    Im going to stick at it Im doing various lessons in the book and although I dont understand a lot of the technical words and what they do, I have a very basic understanding of how to use them

    The UI kit bits (dont have a clue what the technical term is) are *really* handy I was so shocked at how expert even a simple table looks without any effort at all!

    The way the table view requests the data from the controller which then grabs the data from the data model is one of the most wonderously elegant things I've ever seen

    I came to cocoa from languages where I was used to doing for row = 1 to 10; column=1 to 10; data[row,column]=blahblah etc.

    I was amazed when the view started asking me for the data at the cells it needed! Of course it's so brilliant because it only needs to ask for the cells that are display or in use at that time, you can have a nice mapping through to the data and so on.

    Only thing you have to concentrate on is making sure that your data access routines are efficient and can deliver the data quickly when asked

    The other mega cool thing is the whole Mac ecosystem. You have these views that work on a desktop macosx system, an iphone and an ipad! I feel microsoft has just missed a huge thing here

    Well I've got a few little ones, hours and the like but when the ipad came out, it offers such a wonderful new size of screen to develop for that I'm pondering the best way to take advantage of it right now

    I've got nothing done on my own app, I'm still going through the lessons in the book I've done a few lessons. This is one of my first apps, which is basically just a little button that you press and the ant appears LOL;
    I know it's not at all useful but the book teaches you to do things like that so you learn the basics.



    I'll be sure to post screen shots when I start the app I'm looking at making, it's going to be a long road, though.
