I mentioned that you don't have to have programming experience coming into this course. But I want to make sure that you come in with a few essential skills. First, you'll need the right setup on your computer. You'll need Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later so you have the Mac App Store on your machine. I do recommend that you have 10.8 or later because your screen will better match mine as you're following along with the course. You'll also need a standard iTunes Store account for downloading Xcode.
In addition to having the right tools, you'll also have to have some important skills in order to follow along with this course. First, you'll have to have basic computer skills, so you'll have to know how to use a keyboard and a mouse, and have a general familiarity with Mac OS X. And that is how to navigate the file system. How to open files and folders. How to find files and folders as well. And, how to copy and paste text. Since we're going to be working the text a lot as we're writing a lot of code, being able to copy and paste and select different parts of text is an important skill to have.
But other than that, I don't expect you to have any programming background at all. As long as you have the basic computer skills and the right tools, you can build the app that we're going to build in this course.
