    I have some questions about Xcode, I am new at programing and when I say new I mean learning by myself to program so I really don't know what Xcode can or can't do.
    so what I want to do ( I don't really need a code just need to know if it is possible to do and what I need) is create an ios app for my school the thing is that I may need to put security to the app like user and password created by the admin it can be general like one for students, one for teachers, and one for parents.
    The next question is what framework should I use for daly feed like news, I was thinking a RSS framework but if there is a better one I appreciated to know about it.

    Thanks for helping me, I am looking forward to help anyone back when I get better in this.

    P.S. sorry for the bad spelling English isn't my native langue, so laugh about the bad spelling and grammar ;)

    If you are getting started, try looking at the Cocoa FAQ. There you will find resources about almost anything you may want to know about Xcode, Objective-C, and Cocoa.

    Good Luck! :)

    Xcode is an IDE, not a language nor a framework of any kind.

    Although Xcode is an IDE, it also is currently the only convenient way to get the current command-line Objective C (and C/C++) compilers and dev tools for a Mac, even if you never edit or build using the IDE (although you may have to run Xcode once to download those tools onto your Mac). But after you download the fake gcc link to cfront, and all the stuff behind that, you can pretty much ignore Xcode, and pretend you are using a TTY logged into a remote BSD/*nix box for your class programming exercises in C or C++, etc.
