I have been programming now for about 22 years but I must say I have always developed Windows based applications. I now have a desire and a need as well to do some development for an iPad. Or at least I think I do. Heck I dont yet even own an iPad but I used them before from others I know who have them. I really have two questions here.
1. Is this the forum I would use for questions about development. (Language, IDE, etc...). And if not could someone point me to a good forum that is used for development purposes.
2. This is really my first development question, but I was wondering with an iPad would I be able to talk over any wireless network and do basic real world things like read data from a SQL database or save data to a file on some network resource, send documents to a printer, etc...?
