    This might help you out:

    Also, if you use VisualBasic, you'll want to look at REALbasic:

    Also, the overall Apple developer site is a great resource:

    <http://developer.apple.com/>

    Metrowerks CodeWarrior is a very nice commercial C/C++ environment:

    <http://www.metrowerks.com/>

    If you use frameworks, Metrowerks has PowerPlant for Macintosh. There
    is also Apple's Cocoa (Objective C) for Mac OS X. There is no MFC for
    Macintosh.

    Hope this helps.

    Also it depends on what type of programming you are going to do. GUI,
    command line, DB stuff, Java... Anyway on most everything but GUI
    stuff OS X is more like Linux, that is the tools are similar and in
    some cases you just port the Linux code. On the GUI side if you use
    Cocoa then you should learn about Objective C. A good introductory
    book is Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X by Aaron Hillegasse. Also
    there is an book like K&R for C about Objective C available free in a
    PDF from the Apple developers website.
