People attend school for up to 8 years to learn how to do this proficiently, but there are many others (such as myself) who have self-taught over a period of 10 or more years.

You should start with something basic like learning some JavaScript before moving onto Objective-C and Cocoa. I would highly recommend taking a course at a local community college in basic programming first. Most offer night courses that last for one semester.

And books... go to Barnes & Noble and browse the programming section. Buy a book that deals with Objective-C (the subset of C that forms the core of Mac programming).

You're not going to just open your MacBook and start writing apps, that's for sure.
I am now telling the computer exactly what it can do.
