AV Foundation for iOS and OS
X® Programming—Get Started
If you develop media-rich iOS or OS X apps, you can do amazing things with Apple’s AV Foundation. However, the framework is extremely large, reliant on cutting-edge language features, and poorly documented. Now, there’s a more productive way to master these immensely powerful technologies: Bob McCune’s Learning AV Foundation.
McCune’s live presentations and GitHub projects have already helped thousands of Apple developers get started with AV Foundation. Building on his experience, McCune helps you gain true mastery by creating real-world apps, hands-on.
You’ll build a voice memo app, custom video player, video editor, and an image/video camera app. As you proceed, you’ll master all the techniques you need to write your own advanced media apps from scratch. Throughout, McCune provides carefully crafted challenges and complete starter apps—all designed to help you deepen your understanding and make the most of Apple’s breakthrough media framework.
