video2brain trainer Robert Tur­rall has been busy lately. In the last cou­ple weeks he’s added two new courses to our ever-​​growing library: Get­ting Started with iOS 5 and iPhone and iOS 5 Advanced App Devel­op­ment: Learn by Video.

There’s some­thing here for every­one who’s inter­ested in iOS apps. If you have some back­ground in pro­gram­ming but are new to iOS, Get­ting Started is for you. In this course Robert teaches you the basics of Objective-​​C and the Cocoa Touch Frame­work, the build­ing blocks of iOS app devel­op­ment. Then he walks you through the process of cre­at­ing a series of apps, grad­u­ally increas­ing the com­plex­ity of the apps as the course goes on. For a taste of Get­ting Started with iOS 5, check out this free video where Robert talks about Cocoa Touch and other libraries.

On the other hand, if you already have expe­ri­ence cre­at­ing iOS apps but want to learn more, iPhone and iOS 5 Advanced App Devel­op­ment: Learn by Video (pub­lished in part­ner­ship with our friends at Peach­pit Press) will be up your alley. In this course you’ll get in-​​depth cov­er­age of all the new fea­tures of iOS 5, includ­ing Auto­matic Ref­er­ence Count­ing, sto­ry­boards, Twit­ter and iCloud inte­gra­tion, and new UI cus­tomiza­tion options. You’ll also learn about blocks, threads and per­for­mance, enhanc­ing your apps with in-​​app audio, and much more. For a free sam­ple of this course, have a look at this video called “Retriev­ing Tweets: The Pub­lic Time­line.“
