Order of Learning to Build iPhone Apps Track

Is the order the track appears to be in the order you recommend for taking the classes?

I feel like the 'iOS Foundations' Class, probably needs to come a little sooner than right before the end, and I didn't know if the way these are posted was completely arbitrary or not.

We highly recommend that you stick to the ordering within a Track because they have been carefully curated. Each course builds upon the other. The iOS Foundations course is meant for those who already know the basics and want to go deeper into a specific topic. The only thing missing from the track is the new Objective-C Basics course which should be taken instead of Intro to Programming. We are going to make that change today or tomorrow.


not sure why you have an * for id ... it should just be id thing = nil; you also have an * after initWithInt:4];*.. so it should just be thing = [[NSNumber alloc] initWithInt:4];.....

If I'm honest, the foundations actually went on to cover more advanced topics than when you get when you first pickup the Blog Reader for example. I think its a bit obvious all courses were made at different times so its awkward to say where exactly it should be placed.

If it was after the Blog Reader and Message App then I think the first little while is just covering off a ton of stuff you already did..!
