THIS COURSE IS NOW UPGRADED FOR iOS7
In this Objective-C programming training course expert author will teach you how to leverage the technologies that Objective-C, Xcode and the Apple Frameworks have to offer. This course focuses on the Objective-C programming language, utilizing Xcode and Frameworks wherever necessary to build your App.
You start the tutorial with a review of the Xcode interface, and how you are going to use it to build your Objective-C project. Jesse teaches you what Objective-C is, and the structure of an Objective-C App. Throughout this video tutorial you will learn about using declared properties and instance variables, how to manage memory, creating and working with classes, and how to use the debugger effectively. You will explore protocols and delegates, using blocks, handling exceptions, using selectors and much more!
Once you have completed this computer based training course on Objective-C programming, you will understand how to write Objective-C code, how to utilize provided Apple Frameworks and how to use Xcode to build your App.
Seems to be an introductory course.
I have a fair amount of programming experience from years ago and a modest exposure to object-oriented programming. I expected to learn how to build iOS and Mac OS X apps, although I assumed I would need to build my OO analysis and design skills elsewhere. That seemed reasonable. This course just didn't do it for me. There is no logical progression that builds concepts to implement any kind of functionality. It's more like an explanation of the Objective-C's features. There are no exercises to help reinforce the content. I'm 65% through the course and have no clue how to put together an iOS or Mac OS X app. The next topic I'm about to view is about debugging. Except, I don't have anything to debug!
I wanted to like this course, but it is terrible. I learned nothing. I kept waiting for him to get to something substantive, something a-ha, but it never came, after passing the 50% mark. I am a (very) advanced Ruby/Python programmer, and knew C++ many years ago. I figured from looking at the course that this would be a good one for people who already knew basics and wanted to pick up Objective-C and Xcode. WRONG. The author does things weirdly out of order, and doesn't go into depth on ANY subjects. Everything is just glossed over. It's written as though you already know Objective-C (and definitely have a working mastery of C++) and he's just reviewing changes from Xcode 1 to Xcode 2. A primer/refresher on C, and then moving in to basic Objective-C syntax, would have made a huge difference in this course. This material is completely missing. Instead it dives right into Xcode and why certain new ways of doing things in Xcode are better than old ways. This isn't a way to learn to program Xcode/Obj-C programs. I don't know if this course was bad from the beginning, or became bad when they updated it for "IOS7", which is completely missing anyway, but I feel completely ripped off for my $99.
This looks like the same material as "Learning To Program In Objective C & Xcode (iOS 7)"
Was starting this course to realize that it's not for iOS7. Waited for the update to announce the free course with iOS7. They gave less than 2 weeks to be able to subscribe. Don't really think it's fair since I JUST bought this course a couple of weeks back.
