Cocoa Programming resources

Posted by: Gargs In: Tech and Culture

I am learning Cocoa programming these days, and am actually picking it up very quickly. As I have mentioned in the past, it reminds me a lot of SmallTalk programming. Below are some sites/resources that I am finding really helpful. I’ll update the list from time to time. COCOABUILDER.COM – A perfect interface to both […]

First the iPod Shuffle, and now a Macbook! Granted, that the shuffle was a raffle prize at work, it still was my first official Apple possession. For the longest time, I imagined myself never ever buying a Mac simply because to me it never appeared as a serious development platform. Having grown up with DOS […]
