Programming Mac OS X with Cocoa for Beginners
Publisher: Wikibooks 2011
This book aims to provide beginners with an introduction to programming Mac OS X with Cocoa, using Xcode, the free developer tools provided with the operating system. Some knowledge of another programming language, preferably C, is assumed. The main guide is aimed at users of Mac OS X 10.3 or 10.4, but programming techniques that can only be used with 10.4 are avoided until the end.

APL is a high-level, general-purpose, intuitive programming language which is designed to be easy on the programmer even if consequently hard on the computer - through power, not inefficiency. APL is essentially simple and easy to learn.
BASIC was developed in 1963 at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire as a teaching language. The language taught here, BASIC, is easier to learn than others as its commands are similar to English and has a simple set of rules for entering them.
