    Hello all!

    I want to begin creating some applications for the iPhone. I am a computer science major and I know Java pretty well and a bit of C as well. I am aware that in order to create some apps, one must learn Cocoa, and in order to learn Cocoa for Mac OS X, one must know Objective-C.

    I was wondering how all of you began your adventure to create an app. Did you read a book, become fluent, and just begin creating apps? Did you work with the SDK and just learn it from fooling around with it?

    I have many good ideas I'd like to implement into the new iPhone App Store, but I need to start learning the languages first. What do you recommend, and how did you go by learning and creating one?

    Thanks for all the advice and posts you guys make. It inspires me to continue learning as much as possible.

    Then you should do just fine.

    It just requires getting used to the syntax. After that, everything's remotely the same.

    The documentation in Xcode is excellent. There's even a "first application" tutorial in Xcode for the iPhone.

    I just started doing it. Using Apple's sample code and documentation for the most part, some help from various forums also helped move me along. Right now I have 7 apps in the store, 1 in review. Prior to this I only had BASIC and Lua knowledge.
