In the Swift Quick Syntax Reference, you will find a concise reference to the Swift language syntax using the new Playgrounds. Playgrounds lets you type a line of code and the result appears immediately.

What you’ll learn

  • How to declare and print constants and variables
  • What are and how to use numbers, strings, booleans, tuples, optionals, aliases, global and local variables, assertions and more
  • How to use assignment, arithmetic, comparison, ternary conditional, range, and logical operators
  • What are enumerations, arrays, dictionaries, loops, if/switch, control transfer, labeled statements
  • How to do closures in Swift
  • How to define or handle structures, classes, instances, class instance identity, properties, property observers, type properties, and type methods
  • How to work with subscripts, inheritance, overriding methods/properties, initialization, type checking/casting, nested types, extensions, delegation, generics and more...

    Who this book is for

    This book is a quick, handy syntax reference for experienced Objective-C, Mac, and iOS programmers, and a concise, easily-digested introduction for other programmers new to Mac, iOS and of course Swift.
