Written for students and professionals, Swift Algorithms & Data Structures blends modern code, illustrations and computer science to help you pass the technical interview or build your next app.



Introduced by Apple in 2014, Swift is quickly becoming the language of choice due to its simplicity and modern syntax. See how Swift works to create solutions for everyday systems as well as mobile apps. 



When creating modern apps, much of the theory inherent to algorithms is often overlooked. Revised and updated for Swift 3.0, Swift Algorithms & Data Structures takes a fresh approach to explain concepts that power search engines, social networks and database systems.



Based on the popular essay series, the book features the latest Swift 3.0 code and beautiful illustrations for the following techniques:

  • Graphs
  • Linked Lists
  • Big O Notation
  • Sorting
  • Generics
  • Closures
  • Hash Tables
  • Recursion
  • Binary Search Trees
  • Tree Balancing (Rotations)
  • Tries
  • Stacks & Queues
  • Dijkstra's Shortest Path
  • Heaps & Heapsort Operations
  • Depth-First Search
  • Breadth-First Search
  • Control Structures
  • Unit Testing



Great for your Macbook, iPhone or iPad, get the best in EPUB format. Fully compatible with iBooks, create and track important notes from multiple devices. Access hyperlinks to reference material and keep everything synchronized with iCloud.



Jumpstart your development with the supporting source code in Xcode Playground format. Optimized for Xcode 8.0 / Swift 3.0, these standalone files are great for sharing and experimentation.  



More than an ebook, the printed version is professionally bound, measuring 8 x 10 in (21 x 26 cm). Great for classrooms as well as the office, the color book features all the essays and references to additional reading topics. (Ships October 2016).
