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.
