The title of my book, The Missing Manual for Swift Development, accurately describes what I have in store for you. It’s the guide I wish I had when I started out as a software developers years and years ago.

The Missing Manual for Swift Development is a summary of what I’ve learned over the years building software for Apple’s ecosystem. Many of the lessons in my book I learned from experts in their field and, unfortunately, just as many I learned the hard way. I hope that some of the topics in this book can help you on your way to become remarkable in what you do. That’s your goal. Is it not?

Writing a few lines of Swift is surprisingly easy. Once you start to dig deeper, though, you discover that building an application for Apple’s ecosystem is more challenging than it seems. The Missing Manual for Swift Development outlines the challenges you face along your journey and how to overcome them.

Some of the more obvious topics I cover include dependency management, source control, code reviews, continuous integration, style guides, working in a team, tooling, project organization and documentation, and release strategies.
The topics I found most interesting to write about, however, are more meta, such as when to break the rules, freelancing and subcontracting, staying productive as a developer, shipping projects, leaving your comfort zone, and dealing with challenging problems.

My book doesn’t include many code snippets or sample projects. The goal of this book is to provide insights and answers to questions that are often overlooked or ignored.

The Missing Manual for Swift Development is for every type of developer, but it primarily focuses on Swift and Cocoa development. If

you’re developing for Apple’s ecosystem, then you’ll find a lot of useful information, regardless of your experience.
There are very few shortcuts in software development. You pay a price for most of the shortcuts you read about, one way or another. But there are a handful of shortcuts that can speed up your learning and your career. A proper education is one of them.

I hope that my book helps you in some way, big or small. If it does, then let me know. I’d love to hear from you.
Enjoy, Bart
