This is the course you want to take for ios deving

This is a very thorough collection of the class materials. All the lectures are there, presentation slides, PDF guides, PDF assignments, everything you need. It's amazing that this is free. It's even more amazing that they include new development details with developing for iOS 5 (with iCloud integration, etc.) when iOS 5 was released during the quarter in which this course was taught. Oh and it's free? Even better, and hardly believable really since its Stanford. This is how education should be. I only knew C++ until a couple weeks ago, and this plus a obj-c text I picked up on kindle for $25 has gotten me into OBJ-C and iOS developing very quickly. If you already have object oriented programming experience, you'll pick up this very quickly.

An Amazing Technological Gift

I earned a BS in Computer Science in 1986, worked as a mainframe programmer for many years, and am using Stanford's classes on iTunes U to reinvigorate my CS skills. These online courses are the greatest leverage of technology I've seen in my lifetime. To have free access to lectures of this caliber is to change lives, mine among them. I started with CS193P Fall 2010, doing the homework assignments as time permitted (I have a full-time job) and am now continuing with the Fall 2011 class. I have advanced at my own pace, re-watching the lectures many times until I understand the concepts well enough to complete the assignments. I must say I am impressed that Stanford's students are able to keep pace with Paul Hegarty, who packs each lecture with a dizzying amount of content. The video quality and production values are top-notch, with Stanford confidently showing the way to make course content available online. Students, teacher, and administrators all earn an A+.

Taught me all I know

As a high schooler with no background in programming of any kind, this course was amazing. There don't really need to be any prerequisites. Paul Hegarty taught me how to program on the best platform. I developed my app Multi-Calc (on app store $.99) as an extension (an enormous extension) of the calculator assignment. The demos are useful and informative and the keynotes are great. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to become a part of the greatest platform in the world.
