    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:
    http://www.amazon.com/iOS-Programmi...UTF8&qid=1352590282&sr=8-1&keywords=hillegass

    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.
