Considering in SwiftUI – Ole Begemann


Chris and Florian’s new guide Considering in SwiftUI got here out in March 2020 already, so I’m late to the occasion with this announcement. However I nonetheless wish to point out it right here as a result of (a) it’s guide 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 guide is brief (150 pages), and that’s one in every of its strengths. It doesn’t wish to be a complete reference handbook for each SwiftUI API — quite, it desires to assist readers construct a psychological mannequin of how SwiftUI works on a elementary degree.

The primary version acquired lots of reward on Twitter (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). The second version contains new content material on a few of the new SwiftUI options which can be a part of iOS 14/macOS 11, in addition to refined explanations on SwiftUI’s structure system. Should you’re a Swift Speak subscriber, you already know that Florian and Chris did a deep dive into the structure system this 12 months.

I’m an enormous fan of the workouts included within the guide. Every chapter ends with a number of workouts that encourage you to resolve a practical drawback utilizing the belongings you simply realized. Personally, doing the workouts undoubtedly gave me a deeper understanding of the fabric than simply studying about it.

On a facet word, I really like this work as a reviewer, and I believe I’m good at it. I you’re planning to write down a guide about Swift or iOS and are searching for a technical reviewer, hit me up.
