About Me August 2010


Thanks to everyone who dropped by in 2010! In one day yesterday, we had more visitors than in all of August (when I began) combined. Happy coding in the new year!

Get a Copy of Xcode (It’s Free)

Download yourself a copy of Xcode to get started.

  1. Visit the Apple Developer Connection site.
  2. If you already have an account, log in to the iPhone Development Center using the blue buttons near the bottom of the page. Go to step 5.
  3. Register as an iPhone developer. If you plan on selling your apps, register as a standard developer. (It will cost $99 a year. It’s totally worth it). For most people, you can just register as a free developer. The difference (for now) is that the free version does not let you test your apps on device; you’re limited to the Simulator. That’ll work fine for the majority of topics I plan to cover here.
  4. Follow through the steps. They’re pretty self explanatory. Fill in your profile, agree to the agreement, and check your email for a verification code. Congrats—you’re now a registered Apple developer!
  5. Visit the iPhone Dev Center and sign in.
  6. Download the SDK (the link is in the second rectangle on the left, about 2/3 of the way down the page). The latest version as of this writing is iOS SDK 4.0.2. If you have Snow Leopard, download that version. The Leopard version contains a different subset of features.
  7. Install it, and you’re good to go!
