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.“
