Designing iPhone apps

  1. Sep 13, 2011 #1
    Hi all,

    I've applied to several UROP (Undergrad Research Opportunity Program) projects and I've gotten accepted to four, and one of them involves designing iPhone apps.

    The problem is... I've never programmed in Objective C, but I do know a fair amount of C++ (very basic OOP skills). Is it possible to learn Objective C and be productive in this project within a short time, or should I just pick a different project?

    Sure, it's possible. If all you know is a little C++, then maybe it would be more difficult, but in general someone who knows C++ well can pick up most other languages easily. Sounds like a funny research project though.

    Thanks for the reply - but why is it "funny"?

    Are you in physics? I just can't picture a research project that would involve designing iphone apps

    JawiB - do you mind if I send you a PM of the description of the project, and you can give me your opinion about it?

    If you want. It might be more beneficial if you posted it in the open so that I'm not the only possible opinion you'll get ;)
