Learn Objective-C in 24 Days

I’m trying to pickup iOS programming a bit more seriously than my previous half-hearted attempts. While searching for good, step by step tutorials/guides to approach the subject, I stumbled upon this blog which seemed approachable. So this reblog is a bookmark of sorts, linking the index to the series of 46 ‘lessons’.

Yep, that title says 24 DAYS, not hours. You can’t learn a programming language in 24 hours. Publishers say you can, but that’s just for marketing purposes. To really get to learn a language, to the point where you don’t have to look back through the book every other line, takes time. It takes time to do the exercises.

      Regards,
      Adarsh
