Would you like to build a custom backend for your iOS app, but you’re not sure how to get started?

You’ll find the solution in Backend Development for iOS Developers.

There are way too many backend services and tutorials out there. 

You don’t want to spend hours trying to understand how to set up Firebase or CloudKit, especially when you have to deal with all of their restrictions. You want to create a backend your way, not through some complicated and headache inducing web interface.

You don’t want to lose a weekend slogging through AWS documentation to figure out which one of their services is right for your app. It is hard to find out clearly what you need when there are a bazillion services for every type of configuration.

You don’t want to read an endless stack of anxiety-inducing blog articles to learn about which programming language to use on the server. You want to create a backend for your app, not read flame posts by a blogger named “c0debr0” arguing how node.js is superior to ruby because it achieved superior performance benchmarks using some special compiler engine.

You just want a clear path to building a solid backend, so that you can focus on building your app.

What if you don’t need to waste all this time?

If only you could have one resource that gave you a step-by-step action plan on how to build a backend for your iOS app. With instructions, code examples, and clear suggestions on the best tools to use.

Enter the Backend Book for iOS Developers.

The Backend Book for iOS Developers will give you a clear path for creating solid, reliable, and secure backends.

By the end of it, you will know how to build and deploy your own backend, from scratch.

What you will learn in this book:

You will learn how to build, test, debug, and deploy your own backend using Python, Flask, and MySQL, Nginx, and Gunicorn.

You will gain the skills to use this stack to build a backend whenever you need one, so you’ll never be dependent on a third-party service.

You will be able to create a backend API and connect it up with your iOS app, without getting stuck or wasting time trying to figure out what tools to use.
