If you follow my blog then you’ll notice that I’ve been quiet over the past couple of months. Well, I have been quiet on here, but I have been writing. In fact, I’ve been writing more than I ever have. That’s because I’m authoring a book! I have had the incredible fortune to be able to work with Pearson publishers to produce a book in the “Effective” series that was started with Scott Meyers’ “Effective C++”. I am honoured to be able to write a book in this series.
The title of mine is going to be “Effective Objective-C 2.0”. It aims to be a book that teaches how to use Objective-C properly. It is split into over 50 short “Items” that each explain why you should write code in a certain way, or how to use a certain feature. It will help developers who have already read a beginner text and want to learn more.
The writing is going well and I am very close to finishing the first draft now. Then will come the editing phase, which is slightly daunting but I’m very much looking forward to seeing it turn into a real book!
There’s nothing I can show right now, but it will but on Safari “Rough Cuts” soon (I’ll post a link when it is) so if you want to take a sneak peek you will be able to on there. For now, here are a few links to other books in the series that are also excellent:
