We launched the fifth version of our e-book Superior Swift just a few days in the past. You should purchase the e book on the objc.io website. The hardcover print version is printed and offered by Amazon (amazon.com, amazon.co.uk, amazon.de).
Highlights of the brand new version:
- Absolutely up to date for Swift 5.6
- A brand new Concurrency chapter protecting async/await, structured concurrency, and actors
- New content material on property wrappers, consequence builders, protocols, and generics
- The print version is now a hardcover (for a similar worth)
- Free replace for house owners of the e book
A rising e-book for a rising language
Updating the e-book all the time seems to be extra work than I count on. Swift has grown considerably since our final launch (for Swift 5.0), and the dimensions of the e-book displays this. The fifth version is 76 % longer than the primary version from 2016. This time, we barely stayed below 1 million characters:
Many due to our editor, Natalye, for studying all this and bettering our Dutch/German dialect of English.
For the primary time, the print version is available in hardcover (for a similar worth). With the ability to supply this makes me very comfortable. The hardcover e-book appears significantly better and is extra more likely to keep open when laid flat on a desk.
We additionally elevated the web page dimension from 15×23 cm (6×9 in) to 18×25 cm (7×10 in) to maintain the web page rely manageable (Amazon’s print on demand service limits hardcover books to 550 pages).
I hope you get pleasure from the brand new version. Should you determine to purchase the e-book or for those who purchased it prior to now, thanks very a lot! And for those who’re prepared to put in writing a evaluation on Amazon, we’d admire it.
