Product description

About the Author

Marcel Weiher is a software engineeer and researcher with more than 25 years of experience with Cocoa-related technologies. Marcel’s work has always been performance-focused, ranging from solving impossible pre-press problems on the machines of the day via optimizing one of the world’s busiest web properties at the BBC to helping other Apple engineers improve the performance of their code on Apple’s Mac OS X performance team.

In addition to helping established companies and startups create award-winning software and turn around development teams, Marcel also teaches, blogs, speaks at conferences, contributes to open source, and invents new techniques such as Higher Order Messaging. He also works on programming languages, starting with an Objective-C implementation in 1987 and culminating in the Objective-Smalltalk architecture research language. Marcel currently works as a principal software engineer at Microsoft Berlin and maintains his own software and consulting company, metaobject ltd.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're an experienced iOS / macOS developer you'll find this book to be like an extended conversation with a long-time expert 2 April 2017
By Gary W. Longsine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is well written, thoughtful, and accessible to beginning developers. If you're new to the platform this is a must-read. If you're an experienced iOS / macOS developer you'll find this book to be like an extended conversation with a long-time expert. It's more than helpful and the author's candor is refreshing. Marcel Weiher has opinions based on deep experience, and he knows the difference between an opinion and an objective fact. This book is rich with helpful examples showing how to circle in upon a performance issue which might not be obvious at first blush. Developers, if you work on a team you'll want your managers to read this book, too. (I am the CEO of illumineX, inc, maker of custom software for large enterprises and consumer software for macOS and iOS. I'm going to give a copy of this book to every developer on my team.)

5.0 out of 5 stars lots of useful information. Could use better editing 3 May 2017

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very talented writer, lots of useful information. Could use better editing: more than a few typos and the level of the book bounces around a lot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Respected Engineer, New Classic Treatise 27 April 2017
By JJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Marcel is a former Apple engineer who's thoughts and opinions are strong, well-informed and are still well-respected within that large pool of excellent software minds. This book is awesome and if you intend to do anything on a macOS or iOS (or any other Apple platform) do buy and read this book. Wisdom and experience and yes strongly worded pragmatism throughout.
I will add to it that Mr. Weiher is well known as an advocate of all of the things SmallTalk brought to Objective-C and you should understand the perspective he presents is that Objective-C is a strong and flexible language. Understanding this will make more sense in reading the book.
