iOS 7 Programming Fundamentals

Objective-C, Xcode, and Cocoa Basics

Devendra's rating: StarStarStarStarStar 5.0

On Dec 9, 2013 Devendra Tewari wrote: Must read for beginners
As a new iOS developer, I found the book very useful to come to grips with Objective C, Foundation framework, Xcode, and UIKit. It does not cover programming topics such as multithreading, but more than makes up for that by covering newer topics such as blocks – frequently associated with asynchronous programming.

Learning Python

Learning Python

Powerful Object-Oriented Programming

Devendra's rating: StarStarStarStarStar 4.0

Learning Python, now in its fifth edition, is a humongous tome that covers Python 2 and 3. In covering both versions of Python, it does a tremendous service to the beginner. As a new Python programmer who’s well-versed with other programming languages, I found the book easy to get up to speed with, and its verbosity and thoroughness an asset rather than a liability.

If you are stuck with Python 2, you may still find the second edition of the book for sale, but the recipes may be dated as they cover Python 2.4. Full Review >
