Take Control of Your Apple Home Automation by Josh Centers

Take Control of Your Apple Home Automation by Josh Centers
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 6.4MB
Overview: “Smart home” devices are everywhere these days-you can buy internet-connected light bulbs, thermostats, door locks, sensors, and dozens of other products. But these devices aren’t very smart on their own. Apple’s HomeKit platform offers a way to integrate, monitor, control, and automate smart home devices from a wide variety of manufacturers. Using the built-in Home app on a Mac or iOS device (perhaps along with third-party apps), you can connect to your various smart devices, see what they’re up to, control them, and even get them to operate on a schedule or respond to changing conditions in your home automatically.

Even with HomeKit, however, home automation can be a daunting prospect. That’s why TidBITS Managing Editor Josh Centers wrote Take Control of Apple Home Automation. The book walks you carefully through every step of the process, showing you how you can start with a basic system that costs less than $50 and work your way up to as much complexity as you want or need. And you don’t have to be a computer geek to simplify and improve your life with HomeKit-compatible products. Even if you don’t know a wire nut from a macadamia or which end of a screwdriver to stick in a socket (spoiler: neither!), Josh’s thorough advice will enable you to work wonders in your home.

2D Apple Games By Tutorials, 3rd Edition by Caroline Begbie

2D Apple Games By Tutorials, 3rd Edition by Caroline Begbie, Mike Berg, Michael Briscoe, Ali Hafizji, Marin Todorov and Ray Wenderlich
Requirements: .PDF reader, 20,6 MB
Overview: The book has been completely updated for Swift 4, iOS 11 and Xcode 9, and is available today. We’ve even added an extra bonus chapter to the book covering ARKit! There are two ways to use this book, depending on whether you are a complete beginner to Apple game development or an advanced developer with knowledge of other 2D game frameworks. If you’re a complete beginner to Apple game development, the best way to read this book is from cover to cover. We have arranged the chapters to introduce the material in the most logical manner to build up your skills one layer at a time. If you’re an advanced developer with knowledge of other 2D game frameworks, you’ll have an easier time adapting to SpriteKit, as the core concepts and syntax will look very familiar. Our suggestion is to skim through the early chapters and focus more on the later, more advanced chapters, or where you have a particular interest. Don’t worry – you can jump right into any chapter in the book, because we’ll always have a starter project waiting for you! The book is split into six sections, moving from beginning to advanced topics. In each section, you will create a complete mini-game, from scratch! The book also includes two bonus chapters at the end that we think you’ll enjoy.
