Interested in learning Obj-C/Xcode what are some good resources?

Really want to learn how to program the Mac, nice of them to include then entire SDK.

What are some good books and sites for someone with no experience in X-code and Objective-C

Best resource for learning Objective C

The best book for learning Objective C is the Cocoa programming book by Hillegass, now in its 4th edition. It introduces you to Cocoa (the application framework), Objective C (the language) and Xcode (the programming environment. He also has an iOS version of the book.

The cocoa version is:

The iOS version is:

Do you program in any other language? (as in, do you have any programming experience to build from?)

TStanding's recommendation of the Hillegass books is a good one.

Also, consider going on iTunes U to search for the Stanford iphone dev class lectures.
