    This is a tremendous book Aimed at developers that already have some experience with Swift the book’s promise is to help them write better code in their real world Swift projects In a handful of words this means balancing the right techniues and Swift features to craft robust code think compile time safety code that better expresses intent and is thus easily maintaned and why not code that’s also uite ellegantThe book is fairly easy to read Concepts are explored gradually with a focus on how to reason about the various constructs of Swift Different approaches to solving a certain problem are presented side by side with pro’s and con’s presented for all cases Theoretical aspects are balanced by an abundance of code examples than you’d normally find in a programming book The author has put a lot of effort into demystifying abstract concepts on the spot into the mundane but useful examples you’re likely to encounter in your day to day work as a programmer There’s little place in this book for highly theoretical constructs and focus is clearly set on exemplyfing techniues with code samples Worth noting these are less like “class Foo” of “func Bar” geeky examples and like snippets you’d see in a real project such as a Network Layer with monadic error handling or useful additions you can make to Swift’s built in SeuenceCollection typesIn my case the list of takeaways after finishing “Swift in Depth” is by no means shortHow to reason about generics and protocols with associated types When to favor compile time generics and when usage of run time protocols will save you some embarrassment Asynchronous error handling with a touch of ellegance Harvesting the power of enums The benefits of conditional conformance High order functions flatMap anyone? And how to nod politely when colleagues mention rigid class hierarchies in the days of protocol oriented design And when it is socially acceptable to use forced unwrapping of optionals was that in the mornings right before going to lunch? Oh nevermindThere’s bits as well for those willing to explore the really shadydifficult constructs of Swift Think type erasure and othersThere’s also bits of comical relief here and there I’ll just note down my favourite which is when the author feeds the “OMG Shoes” text to an URL initializer

    An excellent book on Swift programming to open your eyes to beyond the basics of whats possibile with the langugage

    The book did meet the expectations Sometimes while reading it I had the feeling that it was too easy but some other chapters were uite interesting no the material itself but way of solving a problem and the kind of issues that it explains I found it a bit easy in general but that also makes for a delightful readI end up with a bunch of new flash cards to lean and even a couple of ideas for making Katas I make a note in my reader and may retake them when neededIt is a perfect read for an intermediate developer to give a gentle push to your knowledge
