One of the most useful classes I took was an assembly language course. Not that I ever programmed in assembly again but it really helps you understand what is going on in the processor.If you followed Apples WWDC videos you will learn that object oriented programming is an old mans approach. Maybe not punch card old but it is a technology that isn't always the best choice. Try out the protocol oriented programming video. There are other efforts afoot to displace...
I don't like Objective C at all and more so I find the SDK strange and obtuse.Objective C is fairly easy to understand as it is a minor extension of C. It is how they use it in the SDK that I find problematic. The only thing you can do is find a good book and try to ignore the practices seen on other systems.Swift can be useful to an extent without a strong background in Objective C. With each revision it has become more independent than previous version. However it...
Safari page reloads are killing me here!This is the second attempt but to make it short and sweet I have to say I agree.Beyond that the indications are that this course requires that the student have a background in object oriented programming. I take this to mean a prior comp-sci type class. The people at Apple must be grossly out of touch if they think that the majority of high schools have the resources to pull this off.In the end I suspect this course will be used in...
The first part that had me laughing was the bit about "High School iOS instructors". What are we going to see next high school courses for banking, mortuary services, bridge engineering, or some other occupation normally requiring extensive post secondary education. The whole article is a bit surreal.As for your comment, most high schools don't have a computer science program worth a damn. Even the ones that do try would hardly prepare a student for Swift and iOS. ...
I'm not sure about the destroying apart of your equation as the competition is the entire watch industry. However you can make a reasonable bet that every executive at every watch manufacture on the planet is keeping a very very close eye on Apples Watch roll out. A roll out it is too, as they have yet to reach full production capacity.I don't see this as creating a new market, rather I see it as evolving a very old market. The evolution is adding features to a time...
I expect something better than complete ignorance. This is probably why I gave up on network news a long time ago.Conservative doesn't have to mean ignorance and frankly we see as much ignorance from the liberal media. The problem is the transparently biased reporting that seems to have as its agenda to damage Apple in anyway they can. Apple does bad things and frankly screws up from time to time, when it does the facts are good enough. Besides super woman Taylor...
A normal watch doesn't do much but people still use them.Nope! The iPad is a unique device that has its own niche in the marketplace. IPad is orders of magnitude more useful than any other device for those niche uses.Hell there was a time when I got everything done on a PC running NT with smart phones unheard of. The fact is I get different things done with my iPad. It is an ideal device for travel. A lot of that has to do with its size with the screen being big...
Attended and graduated are two different things. That beings said many American colleges have huge ethical problems graduating people that shouldn't. Further many professors are under a lot of pressure to be politically correct and support the fascist administration in Washington. So don't assume that GW is free to offer diplomas in a ethical way.Frankly liberalism has made college diplomas about as valuable as a high school diploma these years. The pressure to...
To deny the truth is perhaps the greatest mistake a populace can make. Using your logic the flag of the United States should be banded in England. I'm a strong believer in the idea that trying to make things invisible just increases people's desire to associate with that which we try to hide.You need to realize these people aren't examples of intelligent and well developed beings take the flag away and they will come up with other symbols to rally around in public. ...
Any policy that allows a group or single individual so much influence is nonsense. The reality is somebody somewhere will get their shorts in a bunch over things the rest of us would not bother with. It is a significant issue in this country right now, individuals can set policy with out the general approval of the populace.
