I am alone right now, as if going through uncharted wilderness. I am not sure about any local groups for Mac programming, which would be fantastic.
I have decided to go through the Apress (http://www.apress.com) books on programming for the Mac: C, Objective-C, Cocoa and for iPhone/iPod Touch.
I had some idea for an iPhone app and found these books seemed to be aimed at the beginner.
The only person I know of in MacGroup that may be into programing would be the legendary Paul Reznick.
"portions of todays programming are reproduced by means of electrical transcriptions or tape recordings."
"I was exposed to the GUI and have been stuck ever since!"
"Remember.. Under our clothes...we are all naked"
Legendary??? Not quite sure how to take that! :-P
All the books on Mac programming seem to be aimed at the beginner, but that doesn't mean the seasoned programmer won't gain anything out of them. If anything, it just means you'll go through the examples that much quicker.
Even if you do have experience in OOP, Objective C and the Cocoa API's will take some getting used to and therefore, you'll basically be a "beginner" anyway. About the only thing you can do is pick up a copy of the book that most appeals to you and work through the examples one by one.
