More About the Author

Vandad Nahavandipoor is currently an iOS programmer for a leading digital media distributor in London, United Kingdom. He has led an international team of more than 30 iOS developers in his previous job. Some of the projects he has lead include the NatWest and the RBS iOS apps running on millions of iPhones and iPads in the UK. Vandad received his B.Sc and M.Sc in Information Technology for E-Commerce from the University of Sussex in England.

Vandad's programming experience started when he first learned Basic on his father's Commodore 64. He then took this experience and applied it on his uncle's Intel 186 computer, running Basic on DOS. At this point, he found programming for personal computers exciting indeed and moved on to learn Object Pascal. This allowed him to learn Borland Delphi quite easily. He wrote a short 400 pages book on Borland Delphi and dedicated the book to Borland. From then, he picked up x86 Assembly programming and wrote a hobby 32-bit operating system named Vandior. It wasn't until late 2007 when iOS programming became his main focus.

Aside from programming, Vandad is a road cyclist, enjoying friendly competition in cyclosportive events in England and traveling long distance on his bicycle to other European countries every now and then. He also enjoys tinkering with his piano and playing electric guitar. Some of his electric guitar performances are available on YouTube.

Format: Paperback
First of all, i bought the book from another shop, about a month ago. I can say that this book is what a beginner needs to start to implement his ideas. The book is very instructive with a lot of source code to read. The author explains almost every line of code that he writes. If you are a beginner i highly recommend to try to expand every source code on this book using your imagination and write it in Xcode to test it.That's the only way to learn better and faster. I'm an intermediate iOS developer and the reason i bought this book, is because iOS 7 changed so much things for me and i wanted a book that include all this changes together when i need to do something that is different from iOS 6. This book is a cookbook so every section is independent, but with a quick look at each chapter, i found out that the author wrote each chapter in row that make sense. So if you are a new developer, you can read all this book from the beginning to the end. Many times i caught myself to read more sections that the one i wanted due to the physical row the author used to write the contact of his book.
Highly recommended!

Clear and concise example of many IOS features for those that already have some understanding of Objective C and the basics of IOS. If you have just started programming in IOS and want just the skinny on certain functions then this book is for you. If you are just learning Object C then probably not the book for you.

Was expecting more sample programs to see how it all works together but on saying that I'm only half way through, we'll see if I understand it more at the end.

HASH(0x9c220078) out of 5 stars it's an ok book 13 Nov. 2013
By infolock - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Pretty good book that can give you just about all you'll need to get started in iOS. Obviously, Vandad is an awesome developer, but I was looking for a book that focuses on new iOS 7 functionality. Unfortunately, the vast majority of content this book covers is focused primarily on existing functionality, showing a few ways to take advantage of some of the new iOS 7 features.

It's a COOKBOOK, so only pick it up if you've already learnt objective-c and some basic steps for ios programming.

HASH(0x9b34bf30) out of 5 stars Worthy Read 23 Nov. 2013

I had works through about a third of the book on safariflow, and now that it's out I picked it up. It does a good job of covering iOS7.
HASH(0x9b715840) out of 5 stars Does the author even know what he's talking about? 14 Oct. 2015
By Gary L. Wade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While the book does spell things out in small, bite-sized chunks, there are some very glaring errors, some of which make you wonder if the author even knows what he's talking about. One that really got my ire was in Recipe 7.10, Constructing Your Own Dispatch Queues with GCD, paragraph 3, in which he says you must name queues uniquely not only across your own app but across the entire system. I cannot stress just how incredibly wrong this is, both within an app as well as across the system. There is no such requirement, and if there was, this would be the most serious security violation ever. Even though there are other errors like this as well as rabbit holes that you'd never use or even consider, the book does break things out enough that it's a good starting resource, but no matter what, you should always consult Apple's documentation if you decide to use anything written in it.
