boon. The community and dev camaraderie resembles VB development in its early days.
