    I'd really like to start developing tweaks, does anyone else develop tweaks? Would love some advice if you do!

    I assume you know how to write programs in either Swift or Objective C, so the next logical step would be to start looking into Cydia Substrate (formerly MobileSubstrate; I didn't realize the name had changed. That should give you an idea of how up to date I am with the jailbreak scene).

    I've actually never touched Swift or Objective C so I'm guessing that's where I should start?

    Yeah starting with Swift or Objective C would be were you should start. If you already know an object oriented language (like Java or Python) then I suggest watching AppleProgramming's tutorials on Objective C. But if you haven't done an object oriented language then I suggest watching his Beginner C Tutorials.

    If you do watch the beginner C tutorials then you can go straight into the Objective C tutorials. There will be a very slight overlap during the beginning of the Obj-C tutorials, but it isn't terribly slow getting into.

    Ok, next logical question, how are your general programming skills?

    Define basic? Either way, I would focus on getting your programming skills down first then. At one point I was thinking about doing a multi-post "How to program" segment on the FP. I'm not sure how popular it would be though. Unfortunately it wouldn't be in Objective C or Swift (probably Python or C++).
