Everything you need to know about swift is here

This has been an excellent audiobook; despite the fact that I've been programming in Swift for my full-time job for the past two years, I've learned something new virtually every line of this course. MG Martin has a knack for grasping the basics and explaining why things work the way they do. I really couldn't list all the useful things I've learnt as there's simply too many but the very thorough explanation of value types vs reference types and he doesn't just skip over a complex subject just to show us how something works but goes right through to how something happens. Closures is another case where he explained the full structure of a closure and how these functions work. I'd recommend anyone who takes this course to listen the lecture note after or before part by part and play around with the code yourself in a playground. Not so much to memorise but to enhance your understanding. Packed full of useful information and sometimes went on a bit too long for a smaller amount of content but really squeezed the most out of every minute of the audio. Excellent course, I'll be keeping my eye out for the next one.

This audiobook is essential to reach a professional level in iOS development. There are many courses that promise audible take you from beginner to professional, but the fact is that only touch the basics of iOS development. In this audiobook you will find the next level to become a professional. The book includes very advanced concepts, the narration are very easy to understand and the explanations of the tutor are very good. Of course, it is not a course for beginners as well as for the advance peoples. Thanks to this audiobook I am discovering things I was doing wrong. The book is very well structured and very well developed. I will need many hours to assimilate all the concepts included. For the price it is an absolute opportunity to move from a novice to a professional programmer.

This audiobook is very informative I swear

This audiobook is very informative but not a complete guide on Swift. It was very fascinating to read all those facts about Basic Fundamental Guide of swift. This book including in a wide range of informative description about swift must help you to get introduced with such an amazing topics and its exercising procedures.

This is without a doubt the best Swift course available. I know because I've taken a lot of them, and no one does a better job of covering the essentials than MG. Over the last year, I've spent a lot of time on the foundations, not developing apps and learning the language as I go, but focusing on the finer points.We have all the tools we need to tackle any Swift challenge moving forward if we understand the fundamentals, and this is the one and only audiobook you should listen to!

Thanks MG MArtin for this great guide about swift, I also loved the naration af Mr. William Bahl, it was so clear and not boring unlike other narrator of some books.

Extremely well-written

It is concise and clear, extremely well-written and user friendly. I especially enjoyed the overall 'feel' of the book. The graphics are wonderful and the highlighting of the main topic at the end of each chapter gives a good deeper dive dimension to the information presented. Highly recommend. Bravo, MG Martin!

Making it a perfect reference

The author's method of presenting information is a perfect way to learn. It's clear and repetitive in a way that fosters memory of the concepts. It was easy to follow and understand at a comfortable pace, making it a perfect reference guide for those wanting to really dig into learning. Beyond that aspect, it was also clever and fun!

This is certainly a good book to buy

If you want to learn Swift, this is a great book to get. It contains detailed chapters on data types, control flow, functions, object-oriented programming, property wrappers, and error handling. One of the best books on programming languages. A very succinct tutorial at the beginning allows you to get the grip of the language and then the rest of the book serves as a reference to go in-depth into the language.

Amazing beginners guide

Anyone who wishes to learn fundamental Swift programming skills or improve their Swift programming skills can profit from the author's efforts. M.G. Martin depicts every aspect of the Swift. I was able to master the fundamentals of Swift programming after completing this guide. Swift language's code is remarkable on every level. Perfect, very well-explained, and a great guide to learn in-depth concepts of social applications.

This is my favorite Audible course

This is my favorite Audible course, despite the fact that it is a tedious part of the learning process. Mr. MG Martin is engaging, entertaining, and a great teacher, but it's the way he laid out and guided the course that really stands out to me. He has clearly considered which parts of the material to explain at each stage of progression in order to maximize both student comprehension and enjoyment.

Perfect, very well-explained, and a great guide

I had a hard time looking for the right adio book guide for me. But when I came across his lectures on audible, I was sure that I would stick with MG’s courses to improve my skills in iOS field. I have taken other audio books from big named companies and online lectures, but there are several things that separate MG’s lectures from others. First of all, he approaches the concept not as an instructor. In other words, he focuses on the “Why” part of the material, then “How to” part. This helped me a lot because before, I was learning stuffs because the instructors taught us how to use them. But now, I know why certain things are important and why things work in certain ways. Secondly, Length of this audio book is 1 hr and 31 mins which are short, and this not only allowed me to listen to the lectures without getting distracted, but also gave me curiosity to go find more information about the topics that he teach. Sometimes, it gives me a clearer idea of the topics that he instructed. Third, he has a big heart for his listeners. He likes being close to his listeners. I can sum up MG’s lectures in three words: compact, concise, and compelling. His lectures are not too long subject wise and essential, and he also gives extra references to study. So if you are looking for these qualities, MG Martin is the person to go with !

I have completed the course and I can say that's exactly what happens here. You really learn Swift with MG. The concepts that are carried out in this book can become quite dense, complex, maybe boring. But the way it’s been taught by MG removes all this and makes you keep going. He explains you everything that happens while is coding, including what happens in the background. As a teacher, he is very motivating. It makes summaries at the end of each lesson as well each part and is always encouraging you to keep going. Very comfortable. One of the things that differentiates this course with any other that I made and, definitely, what I like most, is the narrationtion of Bahl with the content og MG. Incredibly useful to follow the guideline. Even if you do not know anything about Swift I recommend starting here. MG will provide you with the resources that you need to begin. I am waiting for her next course. Will be worth.

Very informative and great guide to beginners!

This is the best audio book for any level of programming. It doesn't matter if you are a beginner or an intermediate swift programmer, MG Martin has covered each and every topic in a very effective manner. The examples are very simple and yet effective. I have seen many other tutorials where they complicate things by giving a lot of inputs in one shot but MG delivers the content in a simple and effective manner !

I know Bahl from so many narration and he always choose the best ones and that is why I am looking what I expecting and got the narration of Bahl and saw he narrated the things which I was looked for and I was so happy to found the book of MG Martin. And his content always was useful and exciting. I have been learning iOS development from a lot resources such as "Let's Build That App", "iOS from Beginner to Paid Professional" etc., but none of them wasn't solid for me as the MG's course. At this course you will understand the fundamentals of the Swift programming language. Enjoy!

This audiobook will help point you in the right direction. I must say, it is a great source or reference for what you need to know. I love this audiobook, very informative and great guide to beginners!

It is well written by the author. Grateful!

Swift is Apple's new programming language for creating apps. There are a few Swift programmers who begin by learning the language after having some experience with other languages such as C, Objective-C, and C++. This guide provided me with a wealth of previously unknown information. It is well written by the author. Grateful!

I believe that this is a fantastic book.

Because the reviews for this book were positive, I decided to buy it. It's pretty good and informative. I'm a beginner, and I was looking for a good book. I don't know how to program right now, but as I began to listen, I discovered that the exercises are clear and easy to understand. I believe that this is a fantastic book.
