My MonoTouch ebook is out - Build iPhone apps with C# and run on the iPhone

 

My MonoTouch ebook is out.

This Wrox Blox is for .NET developers who want to learn to develop for the iPhone with C# using MonoTouch and MonoDevelop on the Mac. The iPhone is the smartphone leader in mindshare and the amount of money spent on applications. This lead in money spent on applications is expected to grow over the next several years. Objective-C is the native language for iPhone development. .NET developers, who work in the largest general area of development frameworks, have looked at iPhone developers with a great deal of envy. But with the release of MonoTouch, .NET/C# developers can apply their knowledge to iPhone development. This Wrox Blox will provide you with the basics of development on the iPhone with MonoTouch and MonoDevelop.
