Sebastopol, CA—Get a solid grounding in the fundamentals of Cocoa Touch, and avoid problems during iPhone and iPad app development. With this revised and expanded edition of Programming iOS 5 (O'Reilly Media, $49.99 USD), you'll dig into Cocoa and learn how to work effectively with Objective-C and Xcode. This book covers iOS 5 and Xcode 4.3 in a rigorous, orderly fashion—ideal whether you're approaching iOS for the first time or need a reference to bolster existing skills.

"I wrote the book I myself have longed to have," explains author Matt Neuburg. "It is aimed at the intelligent reader who may know something about programming—though no particular language knowledge is assumed—but has never programmed for iPhone before. This book trains the attentive student into a knowledgable, aware iPhone programmer, from the bottom up."

A brand-new update of his extremely popular Programming iOS 4 book, Programming iOS 5 has kept up with the lightening fast changes to Cocoa programming. "This is the single book to learn from, to refer to, to study, for every aspect of iPhone programming, from language basics to application architecture to all the built-in interface widgets," Neuburg assures.
