    Cocoa isn't a language it is a set of APIs.

    The language you want to learn is Objective-C and http://developer.apple.com/mac/ has some good documents on getting started.

    I downloaded the docs but reading and understanding are two very different things. do you know a site that does Objective-C training?

    Cocoacast is a podcast that follows the Hillegass book. I have used that to help with the book. Hillegass' book seems to be the only book that is recent. Other books are several years old, and with changes in xcode are hard to learn from.

    Ok so I download all the Podcast, but there is a slight problem. hes running the wrong version of X code... not his fault but still im on v3.1.2
    and hes on v2.3. is there no uptodate classes for the current Xcode.... video. i have the docs and they are not easy to fallow for us who are just learning to code. i found some youtube junk but they only show you how to write small programs and dont really expand on any of the issues of what going in the the apps.

    Your best bet is to buy these two books:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Programming...=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1231134598&sr=8-2

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Cocoa-Progr...=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1231134559&sr=8-1

    and read them in the order posted.
