About the Book

With Swift and its features the Reactive programming has become even more powerful. This book will introduce you to RP with Swift using ReactiveCocoa.

The book provides a lot of examples in a project that you can run and test on your own. If you had ever thought about learning RP but you didn't, this book is the perfect opportunity to start with it.
