I'm looking for some help with the following. This will be a very general and vague question but i would appreciate people's input.
I'm currently learning Objective-C with the idea of developing applications for iOS. So far it is going ok - i'm obviously starting at the bottom, "Hello World", adding two numbers etc. Next i'm going to be making my own calculator.
I guess i'm looking for people to tell me what i need to know! Are there recurring actions that come up when developing an application? If so, i want to practice these. For instance, is setting up some kind of user information database a common action in application development? I don't know how to this but if it is common i want to know how.
I don't know if i'm making myself clear, but i'm looking for the real basics here. "Often when developing an application, people will need to do x, y, z so that they can do a, b and c".
I'd really appreciate any help with this, as vague and simple as it may seem.
