iOS App Development for Non-Programmers Earns Publishing Innovation Award

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va., Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Oak Leaf Enterprises, a small publishing company in Charlottesville VA, has earned this year's prestigious Publishing Innovation Award in the Best Self-Published Book category for "iOS App Development for Non-Programmers." This new book series teaches readers with little or no programming experience how to create Apps for the iPhone and iPad.

The award was announced this week at the 2013 Digital Book World Conference at the New York Hilton. "The Publishing Innovation Awards honor the most innovative ebooks, enhanced ebooks, and book apps in 14 categories. It is the mission of the PIAs to highlight excellent publishers/authors, encourage new thinking and improve the reading experience in the digital age." - Publishing Innovation Awards

"iOS App Development for Non-Programmers" uses innovative techniques such as interactive diagrams, high definition images, code samples in full color, a hyperlinked glossary and HD video to help a wide range of readers create Apps for the iOS platform.

"It's gratifying to receive this award after spending so much time and energy to make the most of each platform on which the book is published and provide the user with an exceptional learning experience," says Kevin McNeish, book author and Chief Software Architect of Oak Leaf Enterprises, Inc.

McNeish was inspired to write this book series in October of 2011 while speaking at a software conference in San Francisco at the time of Steve Job's death. He purposed to write a book series that would do for App development what Steve Jobs had done for users of iOS devices—make App development accessible to the masses of non-programmers.

"I find that I need to give readers a mental picture of how code works behind the scenes in order for them to fully grasp the concepts and become successful App developers," McNeish says. "The multi-media tools available in e-Book platforms such as iBooks, allows readers to make the leap from non-programmer to App developer, in ways that are just not possible in traditional books."

There are currently three books in this series with plans for more in 2013:

  • Book 1: Diving In
  • Book 2: Flying with Objective-C
  • Book 3: Navigating Xcode

All three books are available for the iPad in the iBookstore, in Kindle format on Amazon, and the first book in the series is also available in paperback on Amazon.
