I am a late Adopter, learning to write a iphone app

By now there must be thousands and thousands of iphone app developers together with the news on the “leaked  iphone 4“, I think it is finally time for me to pick up a new hobby.This is not just because that the iphone trend is here to stay but

I had the opportunity to intern with Yahoo! Southeast Asia for a period of 4 months… everyday I learn more & new things about the internet industry, how it changes the way people consume media… online advertising, the development of social media and of course MOBILE development.My interest also starts to grow in this area… maybe I could also explore in writing a iphone app myself even though the industry I think for developers is quite saturated.. And I wonder how difficult would it be for a business student like me to learn to code? “I do have basic excel vba knowledge” but I am not sure it it would be helpful.

I have not idea what programming language should I learn, so I did a search online.And I found this that I would like to share with everyone.

Evan Doll and Alan Cannistraro – iPhone Application Programming – A free iphone programming course by Evan and Alan (from Standford University) on itune.

I am also planning to learn Andriod too because they have outsell iphone in US, maybe existing Iphone users are bored and are seeking alternatives. But in Singapore I believe Iphone still have a bigger share because every time I broad a train, I always see 4~5 passengers around me holding on to their Iphone.

Yeap… I hope to have my own app soon on apple app store.

  1. Hi Lee Tuck,

    Yes, I agree with you. Focus on iPhone programming first, it still is a bigger market than Android worldwide. Xcode is also such an intuitive software to program on.

    I’m wondering if you could point me to iPhone programming groups in Singapore? I am not a programmer, but being an Apple Fan, I am keen on meeting people who push the technology to its limit. Working for an Apple distributor, I may also be able to help fulfill Mac requirements of the group at a promotional price.

    Cheers and looking forward to your app soon,
    Lani
