This book is a direct response to my frustrations trying to learn to program. It won’t turn you into a programming deity, or instantly get you a programming job, but it will teach you the fundamentals of programming while getting you comfortable in a very powerful (and in-demand) programming language. You’ll have the opportunity to practice programming concepts like variables, loops, and conditionals. Every concept taught in an introductory computer science college course is touched on in this book. Beyond that, you'll get to read interviews with respected industry professionals about their experiences learning to program.

A Bit About Me
Compared to other industry professionals (the type that usually writes programming books), I’m relatively new to the whole coding thing. Although I experimented with various types of programming throughout my life, I didn’t get serious about it until I started college just a few years ago. Now, I know just enough to be helpful, but not so much that I can’t remember what it’s like to be a beginner. If you’re worried that I’m not qualified to teach this book, you’d probably be right. However, since I’ve started college, I’ve gotten over a year’s worth of full-time experience as a Software Engineering Intern, 1.5 years of experience as a part-time iOS Development Consultant, and put 3 apps on the App Store. I’m not an expert by any means, but I promise I’ll walk you through the basics the way I wish I’d been taught. And when we’re done, I’ll give you plenty of resources to pursue if you decide you like this.
