iOS/Obj-C Learning Path

I'm currently doing the Obj-C Basics Deep Dive and I wanted to know which course I should do next to continue my study?

I only ask because I'm not sure if they were designed to follow a certain path.

Thx

Are you on the iOS Development Track? If so, that should tell you where to go next. (Build a Simple iPhone App (iOS7)).

Henry Moran , I haven't gone through any of Treehouse's iOS stuff. (I learned from a book and from Apple developer videos.) There's a lot of useful stuff in there if you can't find it anywhere else. I would recommend doing everything else in the track first, and then go back to do foundations. (But skip the "Appearance" section, which is really dated.) Pretty much all that stuff is useful, but it may have changed since iOS 5, or certain methods may have become deprecated. So I would say, if you cover the newer parts of the track first, you're likely to get the up-to-date information, and then if you go back through iOS Foundations and only look at stuff you haven't yet learned, then you'll be able to easily pick and choose which things to learn. My guess is, you'll only need to do maybe half of iOS Foundations to get the most out of it. Anything more than that and you'll probably be repeating information. Hope that helps!

Also, Apple's developer videos are some of the best ways to learn. If you have access to them, you can download them and watch them at double-speed through QuickTime, which is really convenient, as they're sometimes long-winded. (But most of them are really good.)

Mike Baxter : "iOS Foundation is part of the dev track but there's a note that says it's outdated. Would you recommend me to still do that?

Truly appreciate the advice Mike. It's been a long journey trying to learn this since I have no programming experience but Treehouse has made if fun and motivational to learn with!

My pleasure, glad I can help! It's great that you're finding so much enjoyment from Treehouse; I've definitely been enjoying the back-end web development side of things.
