This is my first post about this book and so far I have found it really good and I believed I understood most of it to a sufficient degree and was doing the challenges acceptably then it came to the challenge at the end of this chapter. Now I understood essentially what I was supposed to say to make the program run successfully but I didn’t know the words, if that makes sense, so I knew essentially what the answer was but didn’t know the words to answer it with.
I am trying to become an app developer for iPhone/iPad and had never even thought about coding till about 6 months ago then after a while bought this book to see what became of it. I would really like to see this through and become a developer I have an excellent idea for a whole section of the market completely un catered for!
I guess what Im saying is, is having the idea of what needs to go in enough for now and should I trust myself and carry on or should I learn, or already know?, the specific terms to write the code. And if i should know the specific words etc should I be in such a hair wrenching state that I can’t or is there somewhere else I should be looking. Or am i just thick as and should abandon this completely??
Many thanks for all who read and help it is much wanted
