I am trying to get back into programming and I quite like the idea of crafting a simple little app for my son. Trouble is I feel as though I am being stifled by having to not only learn a new programming language (Objective C) but also the Xcode environment as well. I should mention I have a fair amount of experience in programming although this was many (22 yrs) ago so was mainly Quick Basic and Turbo Pascal. In those days the editors were very simple and it was all about the code - when I load up Xcode it seems the code is hidden behind a very confusing and complicated environment. I seem to be held up learning the code because I have to fight through the environment and I can't learn the environment without writing code! catch 22! Tell me it gets easier!
