I am not able to get project in chapter-1 for Xcode via
If I download the file from url all the activities mentioned in 3rd edition are already done in the project.
If you'll check out page xxvii in the Introduction, is says:
"We begin by modifying a completed iOS app by pulling code right
from GitHub. While this book is focused on iOS development, part of what we’re hoping to teach is how to use the tools that work not only with iOS development, but with software development in general. So to kick it off, we’re going to drop you into completed code that needs some changes, not starting from scratch."
So, the code is supposed to be like that.
I hope that helps,
