Targeted to high schoolers who are not initiated well into computer programming, this book aims to teach you how to develop iPhone apps. iPhone development isn’t that hard with all the resources and help readily available on the Internet. Though development still requires creativity and drive to come up with a great idea, this book will provide the rest: tools and techniques that are non-traditional to get you jump-started on the art and science of building and publishing iPhone apps.
The 17 year old iPhone app developer and author of this book developed and published multiple iPhone apps such as Upgur, Should I Wear Pants Today and BCP Mobile which have a combined total download count of about 100,000. Learn his secrets of developing an iPhone app from scratch, without having to learn Objective-C extensively.
His guerrilla programming method is based on using online resources to help guide the student in their iPhone programming endeavors. It helps to divide a project into a smaller feature set and then to find code snippets online to implement each feature by reusing that code with minor or no change. While that strategy will remain as a standard help, the student will soon graduate into writing their own code from the experience of handling robust code written by experienced programmers.
