Today was another day filled mostly with work.
When you write code every day, often times, it’s hard to write code for yourself… It’s probably why a project like my recent Flipboard Bible only seems to happen after a vacation break or some time off. There’s always something to code for someone else, so when would I ever have time to code for myself.
Well, that’s one of my many little goals for this year. I want to make more time to learn more about my craft.
So for the last 2 years, I’ve been looking at doing *something* on the iPhone or iPad, other than building webpages compatible with it. I had the dev kit license for awhile 2 years ago, but basically got 1 step past Hello World and stopped. I decided today that I would pick that coding back up, and try to build something I could actually put on the app store.
So far, It’s been rather fun. I was able to get a solid 3 hours into learning and development last night thanks to Amber working late. I now have the ability to make objects move on the screen, put objects on the screen where the screen is tapped, and completely change the scene. Pretty basic stuff, but a step towards what I want to build. I’m not sure if I will get any work in tomorrow on it, since I have church in the evening, but I’m hoping to try to do a little bit every day.
All in all, it was another solid day.
