Earlier today I presented how to get started in iOS development and compared the code syntax between Objective-C and C#. So far it’s been 2 months since I started learning Xcode and Objective-C. The first few weeks it was difficult and a lot of banging my head trying to understand Objective-C. Now, its slowly becoming second nature and I’m enjoying it more and more making iOS apps.
Once I get a stronger understanding of the foundationg of Objective-C and how to use Xcode, I plan on developing my own iOS app that I’ve had on the back-burner for a few weeks. Stay tune for the details of the app. Also, look forward to more iOS sample apps and my experiences as I learn more and more about iOS development.
For my presentation earlier today, you can grab the slide decks here:
You can grab my outline of notes here:
I will post the sample apps shortly.
The first sample app was a simple Quiz Demo app that showed how to create IBOutlet and Target-Action connections. Also, simple class, method and property declaration. Instatiating NSMutableArrays and adding objets to them. Then looping through the array and assigning the value to a NSString *question variable.
The second sample app was a more realistic app that shows how to hook up a UITableViewController and UINavigationController to a Window. Then population the UITableView with a collection of items from a custom class (Possession). More details to follow.
