iPhone Dev Time
Apple recently released their SDK for the iPhone and iPod Touch and I’m pretty keen to try it out. As a first project I am thinking of trying to write a lightweight port of CRON-o-Meter. Objective-C still looks like gibberish to me. It will take a little while to get used to it — especially since I work heavily in C and Java at my day job. More than anything though, switching to use XCode instead of Eclipse is by far the most painful step for me.
But alas, I need to keep my mind nimble. I don’t want to become one of those old dogs who can’t learn new tricks. I’m already feeling like an old-timer in some ways — becoming obsolete is a big worry of mine. Most of the code I work with at work is old-school, low-level C, so I don’t get a lot of time to play with the shiny new toys the kids these days are playing with. I need to trade off a few evening XBox marathons with a few good hacking sessions.
