Hey all, please read on, as I would REALLY appreciate your help/ideas/advice. I'm studying computer science, I live in Mexico, and I'm on my first semester in college. I'm currently taking a C Programming class, I know understand the basic concepts of programming (NOT object oriented), for, while, prints and scans, etc. I want to take on iOS programming to start programming an iPad app as soon as possible, now I know this is a long progress it requires patience, time and devotion, and I've done some reading and know I have to learn Object Oriented Programming first in order to learn Objective-C and then actually make apps. I'm just asking for a good way to start programming actually functional apps in the least time possible. If I manage to be a well, not advance, but at least intermediate app programmer in 6 months or less then I might be able to be hired for a project that I'd love to be part of, so I'm getting info from as many sources as I can, and any help, advice would be greatly appreciated. The general idea of my app is one that at start asks for username/password, then validates in a server, after that it displays what other users have done (kind of a social app) and lists some itesm that if the user taps, a new window comes in with specific info about the item, Right now my internet connection is as lousy as anything in the world gets, but next week I'm getting fiber optic installation, until then I can't download the iTunes U Stanford tutorials. Are those even good? Any advice, ideas for the app, or good thoughts greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time, your comments will really make a difference, Alex.
