Discover the do’s and don’ts involved in crafting readable Swift code as you explore common Swift coding challenges and the best practices that address them. From spacing, bracing, and semicolons to proper API style, discover the whys behind each recommendation, and add to or establish your own house style guidelines. This practical, powerful, and opinionated guide offers the best practices you need to know to work successfully in this equally opinionated programming language.
Apple’s Swift programming language has finally reached stability, and developers are demanding to know how to program the language properly. Swift Style guides you through the ins and outs of Swift programming best practices. This is the first best practices book for serious, professional Swift programmers and for programmers who want to shine their skills to be hired in this demanding market.
A style guide offers a consistent experience of well-crafted code that lets you focus on the code’s underlying meaning, intent, and implementation. This book doesn’t offer canonical answers on Swift coding style. It explores the areas of Swift where structure comes into play. Whether you’re developing a personal style or a house style, there are always ways to enhance your code choices. You’ll find here the ideas and principles to establish or enhance your own best style practices.
Begin with simple syntactical styling. Strengthen code bracing for easy readability. Style your closures for safety and resilience. Perfect spacing and layout. Master literal initialization and typing. Optimize control flow layout and improve conditional style choices. Transition from Objective-C and move code into Swift the right way. Boost API design using proper naming and labeling. Elevate defaulted arguments and variadics to their right places. Finally, Erica offers her own broad recommendations on good coding practice.

The role of developmental biology and embryology in the life and medical sciences today is increasing at an unprecedented rate. For example, the first Nobel Prize awarded to an embryologist or developmental biologist was awarded in 1935 to Hans Spemann "for his discovery of the organizer effect in embryonic development"; the second was awarded jointly in 1995 to Edward B. Lewis, Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard and Eric F. Wieschaus "for their discoveries concerning the genetic control of early embryonic development"; eight Nobel Prizes have been awarded since 2000 in fields that play roles in developmental biology, the most recent being the 2012 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine awarded jointly to Sir John B. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka "for the discovery that mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent" . Medical schools are opening divisions devoted to applying the principles of developmental biology to combat diseases and repair injuries.
Developmental biology is a burgeoning discipline within biology, as well as being one of its most rapidly expanding intellectual frontiers. A Dictionary of Human Developmental Biology and Embryology is needed in the field today because the terminology relevant to the human aspect of this field has exploded, due to the incredible progress that has been made in the understanding and, in some instances, in the manipulation of human development. Evidence in support of this assertion is the awarding of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology for work done in this field. Additionally, Departments of Regenerative Medicine and Departments of Translational Medicine are springing up at major medical centers around the globe.
Topics covered will range from stem cells (embryonic, adult, and iPSCs, etc.) to teratology. Fundamentalterminology in the field of human developmental biology, since the beginning of the field through RNAi, epigenesis, Yamanaka factors, etc. and clinical application of such research, will be the foundation of this book. In addition, the Dictionary will include the major discoveries and significant scientists that comprise the history and current development of the field. The dictionary will provide both the basic background terminology needed by pre-health professions/biology major undergraduate students and early-stage graduate students, as well as being a reference of interest to university professors, researchers and peers in related disciplines.

The Art of Horizon Zero Dawn is the ultimate gallery of the hotly anticipated new IP from Guerrilla Games (Killzone series). It focuses on the stunning artwork used to develop the game, and includes over 300 images, sketches, and concept art, commentary throughout from the artists and creators. This is an in-depth insight into a world as beautiful as it is dangerous.
Over 1000 years ago a cataclysm destroyed life as we know it, forcing humans to the brink of extinction. In our place machines rose, and nature took back our cities, until all that was left of our world was the rumours of the old ones and the ruins of a civilisation long past. The tribes of the new world live scattered, some small and humble, some as powerful as kings. If Aloy, an outcast and hunter, is to find her true place in this world she must combat the great robotic creatures of the land and uncover the mysteries of a lost civilisation.
