    Making FrontEnd's on OS X...

    I want to create a FrontEnd for OS X. I don' t know anything about programming and making applications. I just downloaded realbasic. Is that the kind of program im going to need? I wanted to make something similar to the C-Car Project. What software do i need to make applications? I know it won't be easy but im willing to learn everything i need to know. Thanks

    No. Use Objective-C. It comes for free with OSX. Just have to install it and use the IDE that Apple provides, called "XCODE".

    Learn the following:

    1. How to code in Objective-C
    2. Cocoa frameworks for OS X.

    You will find a lot of good documentation on Apple Web Site
    http://developer.apple.com/
    You can look at everything and you can become an Apple Developer for free.
    All the program you need are free and are on the Mac OS X install DVD.
    There are also many tutorials and sample code.
    Help me keep my web site up to date.

    I have "Programming in Objective-C" from O'Reilly and "Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X" from Hillegass. They're both pretty good.

    Plus the docs on the Apple developer site are quite good.
