Here’s my first Kickstarter project, called How to Program iPhone Apps from Scratch, which is designed to teach you iOS 6 and iOS 7 app development.
When I started programming for iPhone, it was frustrating because there was a lack of resources. Now there’s too many resources and most of them are out of date. It’s hard to find working code for iOS 6, and it’s going to be harder to follow tutorials with the upcoming Xcode 5 and iOS 7. Anytime Apple updates things, it makes our lives easier, but it also makes many of the previous tutorials wrong.
My plan is to build five courses that teach you with video tutorials and programming challenges. I’ll be creating video solutions for the challenges, so that when you’re stuck you can see how to approach a problem. All of the source code will be available for the lessons and challenges. I think a common code-base on github.com is the right thing to do, so that the lesson code can stay current.
Please help fund my project on Kickstarter so that you can learn how to make iPhone apps. You’ll help support the creation of this new set of course materials.
