Re: iPhone App Development Requirements?
Yeah, aside form the commercial aspect, to be honest, I've always wanted to be able to apply my programming skills to create my own software on my iPhone (even in the sense of making personal apps that do the stuff I wanted it to do). I am already extremely good at programming using Microsoft technologies, and have made all sorts of fun little apps for myself that do all sorts of useful things. But the technology changes, and skills always need updating from time to time. However, I feel that alot of what used to be good about Microsoft is quickly disappearing and being dumbed down, so being as I'm due for a skill update sometime soon anyway and am going to have to relearn a programming language from the ground up anyway, then why not just learn a language that works on a device that I actually want to use! lol. I'm actually quite excited about the prospect of being able to make custom made stuff for a mobile device, as that in itself has endless advantages and possibilities. Would mean of course that I'd have to go for the enterprise licence rather than the standard one (as I'm not really sure that having apps just made for me are really appropriate for the app store,) but even that license is pretty reasonably proceed compared to what it used to cost me to learn languages in .Net (literally used to cost thousands) so hearing that even the developers license was under 300 dollars per year is definitely music to my ears! Just wish I knew some of the finer points about eligibility in regards to the business id side of things,as that's really the only thing that's holding me up from just signing up already. But the moment I know how it works, I'll be there like a shot!
