Slides and Sample Code from my 360|iDev Talks

I’ve had the pleasure of speaking at this year’s 360|iDev conference, which so far has been an amazing conference. I’ll post more when the conference is done, but since I’m done speaking, here are my slides and sample code:

Out of Beta!

I’m happy to announce that Developing for Apple Watch, Second Edition is now out of beta! You can order the eBook version and receive it nearly-instantly, order a paper edition, or order both and get the eBook now and the paper edition in the mail. And of course, it’s available on Amazon if you prefer to buy it there (but if you want to support me and the Pragmatic Bookshelf, buy it direct!).

One of the more interesting things I did for this book was to create a promotional video for it. With some guidance by Chris Adamson, I used Motion to stitch together some music, the cover image of the book, and some screen captures to bring the book to life in a more visual format. It’s on YouTube, so I guess this is where I say, “Be sure to like and subscribe!”

Developing for Apple Watch

After a long time of writing, my second book has been published! Developing for Apple Watch is now available from the Pragmatic Bookshelf in both paper and eBook formats! This is a “Pragmatic exPress” book, meaning it’s a shorter look at a specific technology. It’s also available on Amazon if you’d prefer it that way.jkwatch

The book introduces WatchKit, Apple’s technology for making Apple Watch apps. With 100% of its code in Swift, you’ll be ready to go with the latest Apple technology. Get it now and get a head start on making watch apps before WWDC!
