-Mike Rossetti, Staff Engineer, Intuit QuickBooks Mac Engineering Team, ClubMacApp "You have the makings of a hero, you know . . . "This is a great time to be a Macintosh programmer. Sure, software developers have always been lionized as the true heroes of society - their movements obsessively tracked in gossip magazines, their achievements recognized in almost obscenely extravagant red-carpet awards telecasts. "But Apple's own Xcode gives today's programmers unprecedented advantages. Xcode does it all. The system that allows a curious newbie to add a few buttons and menus to an existing AppleScript is the exact same one that Apple uses to build the next version of the Macintosh operating system. Today, we're all playing in either the deep or the shallow end of the same pool. Awesome, isn't it?"
