Update: Anyone wanting to know the nitty-gritty on WebOS App development needs to head over to WebOSHelp.net
I’m excited to see all of the work being done on precentral.net and predev.wikidot.com on Palm Pre hacking/development. One of my main reasons for Palm Pre excitement was the notion that I’d be able to build apps without learning Objective-C or some other language.
I’m just not THAT into doing web development all day at work and then coming home to learn a new language. Actually, I prefer not to look at my home computer much at all.
I guess the first “real” homebrew app was released today … a Tip Calculator. Check it out here: http://www.jwz.org/tipcalculator/. I downloaded the source code and looked around a little bit. Looks pretty approachable. I will probably put my Pre in to Programmer’s mode (or just download the image) and see what other application source code I can look through.
