When getting started with Objective-C and iOS development one of the first things your going to need to do is to learn how to enter code, build it, edit it and run it from within Xcode. In today’s post, we’ll take a step-by-step walk-through of this process and create our first Objective-C application.
There are four fundamental stages or processes that you will go through during the creation of any Objective-C or iOS application: Editing, Compiling, Linking and Executing. In today’s post we take a closer look at each of these phases and start to establish a basic software development vocabulary that we can build on in future posts.
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.
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.
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.
