Hey all! I'm one of those guys who has dabbled in development (mainly web) on and off but never really became a hard-core developer. I am a mobile UX designer, so I know oodles about designing for mobile (iOS, Android and Windows). I've dabbled in iOS development, but there's a lot of backstory that I'm not familiar with (read: I don't know Objective C, C#, C, or any other language related to iOS development), so it's hard to keep going with some of these courses. Also, time is a huge factor but that's on me to dedicate myself to getting through the course. Looking forward to Paul's series and will hopefully get this "mobile development" thing under my belt by summer!
I want to be comfortable with the language of iOS. I want to understand, from a high level, the organization of the language and how to use Object Oriented Programming. Syntax comes with repetition, so I've got to buckle down and learn it.
One of my goals is to make my own animated story apps for kids. I'm an illustrator and have a lot of ideas for interactive or just alternative stories. Would love to have a series in the store.
