2.4. Apple Developer Connection

Mac OS X is constantly evolving, and the same is true of its developer information. Apple is constantly revising its tools, documentation, and examples to reflect the changes in Mac OS X and the needs of its developers. You can tap into this information from the Apple Developer Connection (ADC) website: http://developer.apple.com/. Figure 2-20 shows the Apple Developer Connection home page at the time this book was written. Like all things on the Internet, it may change by the time you read this.

Some of the information is available to the public-at-large, and those pages can be viewed using any web browser. Other content is available with an Apple Developer Connection account. You can sign up for an Online Membership to the ADC program for free, which gives you access to most, if not all, of the material on the ADC website. You can learn more about the ADC membership levels at http://developer.apple.com/membership/.

Once you're online, you will find a treasure trove of information, ranging from programming content to Macintosh business details. For example, you can find information to help you promote your Mac OS X product. Or you might find information about debugging Mac OS X's kernel. Some highlights of the ADC website follow.
