I need some direction, and I am very eager to listen to anyone willing to help.
I have been a web developer, trouble shooter, random do this guy, etc... for almost 10 years for the same company.
They now request that I learn How to write iPhone apps. Which after looking into it, requires cocoa, which requires a knowledge of objective based c, which requires a knowledge of c, etc.... You get the point.
I can read html, basic perl and js, but that's about it when it comes to languages.
I started with the book " The C Programming Language " by Brian Kernichan and Dennis Ritchie. I got to the 18th page of the intro and was stumped. So then I started using the tutorials on this site and got stumped with the second section of the Learning C guide where it discusses boolean operators. After two days I think I finally have that part figured out.
Is there anything else that I need to start with besides C?
I was reading Chapter 1: Introduction " "This aspect of C is very widely criticized; it is also used (justifiably) to argue that C is not a good teaching language."
So I am started to wonder if I need to step back even further than C?
I would learn to write for my own personal reasons, but not it is required of my job.
Can anyone help point me in the right direction?
