Apple delivered iOS 8 to the developer world at WWDC in June 2014, before launching it at the wider world in September of the same year. The iOS 8 SDK was somewhat over-shadowed by the simultaneous announcement of a new programming language in the form of Swift, however this didn’t mean that the core OS had been overlooked at all. Quite the opposite - a huge number of new APIs had been introduced, powering tons of new functionality.
iOS8: Day-by-Day is a review of the most important of these. Busy developers don’t have time to trawl the WWDC videos and Apple documentation. Instead they’d like to get a high-level summary of the new possibilities, alongside some working sample code. This is exactly what iOS8: Day-by-Day provides. It started out as a blog series, and these blog posts now form the basis of the book.
This repo contains all the source code associated with each of the articles, allowing you to see each of the new technologies in action.
iOS8 Day-by-Day is now a published eBook. You can get hold of your copy from Leanpub at leanpub.com/ios8daybyday.
iOS8 Day-by-Day is a blog series which dives into all the new features available for developers in iOS8. You can read more about it and find an index of the currently published posts here at shinobicontrols.com/iOS8DayByDay.
This repo is a collection of projects which accompany the series. Every single blog post has a project which demonstrates the functionality in-action, rather than just being a purely theoretical overview of the technology.
If you have any suggestions / ideas / comments please feel free to catch me on twitter at @iwantmyrealname, and do fork the repo and have a play around with the code!
