50 high-performance techniques for seasoned Objective-C developers: fully harness Objective-C's expressive power to write better code! * *Objective-C insider Matt Halloway brings together powerful best practices, patterns, and shortcuts you won't find anywhere else *Includes expert solutions and sample code for both iOS and Mac OS X *Helps you avoid common mistakes that lead to entangled, unmaintainable code *Shows how to make the most of Grand Central Dispatch and other key system libraries *Guides you to a far deeper understanding of the language and runtime *Follows the enormously popular 'Effective' format proven in Scott Meyers' classic Effective C++ Effective Objective-C 2.0 will help you harness all of Objective-C's expressive power to write OS X or iOS code that works superbly well in production environments. Using the concise, scenario-driven style pioneered in Scott Meyers' best-selling Effective C++, Matt Galloway brings together 52 Objective-C best practices, tips, shortcuts, and realistic code examples that are available nowhere else. Through realistic examples, Galloway uncovers little-known Objective-C quirks, pitfalls, and intricacies that powerfully impact code behavior and performance. You'll learn how to choose the most efficient and effective way to accomplish key tasks when multiple options exist, and how to write code that's easier to understand, maintain, and improve. Galloway goes far beyond the core language, helping you integrate and leverage key Foundation Framework classes and modern system libraries, such as Grand Central Dispatch. Coverage includes * *Optimizing interactions and relationships between Objective-C objects *Mastering interface and API design: writing classes that feel 'right at home' *Using protocols and categories to write maintainable, bug-resistant code *Avoiding memory leaks that can still occur even with Automatic Reference Counting (ARC) *Writing modular, powerful code with Blocks and Grand Central Dispatch *Leveraging differences between Objective-C protocols and multiple inheritance in other languages *Improving code by using arrays, dictionaries, and sets more effectively *Uncovering surprising power in the Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks50 high-performance techniques for seasoned Objective-C developers: fully harness Objective-Ca#39;s expressive power to write better code! * *Objective-C insider Matt Halloway brings together powerful best practices, patterns, and shortcuts you ...
