On May 15, 2012 Jeff Atwood (co-founder of Stack Overflow) published a blog post titled “Please Don’t Learn to Code” in response to Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s resolution to learn how to code in 2012. In that post he argues against “learning to code just for the sake of learning how to code,” a sentiment that sparked an active online debate. This book is a compilation of several different perspectives on that debate. Should programming be taught to every student as part of their core curriculum, similar to mathematics, reading, and writing? Should every working professional take time to learn a programming language, even if their profession isn’t obviously related to technology? Those are questions we each ultimately need to answer for ourselves. But for anyone who does decide to learn programming, there’s an ever-growing collection of free online resources designed to teach programming concepts and to walk newcomers through their first projects. These are exciting times! We hope you enjoy this compilation. -The Hyperink Team

Is it possible for JavaScript programmers to learn Apple's iOS 4 SDK and live to tell the tale? Technology guru Danny Goodman did, and with this book he leaves a well-marked trail for you to follow. An authority on JavaScript since its inception, Goodman understands the challenges you might face in creating native iOS apps with this SDK, and introduces Xcode, Objective-C, and Cocoa Touch in a context you'll readily understand. Why bother with the SDK when you can simply build web apps for Apple's iOS devices? Web apps can't access an iPhone's music library, camera, or iOS system software for maps, audio, and more. Nor can you sell web apps in the App Store. If you want to take full advantage of the iPhone and iPad, iOS 4 SDK is your tool -- and this is your book. Includes full coverage of iOS SDK 4.2. Learn the distinction between web app and iOS native app programming Create a workbench app to test code snippets throughout the learning process Get a structural view of an iOS app, and compare the process of building objects in Objective-C versus JavaScipt Discover how your code launches iOS apps and makes them user-ready Learn about iOS memory management details that are different from JavaScript, including pointers and data types Use Objective-C and Cocoa Touch to implement common JavaScript tasks
