EDIT: Whoever moved this to programming section thankyou, I meant to post it there, I thought I was on that forum when I posted it ! Didnt even notice it was in apps Hey, Firstly sorry if you think this topic has been raised lots before, but I couldn't find much about it, and if you don't have anything useful to say here, then press the back button Anyway as background, Im in high school and want to learn to program. i have taken advice from these forums before and learnt the very simple basics of C, not in detail. Then I moved onto objective C, and started reading a book (programming in objective C) about it. I got only a few chapters in, and then i had no time to carry on learning because of school work. Wanting to carry on learning now, I got a book Learn Objective C on the Mac, because I learnt the basics of C from the other book in this series, and found it very simple, and clearly laid out for me. In just one night tonight, I have revised what I knew, and learnt more. Im still just begining though. I know concepts of OOP, how to use BOOL simply, NSLog and simple stuff and other basic stuff like that. Now, what I would like to ask you I know you may say it depends on the person/their motivation determination etc, but as a rough guide, how long should it take me to learn it enough to venture into making an App. Obviously I know I cannot learn the WHOLE of Objective C, as thats nearly impossible. Perhaps you could say how long it took you to start from scratch to making an app (and what the app was). Any information/help is useful to me, I would really like to learn this, and seen as Im on school break for the next 3 weeks, now would be an ideal time to get stuck into it. TY!! PS. Its made me realize how difficult it is, and often now donate to apps, rather than geting free/trial/torrented versions!
