« Become an Xcoder », the book I wrote with Bert Altenburg and Alex Clarke, is now available in German.
The German translation was made by Berthold Leimbach and includes updates for the latest version of Xcode in Leopard.
This tutorial is for non-programmers, and is aimed at levelling the Cocoa learning curve as much as possible. In the best tradition, the tutorial is being released as a free booklet in pdf format.
Apart from the new German edition, Become an Xcoder is available in English, Japanese, Chinese and Arabic. It has been downloaded over 123,000 times since the first version was launched in March 2006. The book has found a new burst of popularity since the launch of the iPhone, with the influx of new programmers rushing to the platform, as it is an excellent introduction to Cocoa Touch programming as well.
