[programming is: fun!] (5stars)
(tags: iphone, beginners, objective-c, mac programming)


. I had already taken a course on C and read 4 books on it recently,
so I didn't spend much time on how Kochan presented C,
but I was able to follow what he said about obj'c
(I'd spent a bit of time with Apple's doc's previously too
and I've already spent years studying generic obj'oriented design;
but I really appreciated having it all be part of a mac`Cocoa lesson
which is my primary platform of interest ) .
. it was very helpful to spend long hours in a gentle book in the mornings
rather than staring at the fluorescent bulb of the LCD screen .

you'll find the link [examples]
which leads to forums that help the book with discussions and errata .
