    Hey guys...

    As I said before, I'm working on iPhoneDevCentral.org - a new tool for anybody to view (hopefully) a full database of tutorials about the iPhone SDK. Anyone is welcome to submit their videos to me so I can post them for people to view.

    Anyway..

    I have made a Simple "Hello World" Tutorial that uses the UILabel Class. I will discuss how to work with the style of font on the labels, creating transparent backgrounds for the labels, font color, initiating the label onto the main screen of the iphone and more. It's about a 16 minute tutorial. I also discuss the basic syntax of creating functions.

    Let me know what you think. (Of course this is BASIC)...I'm hoping I will be receiving more tutorials (Basic, intermediate, and advanced ones) so I can upload them to my site so other people can enjoy them.

    My next tutorial, I will be getting into creating lists.

    Anyway, the link to the Hello World App Tutorial is below:

    http://rednovacorp.info/~iphonede/iphonetutorials/HelloWorldApp/HelloWorldApp.zip

    Hopefully in a couple of hours my new domain should transfer over and it can be found at

    http://www.iphonedevcentral.org/iphonetutorials/HelloWorldApp/HelloWorldApp.zip

    Otherwise click the first link above..

    - Zac

    Thanks for the great tutorial, its the first tutorial that I felt like I really was able to get a lot out of it and understand the workings of the iPhone SDK a little bit more.

    Great stuff.

    But one suggestion is not to type out the other examples of function calls, etc. in other languages. It can be confusing as subconsciously I am memorizing the syntax for the other languages (or you are reminding me about other languages and then I get confused if that is the way to do it in ObjC or what).

    Just some feedback from a newbie watching this.

    Thanks!

    Iphone SDK for non programmers

    Hello,
    First I'd like to say thanks for posting this tutorial. Second can we start a list of places that have very basic resources for someone who is not a programmer like myself? I'm a designer. And My strengths are in designing interfaces but would like to learn how to build my own app.

    Thanks in advance.

    There has been a few changes to the website, if you go to http://iphonedevcentral.org/ you should be able to find that tutorial and many others.

    What kind of app are you looking to build, unfortunately the tutorials are a bit spread out at the moment.

    Maybe you should send him a message about this. You will probably get a response a lot quicker than posting here, especially since this is an older thread.

    I believe that the website was sold over to Nitrex, right?
