"Monster iOS: A New Beginning" is a new kind of programming book released this week. This book aims to make learning to program fun by wrapping everything in a story. It is partly the story of Dave the Dev and how he ended up in a world full of fantasy monsters like vampires and zombies. The other part is about programming in general, and iOS development in particular.
The book is designed with the complete beginner in mind, explaining all concepts from the very basics, but covering the latest iOS version, the just released iOS 7, and its attendant development tools. It is released at the same time as Apple's iOS 7 so that those interested in developing for iPhones and iPads can learn the intricacies of programming for the latest iteration of iOS.
When asked why he wanted to write a programming guide which is part fiction, the author, Fahim Farook, said, "I didn't want to write just another programming book. I wanted to write something more fun and interesting, something that the reader might remember better. After all, if it's fun, it's easier to learn, too."
Ray Wenderlich of raywenderlich.com, one of the most popular sites online providing a huge array of programming tutorials and e-books, had this to say about the book: "The most unique book on iOS programming I’ve ever seen – cross a fantasy book with iOS programming, and you get Monster iOS! Great for complete beginners looking for a gentle and fun introduction into making apps – with a side dish of vampires!"
Simon Haynes, award-winning author of the best selling Hal Spacejock series of novels, and a software developer himself, said, "A novel approach to programming. What a great idea for an educational title. Too many people think programming is dry and boring, but this book will change all that."
