What it takes to transfer from Microsoft .NET to Apple iOS developer ?
Update 2015: more longer and similar story/explanation found here
So this was me ‘before’ with all my friends: Windows, C#, .NET, Visual Studio, MSDN :
– easy ‘managed’ life,
– can smile and make ceremony
– implicit friends and friends of friends you can’t get rid of them
– shallow water, no deep dive
– few freezes
– slightly detuned, but good enough for many
– moon shots
…and me ‘after’ passing through the fire of iOS, Objective-C, Cocoa Touch, XCode, Documentation, Mac, Certificates, AppStore
– different game, different rules
– lot of explosive material (resources)
– focused, not distracted by ‘friends’
– intelligence and luck needed
– dangerous and too explicit
– very rewarding

“Our first decision was to restructure and refactor code as much as possible into a common software development kit (SDK) platform, all written in C++, and subsequently design a unified multi-sensor and multi-threaded architecture compatible with both Android and iOS. This allowed us to validate all critical sensor processing code on one platform and easily port to another, as well as to provide SDK integration options for a range of partnerships.”
“Mike Lazaridis was at home on his treadmill and watching television when he first saw the Apple iPhone in early 2007. There were a few things he didn’t understand about the product. So, that summer, he pried one open to look inside and was shocked. It was like Apple had stuffed a Mac computer into a cellphone, he thought.
6 years later September 10th: iPhone is featuring an all-new A7 chip, making iPhone 5s the world’s first smartphone with 64-bit desktop-class architecture for blazing fast performance in the palm of your hand.
who is able to stuff a desktop-class software inside the desktop-classs CPU powered smartphone ?
