This book offers a unique approach to learning iOS development by explaining all of the core concepts needed to get started quickly. Students will learn everything from how to install the Xcode developer tools to how the Objective-C language works, what the Model-View-Controller design pattern is, and, of course, how to build real, working applications that take advantage of the latest versions of iOS and Xcode. Each chapter provides a hands-on exercise for them to complete and detailed steps describing the development process. After finishing the 24 one-hour lessons in this book, students will be able to write and publish applications for the iOS platform - iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, iPod - and whatever else Apple may have up its sleeves!
