This book is awesome. I could follow until the end and publish my first mobile app on Google PlayStore and on Apple TestFlight (pre-AppStore). However, chapter 1 “how to install the IDE” is a bit skinny and I had to struggle a bit. To help some beginners, I made this series of 3 articles on Medium to hand-hold beginners. I tested it on a clean fresh installed macOS 12.3.1 and a Mac with ARM64 chip.
Hope it helps.
