Jack Nutting has been using Cocoa since the olden days, long before it was even called Cocoa. He has used Cocoa and its predecessors to develop software for a wide range of industries and applications, including gaming, graphic design, online digital distribution, telecommunications, finance, publishing, and travel. This book is targeted for individuals want to learn Cocoa who have very little experience.

Джек Наттинг (Jack Nutting) использовал объектно-ориентированную среду разработки Cocoa еще в те времена, когда она не называлась Cocoa. Он использовал среду Cocoa и ее предшественниц для разработки широкого спектра коммерческих и промышленных приложений, включая игры, средства графического проектирования, электронную торговлю, телекоммуникации, а также финансовые, издательские и туристические компьютерные системы.

The Cocoa frameworks are some of the most powerful for creating native OS X apps available today. However, for a first-time Mac developer, just firing up Xcode 4 and starting to browse the documentation can be a daunting and frustrating task. The Objective-C class reference documentation alone would fill thousands of printed pages, not to mention all the other tutorials and guides included with Xcode. Where do you start? Which classes are you going to need to use? How do you use Xcode and the rest of the tools?

Learn Cocoa for the Mac, Second Edition, completely revised for OS X Mountain Lion and XCode 4, answers these questions and more, helping you find your way through the jungle of classes, tools, and new concepts so that you can get started on the next great OS X app today. Jack Nutting and Peter Clark are your guides through this forest; Jack and Peter have lived here for years, and will show you which boulder to push, which vine to chop, and which stream to float across in order to make it through. You will learn not only how to use the components of this rich framework, but also which of them fit together, and why.

Jack Nutting’s approach, combining pragmatic problem-solving with a deep respect for the underlying design philosophies contained within Cocoa, stems from years of experience using these frameworks. Peter Clark will show you which parts of your app require you to jump in and code a solution, and which parts are best served by letting Cocoa take you where it wants you to go. The path over what looks like a mountain of components and APIs has never been more thoroughly prepared for your travels. In each chapter, you’ll build an app that explores one or more areas of the Cocoa landscape. With Jack’s and Peter's guidance, the steep learning curve becomes a pleasurable adventure. There is still much work for the uninitiated, but by the time you’re done, you will be well on your way to becoming a Cocoa master.

  • I am not liking this book. The book crams way too many concepts into each chapter. If your code doesn't work, you won't even know where to look because you learned too many things simultaneously and have no idea what you may've done right and where you may've gone wrong.

    I understand that maybe the author is trying to put context in the code you're being taught, to make the lesson more interesting and fun, but one of the earlier chapters, it backfired because you had to utilize code that may be too difficult if you're a beginner and amateur.

  • This is fantastic introduction to programming Cocoa on the Mac OS X.

    With any technical book, the most important issues are the target audience, the order material is presented and quality of the material. This book is targeted for individuals want to learn Cocoa who have very little experience. As such, the book has many pictures, screen shots and explanations in the text to create the examples in a step by step fashion. It gives a broad outline of the capabilities of the Cocoa framework and how to utilize it. The initial chapters are basic introductions that quickly move through bindings, Core Data, drawing, file functions, and even multitasking. The chapters are dense with ideas. But the concepts are explained completely.

    I have experience programming as hobby. I know Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications, some perl, some AppleScript and some C. I wanted to learn to write some programs for my Mac. I read an Object C book by Kochan (Programming in Objective-C (6th Edition) (Developer's Library) Paperback – December 13, 2013
    by Stephen G. Kochan (Author) which is fantastic by the way!) , another introduction to Cocoa programming book and few other filler books. But this one was the best to pull all the ideas together. It has the best explanation of using Cocoa bindings for tables i have come across. It does a great job with introduction to Core Data and file storage. I do not recall running across any errors in the book examples. I did type all the code examples myself.

    I really liked the use of multiple small program examples to illustrate concepts. Some books use the entire book to build an application. However, in this book most chapters contain the entire program. Each chapter begins a new program and example. This is really great because you explore different areas each time and when I want to go back to review I just pull up the completed program to review the chapters ideas. So after finishing this book, I have a director full of all the chapter examples. If I want to review binding I go to the program for the chapter and review the code.

    Finally, I had a question about one of the programs regarding use of an NSDictionary and an array controller. The authors provided their email and have website set up to support the book. So I thought I might email them directly. I could not believe it but I received a reply within hours and it was a Sunday!

    Thank you for a wonderful book. I learned an immense amount.

  • If you're looking to build applications for the Mac app store, this book will serve you well. Personally, I had a lot of trouble picking up XCode and the Cocoa APIs from Apple's documentation -- there were too many moments I was scratching my head because something wasn't spelled out. This book pulled everything together for me. The best part is that this book was recently updated, so (unlike another book I read) there weren't the "huh, this doesn't match up to the documentation/UI/etc." moments.

    If you're an expert with Cocoa, this book isn't for you. If you're a new Mac programmer, or getting back into it again after many years (as I was), I think you'll find this as useful as I did.

  • I was looking for something more comprehensive, with information on cocoa, not the basics of how to build a cocoa app. More depth, less tutorial for absolute beginners. but not in this book. I suppose for a newbie this would be a good place to start, but for an experienced cocoa developer it's just too basic.
