Feel free to check out my own personal take on Erlang. [Ed note: Are any of you HF readers programming in Erlang?
Even if not, do you agree with Paul--if so, what is Well, i OS5 is out, and that means that Head First i Phone and i Pad Development officially needs some tweaking to work with the latest tools!
Primarily Apple apps are leveraging this ability to support synching at this point, with Photo Stream, i Message, and i Tunes purchasing support, among others, but as time moves on that will expand.
Newsstand support has the potential to change the publishing industry by providing a centralized place on the device and method of updating subscription type materials.
I wasn't programming for the sake of programming; I was programming because I had to. The author of the article, Michael Connors, then sent me an email together with a plea.
What if you want to use the book with the new Xcode?
I took this as a sign that my days of programming Ruby were numbered and that somebody, somewhere was trying to tell me something...
OK, I'll admit that some of that story is not totally true. What actually happened was that it was my turn to cook dinner and, as Cooking for Geeks had yet to be written, I didn't yet understand how important it is to actually pay attention while cooking. Not paying attention, I'd switched on the wrong heat-ring on the stove-top and placed my book directly on top! But, I took this as a sign that my days of programming Ruby were numbered and that somebody, somewhere was trying to tell me something...
I'm also not writing the next-best killer Erlang application.
And, I've not got some darn-hard problem that needs solving in Erlang.
