In this series, Ben Scheirman shows Rob Conery the basics of Objective-C using Apple's Xcode. Along the way we take a look at strings, numbers, dates, working with a SQLite database (for iPhone/iPad data work), and accessing a remote JSON API. If you're not an experienced programmer and want to try it anyway - be prepared to do a little studying on the side. There's still value here for you - but you'll have an extra challenge. Ben and Rob are friends, and the tone of this screencast follows suit. It's informal and Rob doesn't hide his aesthetic preferences along the way. This is not meant to be a "classical training" style screencast - more of an informative, follow-along kind of thing.
