Default Beginning Software Programmer

I am looking to start computer software and learning about system like objective c and xcode. Where would be a good place to start for me?

Hey,

I find that almost ALL languages are easiest to learn when you have a project in mind that you'd like to complete.

ie I learnt / am still learning objective C as I wanted to design an iPad app that I could use to make sound samples etc.

Then begins the process or using common sense, Google and Youtube to achieve the goals you want.

Apple's Dev centre also has a very good library of content for learning.

One thing I will say is that learning this way may be easier but probably is the most complete learning method, for example I could program you just about anything in C# .net but ask me to define a property, method or instance and I wouldn't be able to tell you because I've never learnt that, I use them all the time but I don't know the terminology for them.

Which is why I suck at development tests unless they say create me "this" in which case i'll be fine.

Added and highlighted the word "NOT".

in probably not the most complete method for learning.
