About a year ago, the blog was about crowdfunding for “Entry into SwiftUI”, the first German-language book on Apple's UI framework. What has become of it? Has the funding target been achieved? And can you buy the book now? I'll answer these questions in this little update.
The post of December 11, 2019 was called Crowdfunding for the first German SwiftUI book. There you will find details about the fundraising campaign that was running at the time. With these the work should be realized. On the website for the campaign you can still see that the project was successful. The financing target was achieved to 109%, the book was written and also printed. It provides information from the basics to the complex view hierarchies and data processing. Sample projects for everyone who wants to deal intensively with the topics are also included. The book has been in stores since October 2020.
As a bound book you will find "Getting Started with SwiftUI" for example here at Amazon. It costs 34,99 euros - if that's too expensive for you, there is also the e-book version for the Kindle reader or the Kindle app for 27,99 euros. With the manual you will learn how to create user interfaces for macOS, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS and tvOS. Updates to the content can be obtained online; there is a code for this in the book. The update service runs until October 2022. The content includes 7 chapters as well as an epilogue and an index. Thomas Sillmann's work comprises a total of 261 pages.
In a 5-star rating of the book on Amazon, it says under the heading "Excellent textbook": "The book is not too lengthy but goes into depth where it is necessary. I can recommend the book to everyone".
