A Little Out of My League
I have a student who really wants to develop mobile apps and wants to learn how to code. As a Design & Visual Communications teacher, I'm pretty comfortable with html and css and that is about it. I know that the best language for coding apps is Objective C, but that is pretty deep water for a kid learning to swim. He's a bright kid, but he's never programmed before I don't think he's ready to start at that level. What is the best building blocks for him? Should it be basic? Action script? Basic C? Something I've never heard of before?
Thanks, as usual, for all your help.
