So, I know basically nothing about programming — I know my way around html/css, and once upon a time I wrote some BASIC text adventure games on a graphing calculator, but beyond pasting things into html documents or the occasional bumbling hack, I don't have any experience with actual coding. My real interest here is in user interface design, so I think my excitement about the idea of iOS development should be self-explanatory. Can I get some recommendations of books/sites/tutorials that will get me from zero to being able to write some iOS applications? Where should I start? Simple recommendations of what general path I should take would be much appreciated.
In previous questions I've seen people recommend frameworks that let you leverage web technologies to create native apps, such as Sencha
. Would it be advisable to focus on something like this? Or would I find these restrictive if my ultimate goal is to experiment with novel touch interfaces?
As a final note, yes, I am aware this will be a long and difficult process; I'm wiling to put in the work, just looking for suggestions of what path to take from those who've done it before.
