Control Fun

I managed to get some bandwidth this Memorial Day Weekend to advance on my iPhone programming lessons. You’d think that I should spend my time enjoying the nice weather here in the Bay Area during this long weekend (which I did a little yesterday), but actually, this is what I really wanted to do now that I finally have some free time away from work.

Here’s a screenshot of the exercise on the basic iPhone controls. It was sort of tedious to go back and forth on the book and get all the code and settings right, but I’m starting to get how it all works, at least on the interface side. Pretty soon, I can make something practical!

Objective-C is pretty different from JavaScript or PHP, so it’s sort of a steeper learning curve, especially when I haven’t touched the stuff in the past month. But I have been watching iTunes U podcasts on programming methodology, so it’s not like I’m completely out of the loop.
