the love/hate relationship with sourceforge

Now, I love sourceforge, but it’s becoming my opinion that having actual files associated with a project should be a requirement for starting a project on sourceforge.

Mush

My brain feels like a melted-rehardened-baked-broiled-deepfried piece of mush thanks to Stephen Kochan and Aaron Hillegass’ objective-c and Cocoa programming bootcamp at Big Nerd Ranch. I’m sitting at the chili’s at the atlanta airport terminal A, and I’m trying to imagine what it will be like to wake up in my own bed and not get a big drink from the firehose of obj-c/cocoa. The past week feels like 3 weeks to me. Every day was so jam packed with useful information that it’s going to take a few days of doing nothing but going through the books and example code just to come up with the right questions to ask the class alumni email list. I would absolutely recommend this class from Big Nerd Ranch. Both instructors are great, the material is useful, the accomodations are good, my classmates were insightful and interesting, and I think you’ll walk away a smarter person.
I by no means would call myself an expert cocoa programmer at this point. I have a good jump start, but a long road ahead. This instruction will help me get a better idea of what I can do, and has helped me understand the syntax and methods of programming in objective c and cocoa…. But omg, so… Much… Information….
As with the PHP Bootcamp at big nerd ranch, I would absolutle steer you to them. I feel like it’s extremely helpful to get guided demos from great instructors, and then have a full instructional book to take home to review. Big Nerd Ranch delived the goods again.
.. Just be ready for that firehose. :)

xcode: tab through arguments for autocompleted calls

when in xcode, you can start typing just about anything and hit escape or f5 to get it to give you a list of suggested things to automatically complete what you started typing.

Once you select one of the items in the list, hit control-/ to go forward, control-shift-/ to go backwards through the list of arguments… handy!

obj-c classes at big nerd ranch

Good stuff, just a lot of it to cram into 2 days. Hopefully some music and graphics apps coming at some point in the future from me. QTTurntable 2.0? Maybe!
