||Application Development in iOS 7|
Unleash the new features of iOS 7 within the latest Xcode development environment. One of the most important pieces of any SDK is the Integrated Development Environment (IDE), which is why we will start by learning all the new features of Xcode 5. Moreover, we will get to know what's new in Foundation Framework, one of the building blocks of iOS development. We then move on to exploring the new and improved Auto Layout, a feature that was previously plagued by quite a few issues and shunned by many developers. Next, we will start building our application from scratch while applying our new knowledge of the IDE. Also, we will make use of the newly introduced TextKit to make our text more dynamic in nature. Finally, we will utilize the UI Kit Dynamics to give our application some flair.
||Learning Nagios 4|
One of the most important challenges in system monitoring is to detect and report any malfunctioning system or device as soon as possible, so that you as an administrator are aware of the problem before a user runs into one.
Nagios is a powerful monitoring tool that enables organizations to identify and resolve IT infrastructure problems before they affect critical business processes. It monitors your entire IT infrastructure to ensure systems, applications, services, and business processes are functioning properly. In the event of a failure, Nagios can alert the technical staff of the problem, allowing them to begin remediation processes before outages affect business processes, end-users, or customers.
||Learning Cocoa with Objective-C, 4th Edition|
Get up to speed on Cocoa and Objective-C, and start developing applications on the iOS and OS X platforms. If you don't have experience with Apple's developer tools, no problem! From object-oriented programming to storing app data in iCloud, the fourth edition of this book covers everything you need to build apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
You'll learn how to work with the Xcode IDE, Objective-C's Foundation library, and other developer tools such as Event Kit framework and Core Animation. Along the way, you'll build example projects, including a simple Objective-C application, a custom view, a simple video player application, and an app that displays calendar events for the user.
||iOS Game Development Cookbook|
Want to build games with iOS technologies? This cookbook provides detailed recipes for a wide range of common iOS game-development issues, ranging from 2D and 3D math to Game Center integration, and OpenGL to performance. If you're familiar with iOS and Objective-C, this is the problem-solving guide you want.
Rather than focus on specific game engines for iOS such as Cocos2D or the Corona SDK, the recipes in this cookbook strictly deal with baked-in iOS technologies. You'll learn solutions for everything from tile-matching games to racing, with working code that you can use right away.
||iOS 7 Game Development|
Sprite Kit, a new framework introduced in iOS7, has been designed as a built-in animation workflow for keyframing 2D animation without the need of engines such as Unity to serve as an intermediate. Sprite Kit enables the easy and fast development cycle, leaving more time to work on gameplay and polish, and less on tedious tasks.
This book offers a practical approach to game development with the Sprite Kit framework of iOS7 platform, by creating an endless runner game. You will gain a full understanding of the new Apple framework along with tips and tricks to interact with the game either by detecting taps, using sophisticated gesture recognizers, and moving sprites by dragging.
||iOS and OS X Network Programming Cookbook|
Darwin, which forms the core set of components for OS X and iOS is compatible with the Single UNIX Specification Version 3 and POSIX UNIX. Therefore OS X and iOS are UNIX operating systems. While there are numerous books and articles written to teach network development in a UNIX environment there is surprisingly little dedicated to teaching network development specifically in an Apple environment. In this book we will be covering the standard UNIX networking stack with BSD Sockets as well as Apple's frameworks like CFNetworking and Bonjour.
iOS and OS X Network Programming Cookbook is an enthralling code-focused book on developing client and server applications for the iOS and OS X environments. You will learn how to integrate a number of Unix (BSD Sockets), Apple specific (CFNetworking, NSMutableURLRequest, Bonjour) and third party APIs (AFNetworking, MKNetworking) with your own apps.
||Application Development with Parse using iOS SDK|
Parse using iOS SDK is a new technology, and is the first of its kind in the field of mobile application development. It provides you the cloud where you can keep your data, host your code, and even your website without any hassle. It provides SDK so that you can access your data through your mobile and web applications.
This practical, hands- on guide will help you to instantly get started with Parse iOS. It is packed with step-by-step exercises, which will help you to take advantage of the real power of the Parse iOS cloud backend service, and provides you with an example- based approach to help you build applications using Parse iOS.
