This book took up the better part of 15 months to polish into the only one its kind. It just might be the very first vertical tech book.
I am not referring to the way how you would place it on your shelf. A horizontal book typically would only cover one technology layer. A vertical book, like this one, slices through multiple technologies that are to some degree connected to barcode technologies. Using barcodes as a common theme, it introduces several other technologies which complement barcodes nicely: RESTful web-services, OAuth, iBeacons, Core Location, NSURLSession, MapKit, Core Image, AVFoundation and many more.
You also get a €150 value included for free with this book: you get a free license to use BarCodeKit, the only modern framework for generating 1D barcodes on iOS and OS X.
I’ve been asked if this book has lost some of its relevancy due to the growth of Swift. To this I can say “certainly not!” because all of the presented concepts work seamlessly in Objective-C and Swift. Also, most of the sample code is already available in Swift on the public GitHub repo.
Besides the book’s homepage on Manning you can also get the book:
