This four-session online course takes participants through the process of building an app-like web page, to be displayed on Mobile Safari.
The final class sketches out the basics of true app development, including X-code, the iPhone SDK, and the submission process; however this is only a fly-by. To truly develop native apps would require real programming skill and a good deal more learning than this course provides.
The materials were clearly presented, with code examples available for download. Progress through the stages from a simple page to a more complex pseudo-app was logical, with each "chapter" building on the last.
Q&A was minimal, with the number of participants way beyond was would have been practical for real discussion.
I'd recommend purchasing and downloading the videos from this course, working through the examples, and also picking up Jonathan Stark's book on the subject (Oreilly Pub).
