In this video developer Simon Allardice introduces you to Objective-C coding - the core language for iPhone development

This is a movie from iPhone SDK Essential training on, which covers the process of becoming an iPhone developer, from getting started with the tools and the language to building user interfaces and working with the unique features of the iPhone. With multiple hands-on exercises and demonstration projects, Simon explores the core development tools for iPhone (Xcode, Interface Builder, and Instruments), the language (Objective-C), and the framework (Cocoa Touch).

What makes a UX Designer?

What's a Hex anyway? Why and a little history around colors and the meaning of Hex.

Refer here for the full tutorial:

The process of creating an image only for the purpose of displaying a gradient is inflexible, and is quickly becoming a bad practice. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, they very well might still be required, but hopefully not for much longer. Thanks to Firefox and Safari/Chrome, we can now create powerful gradients with minimal effort. In this video quick tip, we'll examine some of the differences in syntax when working with the -moz and -webkit vendor prefixes.
Though not completely cross browser compatible, there are ways to nonintrusively create pure CSS3 text-gradients with a bit of trickery. I'll show you how.
Section 4: Development
Note: Higher quality version on Vimeo:

Are you interested in HTML 5 and what's coming down the pipeline but haven't had time to read any articles yet? Brad Neuberg has put together an educational Introduction to HTML 5 video that goes over many of the major aspects of this new standard, including:

* Web vector graphics with the Canvas tag and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
* The Geolocation API
* HTML 5 Video
* The HTML 5 Database and Application Cache
* Web workers

In the video we also crack open the HTML 5 YouTube Video prototype to show you some of the new HTML 5 tags, such as nav, article, etc. It's chock full of demos and sample source code.
In this introductory 8 minute lesson, I'll teach you how to install Sass, and then how to get started with basic functionality.
