There is no Asian market for software industry ;)

Funny you say that, several years ago I had elaborate talks with a software distritbutor / card processor about the asian market, and indeed it got clear to me that in plain english “they tend to buy software in the local stores in boxed versions”

Still it’s a big population in which it would be nice to get a foothold, but close to impossible without a large company behind your product(s)

The thing is that Asia is not developed like USA or Europe where even a small shop owner need a website/mobile-app but in Asia even large businesses are not willing to have a website for their online presence so I don’t think they will be willing to have a mobile phone app. And when they do they ask their nephew/niece to do their website.

Asia has more software engineers than any other continent but all of them are dependent on USA and European markets.

I’m always surprised when people say Objective-C is a horrible language. I quite enjoy writing it, and it’s certainly one of the more readable compiled languages. What is it that you find horrible about it?
It is indeed a horrible language because of it’s unusual syntax and memory management.

its syntax just seems backwards, I just don’t get on with it :(

@bobocel, are you also doing any Android development? I just picked up an HTC EVO and I have started with the Flash Builder Burrito preview release to get my feet wet. It is very cool but I’d really like to know how a Flex-created Android app compares to a native app. I’m concerned that, with the limited processors and memory on smart phones, native may be a requirement. any thoughts on the Android side of things? For now, I’ve decided to ignore iOS.

No Android development yet. For I don’t know what reasons, I’m not attracted by it at all. I’ve had a chance to play with a few devices, and they seem.. not completed.

One of the many reasons actually. I don’t say I ain’t gonna use it, but it’s such a pain in the bootie to learn it. And I have my CS degree and many years of experience under my belt.

I think this will be an advantage for those who manage to get past the learning curve.

Curious if objective c is easier to learn if already know C and C++. Don’t even have a mac to make any apps with but would be interested to learn it during spare time.

I always wanted to learn Objective-C, I tried but coding is not really my thing. I have designed an iPhone game I really want to do and I will see if I can lear Objective-C and do it.
