Book Description

4 Dec 2012 IOS App Development for Non-Programmers
Updated for iOS 7 and Xcode 5!

Reviews:
"Dedicated to Steve Jobs, this self published book highlights much of what Jobs himself strove for - clear, crisp design, intuitive interface and user experience coupled with high quality, clear content." - Digital Book World, 2013


"Most of the books I scanned, even the “Dummies” series, assumed a basic knowledge of computer programming even for iOS beginners. What I like about Kevin’s writing is that he doesn’t make any assumptions – he just takes you there – step by step." - Lorraine Akemann - Moms With Apps

Unleash the App Developer Within!
This first book in the series from Kevin McNeish, award-winning App Developer, highly acclaimed iOS trainer and conference speaker, is specifically designed to teach non-programmers how to create Apps for the iPhone and iPad. Many books designed for the beginning Apple developer assume way too much. In contrast, this book series assumes you know nothing about programming.

This first book is your "easy in" and builds confidence that you can write Apps for the iPhone and iPad. Each chapter and exercise has been reviewed by people like you--with little or no experience in how to make an App. Many sections of the book were rewritten, diagrams were added, and examples improved until all "beta readers" completely understood each key concept.


Up to Date With the Latest Apple Technologies
The information in this book is applicable to the latest iOS technologies including the iOS 7 and XCode 5. You will learn about storyboards, scenes, navigation, displaying lists of data, animating transitions between scenes, using maps, and much more.

Includes Step-by-Step Instructional Videos!
There are seven step-by-step instructional videos in which you watch the author create each part of the App. This is great for non-programmers who might need some extra help.

Not a "Dumbed Down" Series!
Ultimately, readers will learn everything that is taught in the regular written-for-programmer books. This series simply provides more background information and more thorough explanations for those who haven't had formal education or a career in software development.

Review
"Very often these 101-type books can fail with their slightly patronizing tone. Kevin J McNeish triumphs with his spring over and beyond this hurdle. His first 'easy in' publication in a series, comprises short, concise and engaging chapters and exercises that have been reviewed by testers from the demographic that the book is intended for. Kevin's writing style is light and easy to follow, with sections of short-form content that get to the point with a steady, yet no-nonsense, pace. The visuals and design are bright and the image references hyperlink to clear screenshots, integrated video and explanatory sections." - Publishing Innovation Awards

More About the Author

So, I was supposed to be an electronic engineer - a hardware guy.

While I was in college, I worked at a small company as I paid my way through school. Brian, the head of the software department, would tell me on a regular basis " You know, I think you're a software guy!"

Hardware guys typically do not want to be software guys, so I just ignored it as good-natured harassment. Then one day I decided to get him off my back by giving it a try. As they say, the rest is history. I fell in love with writing software, and the honeymoon still isn't over.

I learned that writing software is a very creative process. In just a matter of hours, I could conceive an idea, create a software design and have it up and running on a computer.

The first software I wrote was a tutorial program that helped new computer users understand how a computer works (this was not long after the birth of the PC). I came up with the idea after watching new computer users give up on themselves before they started.

Since then, I've devoted teaching career to making difficult concepts easy to understand. So, when Apple released the iPhone and a platform for building Apps, I immediately started teaching classes to impower others to join this software revolution and share in the fun. Maybe you'll find you're a software "guy" too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first primer 4 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Came across this new series whilst searching through for promising Kindle books. I have tried both traditional paper books and the ebook versions and find having the ebook version alongside my MacBook on my iPad makes for a better reading experience than trying to stop a paper book's pages from turning when not required!

Anyway, to the book. I like the way Kevin McNeish, the author, takes nothing for granted and truly writes for beginners, which is exactly what I am. He explains everything in sufficient detail and doesn't make the mistake some books, supposedly for beginners, make in assuming the reader has come from another programming language.

The topics covered in the first book are enough to get the reader interested and, dare I say, excited enough to want more. I could hardly wait after completing this book to go and purchase the second book in the series Book 2: Flying with Objective C - iOS App Development for Non-Programmers (The Series on How to Write iPhone & iPad Apps), so I did!

And, no, despite the fact I share a Scottish surname with the author, I am not related or associated in anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful introduction 18 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book very helpful in giving me confidence to design an app. Clearly, the difficult bit will come in book 2: learning to code. However, it's also evident that you need to do the design work first, before investing time and energy in writing the underlying code, so this was a great way to get started. Just occasionally, I got frustrated, like the moment where I was told to delete a few lines of code without being told why. I feel I'd learn better if I knew what I was doing. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to get a feel for how to get started with iOS7.
