just ordered my first apple!! a mac book pro that cost way too much , but it so pretty its worth it. anyway, i generally work on databases in sql server, and i can do a bit of .NET development, but if you notice its all microsoft technologies. I want to give dev on the apple a go, be it in objective c or just apple script. i believe apple script has access to all API's now so would that be a good route to begin? what books and software can you recommend for an absolute beginner to apple programming?
