So I finally got an iPhone and decided right away that I’d like to jump in and try my hand at doing a little dev work. I’ve looked around a bit on Amazon and a few other places trying to read up on customer reviews, ratings, etc, but I wanted to see if I could reach out to anyone that might be reading my blog and get your thoughts as well. I’ve looked a little at the iPhone Dev Center and the iPhone Developer Program but I know that sometimes people know of better places to get started. Also, is it mandatory/necessary/worth it to pay to join the program?
Before anyone asks, I’ll go ahead and answer what I assume will be the first question asked: “What’s your development background, Jason?”
Well, I learned to program in Flash. I’ve been working with ActionScript for just over 10 years now and I’ve touched on a couple of other things like Java and PHP in the past. I understand both procedural and object oriented programming and I feel like I would just need to learn the syntax when it comes to Objective-C.
Thanks for your thoughts!
