Creating iPhone and iPad apps can be very rewarding. But before you start writing code you need a foundation in the basic concepts of programming. This introductory course, in our new iOS series, helps you do just that... and you'll build your first Hello World app to boot!
Huma Solutions –based in Vancouver, Canada– is a leading producer in the field of software development for the Apple, Android and Microsoft desktop and mobile platforms. They bring their real world experience to their exceptional dev courses!
You start by learning the correct way to install Xcode, Apple's iOS Integrated Development Environment (IDE). This is the tool you use to develop iOS apps. As you learn your way around the interface, almost right away you build your first little "Hello World" app!
Next, you learn about the Interface Builder area where you spend much of your time designing how your Graphic User Interface (GUI) will look and feel.
Quickly you end up going behind the scenes and learn some of the important concepts of programming like data types, operators and basic control structures. While basic, these are critical foundational elements that make app building possible!
This is a great course to kick off your learning curve into the world of iOS app development! Be sure to watch all the courses in our growing iOS App Development series!
I've been searching for something like this for a while. All I would want is more courses.

Very good. Are there further courses that will step through the actual process of developing an iOS app? What about using Core Audio?

It would have been helpful to have the output going to actual object on the screen, that way we could have learned a bit more about the graphical interface rather than justthe code. I really like the pace of the tut though, it moved along and didn't waste time. Please get a part 2 up and running and show how to put graphical content into the app. and how to use features of the phone like GPS location. Can't wait.

Glad to see some IOS dev stuff here. This tutorial is for users new to development, but skips over some important things for newbies. Also, why dig into ARC? Should've used ARC and skipped dealloc.
