Students at CMU enrolled in this class must complete the folowing steps in order to do the homeworks.
Step 1: Register as an Apple developer
You'll need to register you Apple ID with Apple to create a developer account. This lets you access online resources from Apple for iOS development.
Step 2: Install Xcode 4
Xcode 4 comes complete with all the development environments we'll need for this course including the iOS 5 SDK. You can downlaod Xcode 4 from here or from the OS X App Store. It's pretty big, so be mindful of any campus downlaod quotas before you start. You will need the latest version of OS X (Lion) to download Xcode. If you'll be developing in our Mac Lab, then don't worry about this step.
Step 3: Set up Git for homework submission
We'll be using the Git version control system for homework submission. To get started with Git, we'll have to create an account for you on our repository server. Follow these instructions to get Git setup.
