The other day, I finally delved into iPhone development. I battled with getting to grips with the idiosyncrasies of Mac OS X, XCode alone, and then there’s the very alien approach to programming that Objective C and developing for the iPhone in general brings to the table.
I must be honest, the whole process of learning how to develop for the iPhone which was a humbling experience but a good one none the less.
For 2 days, I pretty much learnt OS X, Xcode, Objective C and iPhone development from scratch and I came up with an application that has RSS aggregation and ties into a project website I’ve been working on to pull data from a server.
So far, I’ve learnt to the navigation bar, toolbar, searchbar, xml parsing, grabbing data using the connection classes and so on, so forth.
