Just grabbed a floater copy of the iPhone SDK and I just wrote my first application. It does nothing, but I’m so proud of myself. It’s almost as if I’m entering a brave new world where I never failed CS 101 and had to end up in Information Systems.
The SDK is fairly easy to install and run. Obviously I’m going to need to figure out what the heck everything is doing and how to handle touches and everything else, but it’s a fully-featured IDE with Aspen simulator and it makes me feel kind of funny inside to compile and run and iPhone app all by my lonesome. Good times.
