Losing Sight of Goals

It seems over the past week I’ve taken a bit of a back seat on learning C and doing my development exercises.  For a while there I was on a roll– I was reading the books and studying, learning the API’s and other debugging tools.  Most importantly, I was starting to create my own exercises and coming up with solutions.

I received some contact from Seattle U on the status of my application earlier this week.  I figure I should get back to it.  So after taking a week off, I’m trying to get back on track.

For most of my recent learning I’ve leveraged Apress’ really awesome set of C/Obj-C/Cocoa development titles.  The so-called “fruit books”, each title features a different citrus fruit on its cover.  They offer a disounted e-book for each title on a limited time offer.  I don’t need more digital textbooks so I stick with the physical copies.  I highly recommend them for anyone doing Obj-C development on the Mac.  They are very clear, lots of source code (free I might add) and they dovetail very effectively into a cohesive set.

I should head back to it.  Maybe my next post will involve my bubble sort app that I’m writing.
