Do you want to learn more about programming for the Internet of Things? How about mastering object-oriented programming or game development with Swift? Our latest batch of eBooks will teach you all you need to know about these topics and more. What’s more, they’re all completely free for Envato Elements subscribers to download.
Our Latest Selection of eBooks
This month we’ve made eight new eBooks available for Envato Elements and Tuts+ subscribers to download. Here’s a summary of those books and what you can learn from them.
Swift 3 Object-Oriented Programming
Want to program iOS apps? This book introduces you to the object-oriented paradigm and its implementation in the Swift 3 programming language to help you understand how real-world objects can become part of fundamental reusable elements in the code.
You will organize data in blueprints that generate instances. You’ll work with examples so you understand how to encapsulate and hide data by working with properties and access control. Then, you’ll get to grips with complex scenarios where you use instances that belong to more than one blueprint. You’ll discover the power of contract programming and parametric polymorphism. You’ll combine generic code with inheritance and multiple inheritance. Later, you’ll see how to combine functional programming with object-oriented programming and find out how to refactor your existing code for easy maintenance.
Swift 3 Game Development
Swift is the perfect choice for game development. Developers are intrigued by Swift 3.0 and want to make use of new features to develop their best games yet. Packed with best practices and easy-to-use examples, this book leads you step by step through the development of your first Swift game.
This book starts by introducing SpriteKit and Swift’s new features that can be used for game development. After setting up your first Swift project, you will build your first custom class, learn how to draw and animate your game, and add physics simulations.
Then, you will add the player character, scenes, backgrounds, menus, leaderboards, and much more. By the end of this book, you will be able to create your own iOS games using Swift and SpriteKit.
Learning Functional Data Structures and Algorithms
With the advent of functional programming and with powerful functional languages such as Scala, Clojure and Elixir becoming part of important enterprise applications, functional data structures have gained an important place in the developer toolkit. But how do we express traditional algorithms in functional setting? Won’t we end up copying too much? Do we trade performance for versioned data structures?
This book attempts to answer these questions by looking at functional implementations of traditional algorithms. By the end of the book, you’ll have a solid understanding of functional programming and will be able to write efficient functional data structures and algorithms for your applications.
Angular Test-Driven Development
This is a complete guide that shows you testing techniques with Karma that will help you perform unit testing and end-to-end testing with Protractor. It will show you how to optimize your Angular development process using TDD techniques and ensure your final project is free of bugs. All examples in this book are based on Angular v2 and are compatible with Angular v4.
A primary concern with modern-day applications is that they need to be dynamic, and for that, data access from the server side, data authentication, and security are very important. Angular leverages its services to create such state-of-the-art dynamic applications.
This book will help you create and design customized services, integrate them into your applications, import third-party plugins, and make your apps perform better and faster. This book is up to date for the 2.4 release and is compatible with the 4.0 release as well, and it does not have any code based on the beta or release candidates.
Go Design Patterns
Go is a multi-paradigm programming language that has built-in facilities to create concurrent applications. Design patterns allow developers to efficiently address common problems faced during developing applications.
Go Design Patterns provides you with a reference point to software design patterns and CSP concurrency design patterns to help them build applications in a more idiomatic, robust, and convenient way in Go.
The book starts with a brief introduction to Go programming essentials and design patterns. You will then learn how to apply the 23 Gang of Four (GoF) design patterns in Go and also learn about CSP concurrency patterns, the “killer feature” in Go that has helped Google develop software to maintain thousands of servers.
A functional approach encourages code reuse, greatly simplifies testing, and results in code that is concise and easy to understand. This book will demonstrate how PHP can also be used as a functional language, letting you learn about various function techniques to write maintainable and readable code.
After a quick introduction to functional programming, you will dive right in with code examples so you can get the most of what you’ve learned. Through the tips and best practices in this book, you’ll be able to do more with less code and reduce bugs in your applications. Not only will you be able to boost your performance, but you will also find out how to eliminate common loop problems. By the end of the book, you will know a wide variety of new techniques that you can use on any new or legacy codebase.
