    I am in my first year of a computer science program at SFSU, and until now have been trudging through using g++ in the Unix command line. I have installed Xcode 3, to see if it can make the process of coding a little bit easier, but is has opened its own can of worms; to much information, to the point of being overwhelmed. I have read quite a few tutorials and references for Xcode, including trying to get through Xcode 3's own documentation, but little is bridging the gap, and giving me a sense of comfort/knowledge that I have much sense of what is going on. I would love to scratch the surface of Xcode, and grow with it as I expand my programming skills, but at this time, it seems daunting.

    I have also gone through the books & reviews on the subject at Amazon, but again find little for those of us truly near the beginning. I'm not a developer, would not consider myself a programmer (perhaps someday), but someone who is looking for a good place to start.

    I would appreciate any suggestions and/or recommendations.

    Thanks much!

    Skip Xcode for awhile.

    If you really want to learn it, the only way is to read the user manual for it in the Help menu. Tutorials on the net are generally either wrong, out of date, poorly written or don't give enough information.

    Stick to the official documentation and you'll be fine.
