Despite Apple’s play to keep the iPhone development ecosystem under lock down with their iPhone SDK NDA, iPhone developers flourished and seeded the iPhone AppStore with all manner of quirky and useful iPhone applications. And, now that the iPhone NDA (non-disclosure agreement – which keeps developers from talking to anyone about their work) has been lifted by Apple, it looks like the iPhone development community is getting some inspiration from the open-source playbook.
Apps Amuck has launched their “31 Days of iPhone Apps” initiative to give budding iPhone developers a springboard to iPhone application greatness. Apps Amuck is posting iPhone application source-code and executable code everyday for a month. The goal here is to give iPhone developers a starting point that should make it easier to make those crucial first steps in iPhone application development.
You see, the first few steps into the world of iPhone development can be the hardest steps that a still-green developer might take. In the face of the seemingly daunting task of coding an entire iPhone application from scratch, inexperienced iPhone developers might be discouraged from pursuing iPhone development.
To that end, Apps Amuck aims to help developers wrap their heads around iPhone application coding. Rather than staring at a computer screen in frustration, cup of coffee in hand, a fully working application is more likely to guide the developer to an epiphany.
If you’re thinking of trying your hand at iPhone application development, head on over to Apps Amuck and take a gander at the source code for a variety of different applications.
Props to Apps Amuck for giving the iPhone development community a taste of open-source!
