Customer Reviews


Thank you very much , most useful resources ever.

Updated for iOS 5. Highly recommended!

I recommend this course to developers interested in learning iOS either in full or as a refresher on key topics. Paul Hegarty's course has been updated for Apple's iOS 5.

@Michael You may want to review two Stanford prerequisite courses, Programming Methodology and Programming Abstractions, which are available on iTunes U.

Outstanding introduction to Xcode 4 and IOS 5

Paul does an excellent job of introducing the many new features of Xcode 4 and IOS 5. His presentation is clear and informative. He highlights many of the intricacies of Xcode 4 which are not clearly addressed by the Apple documentation which has become sorely outdated as the application continues to evolve. He also addresses many of the nuances of IOS 5 that are not easily found in the documentation. My hat is off to Paul and Stanford for producing this excellent series making the knowledge available and reducing the learning curve for IOS development. I highly recommend this series to anyone interested in IOS development.
