Intellisense, I miss you

2010-04-07 Day 2
I attended an internal presentation today on IPhone development that made everything look easy, sitting down myself to do the same thing, not so easy :) I find that I'm really missing intellisense, and the weird combinations of code I have to write myself in order to automatically bind with the interface builder seems unintuitive right now. Visual Studio, you drag, you drop, you double click and write some custom code, then you compile.... and it works.

In XCode you drag, you drop... then you stop because xcode will only let you link to existing properties and methods so you have to go back to the web and find out how to make those before continuing.


  1. While writing code, you should try to press Escape ;)
    ...and never forget: "Think Different"

  2. I think this is a tough transition for people familiar with the .Net Visual Studio environments. It's different, some people will like it, some won't.

  3. Very different indeed. The growing pains hurt, but I think it's a good kind of hurt :)
