About the Book :
The purpose of this book is simple: to provide an inside look at the latest Xcode tools from top to bottom. While all introductory Cocoa, Mac OS X and iPhone programming books cover the basics of Xcode (the IDE) and Project Builder, they universally scratch the surface, providing only enough information necessary to allow the reader to write and manage a few source code files and resources in Xcode, and create a simple user interface in Project Builder, perhaps even track down and correct a simple coding error. This of course is necessary, and many applications today show signs of being written with only this basic knowledge of the Xcode tools. However, as the complexity of ones development aspirations grow, as projects become more complex, and users become more demanding, then a full understanding of Xcode and it's tools becomes necessary.
