So one of the things I’ve been trying to accomplish in my free time for the past few months has been learning to program my iMac. I’m capable of writing a script, a VB program, and I understand (most) basic Object-Oriented Programming concepts, but for some reason, Cocoa & Objective C are very hard to understand.
Topping it off, all of the books out there now are based around XCode 2, not the new XCode 3 that came with Leopard. XCode 3 changes some of the concepts that are used time and again throughout your development process: things like instantiating classes within Interface Builder. They’re all things that, given time, you figure out…but it’s just annoying enough to cause problems when going through a programming book for the first time.
This blog entry does a really good job of stepping through a basic program in XCode 3, using Cocoa & Objective C concepts.
