Best way to e-learn

I've been using this class to develop an iphone application without any courses or guidance and its the fastest/ best way to get into it. I've been using it for my capstone project and its great!!

Best iPhone course

This is an excellent iPhone course direct from iPhone developers. The material is well thought out and well presented. They cover the basics of the language and frameworks. And then dives into details of more advanced interface programming, core data programming, some coverage for dealing with graphics, audio, and networks among others. There are also a few guest lectures that are nice additions. These lectures are simply a must for any iPhone/iPad developer.

What really worked for me was going through the lectures that involved sample coding (most lectures) an extra time where I programmed along side. Even though you get the sample code and can just run it, I found it really helpful to type it in as they did, pause the stream, work through the kinks and bugs, and then continue. Great reinforcement of the material.

Excellent course for iPhone development

This is an excellent series for those wanting information on developing iphone, ipod and/or ipad applications. The material is taught at an intermediate level with the assumption that viewers have some C and Object-Oriented language experience. Thus, absolute beginners to the languages mentioned may struggle a bit. The guest speakers add huge value to the course and provide valuable insight into app development as a business.
