Stanford Again Offering iPhone App Development Course Free on iTunes U

by

Stanford University is again offering the iOS 6 edition of Paul Hegarty's well-regarded iPhone and iPad application development course free on iTunes U. This year, Stanford is running the course on Stanford's Piazza collaboration platform -- the same social learning service that Stanford students use -- as well as iTunes U. This setup allows students to assist each other and get more from the class.

Codingtogether
Developing Apps for iPhone and iPad will run from January 22 through March 28. Interested students need to sign up on Piazza by February 1, and should subscribe to classroom videos on iTunes U as well.

Updated for iOS 6. Tools and APIs required to build applications for the iPhone and iPad platform using the iOS SDK. User interface designs for mobile devices and unique user interactions using multi-touch technologies. Object-oriented design using model-view-controller paradigm, memory management, Objective-C programming language. Other topics include: object-oriented database API, animation, multi-threading and performance considerations.

--

Stanford's most celebrated iTunes U course includes peer collaboration, so you can learn alongside fellow mobile developers from around the world. If you've tried it alone and gotten stuck, now there will be people to help. If you've taken it before and aced it, now you can sharpen your knowledge by helping others. And if you've been meaning to learn Developing Apps for iPhone & iPad, there may never be a better time.

We call this experiment Coding Together. It's free, and it's going on from January 22 through March 28. We think it will be fun, and you're invited to join.

Coding Together uses Piazza, the same social learning platform that Stanford students use in the on-campus version of the class. You'll follow along with Professor Hegarty's lectures and complete the assignments in time with the class. Got a question? Ask on Piazza and one of your peers will help -- probably within minutes.

Thanks Scott!

Great course...

I went to do it last year, but when Paul stated the pre-reqs in the first lecture (Object Orientated programming skills), decided to do their CS106A course (Programming Methodology) first. This is also on iTunesU and has an awesome instructor, Mahran Sahami (his lectures are very educational and very entertaining - I was hoping to see him do CS106B, but no such luck yet). I then did this iOS course but fell behind (still working on it) and am going to do it again as it's updated for iOS6 and has new assignments.

Bear in mind that this course does not teach you to program, whereas CS106A does .

I got my foundation from the 2011 versions of this course, great instructor, solid practices, really nice breadth of topics that gets into plenty of interesting smartphone particulars like the various instrumentation.

Good stuff! Downloading tonight (no matter how much you know, there's always little things you pick up).

:cool:

These videos are priceless. Mr. Hegarty can get it done, and make it fun while he's doing it. Can't wait to download these and get serious about this again (one month away from finishing 3 college courses, getting my degree, then it's iDev time, game on!)

Free education? Hell yeah!

I am a huge fan of online courses and am looking forward to this one. I picked up a learn-objective-C book recently in the hopes of teaching myself how to program some basic iOS apps. Now I have some real inspiration to hurry up and finish that book before I fall too far behind.
