Must watch

Very well presented and easy to follow. Pity I live in Australia, would love to attend the classes. Will be coming back after next IOS release for some tips.

5 star course!!!

I have only studied the first two lectures so far, but am so impressed by them that I have decided to rate this with that caveat. I will rate it again when I have finished the course.

These are very well presented lectures. The visual quality of the slides, the videotaping of the lecturer and the sound quality of the lecturers talk is superb.

With the caveat that I have only viewed the first 2 lectures, I have found that instead of diving into a "Hello World" program as is so common among other lectures, but instead focussing on the Model-View-Controller structure and developing a program from this structure sets the student to develop and think correctly from the first instance.

All in all, a great course.


I recommend these lectures to anyone who wants to start developing on ios. Although the coding will be tough for a beginner, it will eventually sink in.
