View Full Version : zero experience, great ideas, need advice ;)

I have zero experience coding for the iPhone or coding anything for that matter, except a little visual basic that I have forgotten from along time ago.

I have some great ideas for applications and games for the iPhone that I feel would be popular/profitable. I just don't know how to get started past the point where I sign up as a developer and have xCode running. Where do I start? What do I need to learn first? I would need to learn the coding aspect and interface design, until people would want to join my team obviously, but I also like to understand everything.

I am a complete blank, however, I am a quick learner and am very eager to start an iPhone development company. If any of you have any advice for to get started i would greatly appreciate it.

I would start by just doing random stuff in Xcode. Get a feel for the program, as you will be doing almost everything with it. After that, probably go and read some of apple's developer documentation. That stuff realllyyyyy helps.

would i need to learn c# first or cocoa or something or can I just jump right into the SDK and start fiddling with it and learn on the go?
