    Developing for the iPhone has become more and more compelling, but I'm not sure where to begin. I have minimal coding knowledge, and I'm completely lost once I open up Xcode. What are the best tutorials, books, etc. to learn Objective C and become familiar with Xcode? How did Xcode developers on this forum start?

    This has literally been posted a million time. Try to search next time!

    Anyways, I recommend this book by Dave Mark and Jeff LaMarche. If you want to learn Objective-C, Kochan's book is excellent...so is this one.

    First learn Objective-C, THEN read Beginning iPhone SDK Development and not the other way around

    Cheers and good luck!

    I have only begun learning Objective-C 2.0, but I must say that I agree that learning Objective-C before trying your hand at writing iPhone apps is the way to go.

    I'd recommend the same exact books as isharan has. I'm reading through Programming in Objective-C 2.0 right now, and it has been great so far. I come from a PHP procedural background, so OOP is also new to me, and this book does a good job explaining all that too.

    Best of luck
