Five Steps to Create a Chess App 1/5

Step 1: creating an Xcode project from scratch

WARNING: This is not a tutorial, because it doesn’t bother to answer a single “why?”. It simply shows one way, not even a good one, of doing something. And at the end if it actually triggers tons of “why?” in your mind, it does its job then. It might help you check if Xcode is a fun learning tool for your kids though.
