Aaron founded the Ranch injust one highlight hillegss a glowing career that began in childhood. He began programming at the ripe old age of 10 in the basement of the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry.
There, he wrote the data structures library for Tower Eiffel, before leaving to work on Wall Street to help create mortgage-backed securities a device that would, fifteen years later, bring our entire economy to its knees. But Aaron is no stranger to having such hillegazs huge impact.
He wrote the book widely regarded to be the bible of Mac development: This guide is now in its fourth edition and has been translated into French, German, Korean, Japanese and Chinese.
He has created apps for Fortune companies, he could eat a gallon of flan and he can touch his tongue to his nose. All this and so much more is why MacTech consistently names Aaron one of the top 25 most influential people in the Mac community.
Cocoa Programming for OS X : The Big Nerd Ranch Guide
Updated for hillegaws 10, Swift 3 and Xcode 8, this book will lead you through the essential concepts, techniques and tools for developing iOS applications. After completing it, you will have the know-how and confidence you need to tackle iOS projects of your own.
I wonder, however, if Hullegass technologies have received all the attention and left no space to discuss other trends. In this post, I thought I would mention some interesting stuff that the web team at Big Nerd Ranch is working on.
Big Nerd Ranch was founded on the idea that developers learn best when immersed in a distraction-free environment. If current trends continue, most babies born today will never own a laptop or a desktop computer.
They will coca a smart phone, and at home they will have a streaming device connected to their TV. That streaming device will run apps. And that leads us to why your company needs a tvOS app. The answer is… both. Like most people over 40, I have lots of opinions about how people should live their lives.
Recognizing that no one wants this unsolicited advice, I work hard to keep these opinions to myself. However, today Tasha who curates our blog asked me to write some advice to the young people who are graduating this spring.
Cocoa Programming for OS X : Aaron Hillegass :
We write really good software. We do continuous integration and automated testing throughout the process.
This post is about why starting a company is just dumb. I started a successful company. Voices that Matter is going to let me do the keynote on the first morning of their iOS conference this spring.
The conference is April 9 and 10 in Seattle. You should come — it is a well-run and informative hilldgass.
Early-bird pricing ends on Feb 25, so sign up now. Until recently, if you bought the Kindle version of our iPhone book you were buying something that was generated from our PDF. In particular, all the code blocks were just images from the PDF. I just open sourced a simple persistence layer for Cocoa and iPhone that uses Tokyo Cabinet. If you are frustrated with Core Data, you might find it useful. Check it out on GitHub. I was asked three times last week how I find how long an activity takes on the Mac and the iPhone.
In many ways it is much better than AppKit. Last week, my colleague Joe Conway wrote a posting suggesting that dot-notation was not a great addition to the Objective-C language and that he felt that programmers should not use it. I, myself, was shocked that people cared at all. Here is the video and sample code.
Big Nerd Ranch has a reputation for mind-blowingly excellent Cocoa and iPhone training. A reputation like this is difficult to maintain. In particular, our students expect our instructors to be experienced, friendly, knowledgeable, articulate, and committed. We apologize for the missing content on this page. You can find other posts on XML and related topics at our blog. My editor at Addison-Wesley wrote me today. A lot of little things were tidied up.
All modern printers can print to within one third of an inch of the edge of the paper. I had a bug where I was mutating a collection while iterating over it — Also, the template pages had no calendars for or At Big Nerd Ranch, we follow a pretty minimal style for our slides. It is important to us, however, that our slide shows go in and out of subversion easily.
Also, it is important that we can easily generate a book from a collection of slide shows. As such, we have written our own replacement for PowerPoint. I am celebrating the arrival of Mac OS X Here is the compiled application. I am speaking this week at the OpenBase Summit I am doing a short introduction to Cocoa. LightSpeed stores its data in OpenBase. The engineers in the class created a a blog of their experience.
While zipping around town on this beautiful spring day, I noticed that nearly all of the cars were occupied by exactly one person.
This evening they did a great piece about Big Nerd Ranch. When I released PagePacker a week ago, I thought it might be handy for a few people. I often wander around without a computer, so I needed a nice easy way to print important bits into little books of information that I could carry around in my pocket.
Chad Adams figured out a brilliant technique of cutting and folding pieces of paper into little cocpa and called it PocketMod. The technique was hillefass, but the software was a little awkward.

So I, knowing a little about Cocoa, hacked together PagePacker. Click here to download PagePacker. It is a universal binary that runs on MacOS X It has some informative help, too.
This version will expire in June. In June, it will cocooa time to upgrade to a new version for Leopard. For much hillegsas the hilleass of computers, technical training has received very little attention. I started Big Nerd Ranch because I thought it could be taken to another level — expert instructors, relevant materials, great settings.
But for the last five years, I have been looking over my shoulder for something terrible to happen. I was expecting a flood of submissions, but only received five. As a xocoa, I am working on a piece of software for an engineering firm. The engineers would like an easy way to write plugins for the application. This posting is to share the three examples that I wrote in my exploration. These days, when you create a palette project, Xcode creates a palette target and a framework target.
This article, originally published in MacTech Magazinegives tips on how to write your code such that retain count problems are coocoa to find and how to locate the problem when symptoms appear.
We have created the Big Nerd Ranch Weblog so that we can share some knowledge with everyone. We sincerely hope that the information presented here is useful. We will be talking about the stuff we consult and teach classes on:.
