I have just concluded my first WWDC pilgrimage. Following a January Macworld, I was very excited to in San Francisco for the big event. The excitement for advancements coming in Leopard are far beyond what I recall for Tiger. It seems as if Apple has put many pieces in place with Cocoa, Obj-C, Xcode, and the multitude of enhancements to core apps. It really does keep getting better and better. I have a feeling the recent Ubuntu converts will be renouncing their new love in the spring of 2007.
I made a statement in January that I would be learning Cocoa this year and it's not come to pass. However, I am newly inspired to pick up the thick books and with the help of cocoa dev friends I hope to be coding for Leopard in the coming months. Now if I can just figure out what in Kochrans book I should ignore. Perhaps some personal coaching from Aaron Hillegaas when in Atlanta next is in order.
