    How about a book on all jiggy codes and lets say we want to create an app, we will start by looking at the book and copy and paste it. If we want to add a text box we would copy and paste. any adjustments we just change the parameters around.
    Unless theres something already out there. Its almost like a "Jiggy for Dummies" kind of thing.

    Jiggy is actually Javascript. So if you know Javascript, you know Jiggy.

    I heard that jiggy will be out, javascript is old, and the new one out is Objective-C or is that same thing as javascript? I bought a book called "programming in Objective C" I feel lost. Is this a good book or is there an easier one out there for me to learn?

    Objective C is different from Jiggy and Javscript dude.

    Objective C is a subset (bascially is) C.

    oh ok. I'm still reading the book. I also have another one called "iPhone Open Application Development" I guess it would've been cheaper to just take the class.

    Iphone Open App Development is a great book, once you understand C and obj-C
    ...and, the 'codes' for jiggy are all taken from the obj-C framework. Some function in jiggy is just an alias for the same function in the cocoa framework

    c# is only similar in concepts. both are OOP object-oriented programming, so they operate on the same principles. I know in C# you must create an interface and and implementation section but they have different nomenclature.

    I took some classes on C# last year, and I think it helped me get into more OOP-style programming, because before I was doing procedural language, like PHP.

    the most confusing thing is getting used to looking at the code. objective-C typically has many square-brackets in the code, they tokenize the objects. Once you get used to this after a while its quite useful.

    and remember, there's no wrong way to write a program, no matter how elite other people think their code is. There's more than a handful of ways to accomplish a single task.

    I found this a good read: http://www.gnustep.org/resources/do...rogrammingManual/manual_toc.html#SEC_Contents
    it's written for a mixed audience, you can learn some basics
