I try to answer this question:
These is never any true way, people always waste their time to try to figure out what is the true/easy/great/fun way to learn something.
but truth is, before you start, you will never get any real information, and solid ground of any real thing.
You always can start with some normal/not so good way, but as soon as you start, you will be able to figure out what is the real problem, what is the true question. And, you will be able to figure out what is better way, and keep moving, keep turing, and find your own way and the true way for you.
This is my answer to this question:
- In the Iron Age, you want to make something great, you need to learn how to forge iron.
- In the steam age, you want to make something great, you need to learn mechanical.
- Now, you want to make something great, you need to learn how to code, or you need to find a great partner who knows how to code.
This is my answer of this question:If you are a programmer, did you learn to code in college, or by yourself?
- As you know, I am a Chinese.
- I started learning how to code in 1992, when I was 13, my parents brought me a game-computer (compatibles of Nintendo FC, with a keyboard, and some typing study application etc.). This game-computer have a Basic on it, so I learn how to code in Basic from the manual of this game-computer.
- When I was 15, I went to high school, our school started a computer lesson. Our math teacher learned how to use computer and Dos, WordStar, GW-Basic, and taught us. These is a very fancy computer classroom in our school. We went to this computer classroom every week, this is the only chance we can touch these 8086 PCs. The only 286 PC was used by our teacher, and our PCs had black-white screen, the teacher’s 286 PC had a colour screen. And we only had one year computer lesson in high school. I and one of my good friend, we were really in coding, so we brought a book of C, and a book of Borland C++, but all 3 years in high school, We didn’t have chance to see Turbo-C and Borland C++.
- When I was 18, just before I went to college, my parents brought me a 586 PC, and the sales of the computer gave me some pirated CD, include Delphi, VB, VC, C++ builder etc, and some porn pics. And that summer, I learned how to use these development tools day and night.
- When I finally went to college, We only have lessons about C, dbase, and foxpro. I really didn’t like these lessons, I think you will understand, and these teachers who taught these lessons, they didn’t know more than me…
- So, I think can say, I mainly learn everything I need by myself.
My answer of this question:
1. Interface builder and storyboard is very useful. I think build any
sophisticated app need a design-implement-test-imporve loop, and
need programmer and design have a very frequently communication.
Please don’t think Interface builder and storyboard is a program
tools, I think they are a very good prototype tools, will help you
and your team have a great communication.
2. Core data modeler is a modeler, it means it is a data structure
3. And I really think even a one man team need some team work skill,
and need the design-implement-test-imporve loop.
I found this question in quora, this is my answer:
- I don’t think there is any language better than others. We use language as a communicate tool, and every language is a culture, learn a language is learn how to communicate with the people use this language and learn their culture.
- Mandarin and Cantonese share a lot of in common. They both use “汉字”.
- Mandarin and Cantonese have a lot of different. They have different pronunciations, and Cantonese have some special “汉字”.
- Use Mandarin you can easy communicate with the people of mainland of China, use Cantonese you can easy communicate withe people of HonKong and Guangdong province.
- A lot of HongKong TV series (港剧) and Cantonese song are very popular in mainland of China. You will find HongKong TV series is better than mainland TV series (大陆剧). Watch a lot TV, can help you learn and fall in love with a language.
Today I want make a card like tableview app, I find out that when you edit cell prototype in Interface builder, after you switch to other interface, contents in cell prototype will miss…
So I only can init the cell with codes…
Somebody ask this question at quora, this is my answer:
- I think Apple have an iOS first strategy, because iPhone is more profitable than Mac, and because iOS is more new and modern than Mac OS X.
- I think iOS need flatten, because new model of hardware and Apple watch need resolution flexibility, flatten can help it. Mac OS X doesn’t need flatten to do anything, flatten Max OS X just because Apple want to unify these two OS’s UI.
