By | Copyright Year:2012 | ISBN-13: 9780170228992

Programming Apps for the iPhone® provides a comprehensive course of instruction in Xcode and Objective-C. The book does not assume any prior knowledge in programming and guides the user from the very simplest applications through to those with considerable complexity. Students will find the book fun, interesting and challenging. Teachers will find it well structured, broad in its application and thorough in its topic coverage.

Programming Apps for the iPhone is an excellent textbook for programming courses and an invaluable teacher reference manual. It has been developed specifically for the Australian Years 10-12 classroom and is ideally suited to all Information Technology courses.

In addition the text has support material on the NelsonNet website:
• Images required for the programming examples and tasks.
• Fully developed programming examples from the book
• Solutions to all programming tasks.
*Complimentary access to NelsonNet is available to teachers who use the accompanying student book as a core resource in their classroom. Contact your education consultant for access codes and conditions.
