    Programming on the IPAD

    I've just been given an ipad mini by my wife for my birthday! I've always wanted to learn computer programming and was wondering if the ipad mini was a suitable tool? If so what language should I learn? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated many thanks

    Try Python. It's often best to just use an online, text tutorial and work it out on a pen and paper notepad. (that's how i learned it)

    I would look into this once you've learned some:

    Of the very few programming apps for the iPad that both code and execute locally on the iPad I have Codea and NovoCard. The first is excellent app primarily meant for developing game and physics models. It uses an extended version of Lua. NovoCard is less polished. It has a card metaphor environment similar to Hypercard of yore (if you've heard of it). I believe it uses Javascript.

    Either is fine for learning some of the basics about programming, but you'll have to scrounge around a bit for tutorials beyond the built in help.

    Codea has been used to create some nice iPad games, the most famous of which are Crabitron and Cargo-Bot.
