Programming newbies make apps for iPhone

clipped from www.sfgate.com

Lauren Bernsen, a 25-year-old Nordstrom jewelry manager, had never written a line of computer code – that is, until the iPhone came along.

Now the Palo Alto resident spends many nights bathed in the blue light of her computer screen creating her first iPhone application, a travel organizer program.

“I was seduced by my own idea and the iPhone platform, which made it less of an unattainable thing,” Bernsen said.

The popular iPhone has inspired a wave of creativity among software developers, many of whom have aspirations of making a quick buck from the popular iPhone, 17 million units of which have been sold. But the device is also luring non-programmers, people like Bernsen who had never considered software development until now.
