Developing iOS Applications

I have been thinking for a while to learn and develop iOS applications but has been putting off due to other commitments. Last week I have finally decided to take the plunge and get started. I am planning to post my travelogue with notes and links to resources of this exciting journey on this blog.  Join or subscribe to RSS Feed or by Email if you are interested.

Courses & Resources

After few hours of watching and reading various content available, I found that there is no place better than the Apple : iOS Dev Center to get started with developing iOS Applications. There are tons of content ranging from working samples,developer guides to full length WWDC videos delivered by none other than Apple’s own engineering staff.

If you prefer a class room style, with a prescribed direction and outline, here are some courses I found on iTunes that are teaching or have taught iOS development.

Stanford University

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology

Madison Area Technical College

UC Davis

Aachen University

Study Group

I am also trying to see if there is a user group or Development community in DFW area or setup a study group myself.

Fast Track

If you want to go fast track, may be this 3 day intensive iPhone Development Boot Camp that costs about $1000 is a better option. Next boot camp is just around the corner, 11th Feb, 2010.
