Writing C for Windows 8
So obviously Doug is using a Mac, but what if we have a Windows PC? I'm sure that their is some program that we can write it in that. Please help!

You can write C on windows in your browser using something like codepad. If you have access to Visual Studio (you can get it for free if you have a student email address) you can use that. Codeblocks will also work for C/C++.
You can write and compile objective C code on windows (check out this link here for compiler info), but once you start getting into actually making apps you wont be able to do with without xcode (which you cant run on windows, only OSX).
Unfortunately if you wish to continue the track and develop iOS apps you must do that on a mac. Xcode (the program doug is using) is whats used to create iOS apps and that can only be run on OSX. There are ways around this but you would have to use a VM or a hackintosh which violates apples TOS and isnt easy to get up and running. one option is using a service such as MacInCloud, so you might check that out as well
