The winner of iOS Auto Layout Demystified is…Riley Testut.
Congrats Riley! Contact me by email to claim your prize.
Next week will be giving away a copy of iOS Core Animation: Advanced Techniques, by Nick Lockwood.
The book is now in its second edition, with updates for iOS 7 and Xcode 5.
I purchased the first edition of iOS Auto Layout, and I can say, the style mirrors Erica’s other books: easy to follow, in-depth explanations and well thought out code examples. I’m confident this second edition builds upon the first, providing an excellent resource for mastering iOS Auto Layout.
In her own words, Erica provides some background on iOS Auto Layout Demystified:
When Auto Layout debuted, a lot of developers gave it a try — primarily through Interface Builder — and encountered stumbling block after stumbling block . Many eventually figured out how to disable the technology in their projects, returning to struts and springs layout.
Auto Layout is simultaneously one of the most frustratingly hair-pulling-out technologies ever as well as one of the coolest most powerfully enabling. That’s because the learning curve has been so high. So I wrote a book — one that explains Auto Layout so you don’t have struggle through learning how to use it.
So much of Auto Layout involves simple, repeating tasks that if you figure out how to apply the basics everything else falls into place. In Auto Layout Demystified, I ended up covering the technology from basic tasks to the esoteric, enabling you to take advantage of this new UI system without all the frustration.
