Objective C

Hi Team Treehouse!

I have gone through most of your videos and felt like I have learned a ton. This is a great way to learn! One comment/question I had though was regarding the iPhone development courses. I have been following along OK but I have no objective C background so I was wondering if you had thought about doing any introductory objective C lessons. The iPhone courses were marked as beginner but not having any objective C background, I found myself a little lost a few times.

Thanks! -Kelley

Hi Kelley,

We used to have some Objective-C language training in place, but unfortunately it became too outdated. iOS moves very quickly!

The good news is, we're going to be working on a new version of Objective-C Foundations in the first half of 2013.

I've pinged Amit so that he can take a look at your question; he might have a better answer for you than me. :)

I agree with you Kelley, I was having some trouble as well. I decided to try the same book Amit recommend: "Programming Objective C" I'm a couple chapters in already and feel like I have a much better understanding.

Good Luck!

P.S. make sure you get the latest edition!

I am enjoying the video training but I also just ordered the book. I can't wait to dive right in!
