I develope mobile software.

I grew up with tons of game programming books, but when I realized game programming is about "forging the way", I learned what it's like to get my hands dirty.

And I never went back.

Also, I'm always looking for indie artists. I code fast, so I need to make friends with more artists :D heh

comment Questions to ask to ensure someone understands programming? (and iOS)
Ah yes, definitely I'm the worst. I throw people into effective gauntlets and expect self-motivation to pull them through. It only works on people who won't need it... But I've also held his hand, gone through sample projects with him, scheduled times, then I ask him to move on on his own and a week later, all he did was edit some variable, without understanding why it was put in the function. I've done this over and over. I think I'll take your advice and find another tutor, there's more problems I'm ill-prepared for, but he and I are good friends still, no worries on that.

Bart, actually yes, I've seen symptoms and honestly I see my past-self in him. I taught myself drawing and realized rules are just made up, it freed me from a lot of my autistic thoughts. Right and wrong are meaningless, but he still thinks there's a wrong way to express creativity in certain arts. Anyway yes, I asked here because of that, figured we'd be able to relate more (as a group)

Alright, so next time I don't upvote good answers if they're off-topic...

comment What is expected of an intern iOS SDK programmer from self-taught arena?
I am asking, in short, "What sample programs are good for a self-taught programmer" and while many of these principles do apply, this question is very much NOT duplicated. Although, those links do help :D. Also, the person I asked this for can't form questions. Instead of breaking them into pieces of his task, he writes "x y for a program that does z and I'm..." since he was punished for not being specific as a kid. Any resources for helping to simplify programming questions? He is nowhere near a school nor age for a school, unsure why everyone says "college" when I said self-taught.

Awesome, thanks for the insight! I never thought of the "Sample" inspirational ones. I personally worked on Mystery Case Files games animations and UI, and apple features a slide show every week instead of something innovating. Path clones are always a hit... so I never really require interest in those things.
