Mac development info (membership required?)
I have a question about Mac development: is it necessary to become a developer
(i.e. pay an annual fee) in order to be able to build and distribute your own
applications to other Mac users? It souldn't be necessary, but for iPhone
development you need to become an "official" developer (about 90$per year?) in
order to receive the certificates that let you install your own application
even onto your USB-attached iPhone.. so, I prefer to ask you experienced users
PS: I'm going to buy my first Mac (an MBP) and I hope I will have time to
develop something in the future, so I'm trying to get some information In
the meanwhile I'm reading Objective-C/Cocoa/Concurrent Programmin Guides, along
with the OSX Snow Leopard Bible which seems to be quite interesting.

You should become an ADC Online (free) member anyway, just so you can download the latest Xcode releases and stuff like that, useful to developers.
As the poster above me said, though - a paid membership is by no means required for Mac development.

You can even mess around with iPhone development for free, the $90 only comes in if and when you want to submit an app to the iPhone App Store. And is essentially the fee to get you a certificate to sign your app with so they know it's from you.
