Chapter 2: Appeasing the Tiki Gods - Pg. 13

Chapter 2 Appeasing the Tiki Gods As you're probably well aware, it has become something of a tradition to call the first project in any book on programming "Hello, World." We considered breaking this tradition, but were scared that the tiki gods would inflict some painful retribution on us for such a gross breach of etiquette. So, let's do it by the book, shall we? In this chapter, we're going to use Xcode to create a small iOS application that will display the text "Hello, World!" We'll look at what's involved in creating an iOS application project in Xcode, work through the specifics of using Xcode's Interface Builder to design our application's user interface, and then run our application on the iOS simulator. After that, we'll give our application an icon to make it feel more like a real iOS application. We have a lot to do here, so let's get going.
