Stanford Again Offering iPhone App Development Course Free on iTunes U




Stanford University is again offering the iOS 6 edition of Paul Hegarty's well-regarded iPhone and iPad application development course free on iTunes U. This year, Stanford is running the course on Stanford's Piazza collaboration platform -- the same social learning service that Stanford students use -- as well as iTunes U. This setup allows students to assist each other and get more from the class.

Developing Apps for iPhone and iPad will run from January 22 through March 28. Interested students need to sign up on Piazza by February 1, and should subscribe to classroom videos on iTunes U as well.
Quote:
Updated for iOS 6. Tools and APIs required to build applications for the iPhone and iPad platform using the iOS SDK. User interface designs for mobile devices and unique user interactions using multi-touch technologies. Object-oriented design using model-view-controller paradigm, memory management, Objective-C programming language. Other topics include: object-oriented database API, animation, multi-threading and performance considerations.

Stanford's most celebrated iTunes U course includes peer collaboration, so you can learn alongside fellow mobile developers from around the world. If you've tried it alone and gotten stuck, now there will be people to help. If you've taken it before and aced it, now you can sharpen your knowledge by helping others. And if you've been meaning to learn Developing Apps for iPhone & iPad, there may never be a better time.

We call this experiment Coding Together. It's free, and it's going on from January 22 through March 28. We think it will be fun, and you're invited to join.

Coding Together uses Piazza, the same social learning platform that Stanford students use in the on-campus version of the class. You'll follow along with Professor Hegarty's lectures and complete the assignments in time with the class. Got a question? Ask on Piazza and one of your peers will help -- probably within minutes.
Thanks Scott!
