In this post, we’re going to take a step-by-step walkthrough of how to install the Xcode Development tools, an essential pre-requisite for app development on iOS.
The Rise to Dominance of Objective-C and iOS
Today is the last part of a three-part series examining the key languages and technologies that under pin iOS Application Development. In today’s post, we will look at how, from its humble beginnings, Objective-C has risen in popularity, how it was adopted by Apple in its rise to dominance and how it is now central to application development on the iOS platform.
Objective-C: Bringing Object-Orientation to the C Programming Language
Today is the second part of our three-part series examining the history of the key programming languages and technologies that underpin application development on the iOS platform. In today’s post, we’ll look at Objective-C, the primary programming language used to develop iOS applications.
The History of the C Programming Language
Before we move forward it is often useful to look back. Today’s post is the first of a three-part series looking at the history of the major programming languages and technologies that underpin application development on the iOS platform.
