You might be motivated to get into iPhone development to make the next million dollar fart app, OR you might be like me and want to create great apps that you want to use.
This is a hands-on introduction of the development tools used to build iPhone/iPad applications. I will cover Xcode, Interface Builder, iPhone Simulator, and Instruments, while building a small iPhone app demonstrating some of the capabilities of the platform.
Prerequisites: some programming experience (not specifically Objective-C, I won't be focusing on syntactic sugar), and a desire to learn something new.
Recommended: A Mac running the iPhone Xcode SDK will help if you want to follow along.
