This is the perfect book for the experienced developer who wants to get serious about learning the Swift programming language. If you know at least one modern programming language, this book will teach you how to think and program in Swift. Swift's design is inspired by elements from object-oriented, functional, and generic programming.

As the language matures and improves, this book changes to reflect the latest best practices and coding style. This second edition to the best-selling Swift introduction has been updated to the latest Swift 4 release. It's never been easier to get started with Swift as this edition supports the new iOS Swift Playgrounds along with improved support for Xcode playgrounds. This means you can code along on a Mac or an iPad.

The book begins with an introduction to basic components of programming in Swift: functions, variables and constants, collections, and types from the Swift Standard Library. In the second part, create and use your own enumerations, structs, classes, and protocols.

Working your way through this book is a great way to learn the language of the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, and Apple TV.
