Scott Stevenson Is Writing a Cocoa Book for O’Reilly

I’m looking forward to this one. Sounds like he’s given a lot of thought to one of the toughest problems facing anyone writing a Cocoa book: how much C do you assume the reader knows?

I decided to teach a core set of C concepts that apply directly to Mac and iPhone programming, leaving out the archaic C conventions that Cocoa has better answers for. So this book has only two chapters on C. They focus on just the parts that you need to be a productive Cocoa programmer.

There’s already a web site dedicated to the book, and it’s available as an O’Reilly “Rough Cut”.
