"Beginning iOS6 Development" author Jack Nutting confirms that “The iOS developer world is exploding with activity these days. It seems that every year there are twice as many conferences and books focused on iOS development, and more companies are starting new iOS development projects every day.” He understands the frustrations that beginning developers face especially when the tools available aren’t necessarily up to date. Which is why this book has just been released. He said, “We've all been through the difficulty of approaching unfamiliar software with tutorials and articles that describe an older version: the mental gymnastics of trying to map an old description to a new user experience can easily get in the way of learning. "Beginning iOS 6 Development" is designed to guide you along a path to proficiency, helping you learn the concepts and tools you need to realize your app dreams. “ "Beginning iOS6 Development" is packed full of tricks, techniques, and enthusiasm for the new SDK from a developer’s perspective.
