Best way to learn app development on iPhone
If you are just getting started in iPhone/iPad app development, then this lectures are a must-watch.
It just keeps getting better
The winter 2010 iphone course was very good and this one is even better! I am an experienced developer but Paul Hegarty covers a lot of things I didn't know. Also he has a smooth teaching style and keeps the pace. The only thing missing are the videos from the extra Friday sessions on debugger, etc. I would really like a series on debugging and detecting memory leaks.
Excellent course led by a top-notch instructor. I find myself looking forward to when the next lecture comes out so I can learn more. I have an app on the AppStore but there's still lots to learn from this course!
