New to mobile development

Posted 30 December 2012 - 04:58 PM

I am currently a university student looking to expand my knowledge of programming. I currently know the basics of C# and java (formatting, loops, arrays, linked list, searching, sorting) i know the basics and have built codes of up to 500 lines. I am now looking to start mobile development in order increase my chance of getting a co-op job, but do not know where to start, i have a pc (not mac), I know that the two popular ones are anroid and iphone programming, and iphone programming is probably the better way to go to learn this stuff right, but you need a mac computer (I have one but it doesnt have a harddrive, im not 100% sure if you need a mac to do it or not but would rather use pc). Is there a book that teaches mobile development step by step with examples using java or c# (preferably c#, but java is okay too) or any online resources such as youtube, or something on this website to get me started, or an online course? Any reccommendations on how to approach this all? Thank you very much for your help

Why don't you have a look at the tutorials page?

PC or Mac is not relevant; you can develop on either. You might want to buy a phone though..

Apple's development environment is called XCode, while its only made for Mac its possible to get it running on an emulated PC. However, you must have a Mac if you want too publish to the iphone app store. Xcode is great, but objective-c sucks balls...
