Does anyone have any advice for where to find a good course for a web developer to learn how to build iPhone / iPad apps?

 

Distance learning / online would be best

 

Thanks

    Stanford as a number of online courses available through iTunes U: http://itunes.stanford.edu

    I disagree. I think you would learn more at your local university or community college.

    You can learn from iTunesU from Standford University with Paul Hegarty (CS193P).

    That's because you didn't bother to look in iTunes.

     

    https://itunes.apple.com/gb/itunes-u/developing-apps-for-ios-hd/id395605774?mt=1 0

     

    There are more course related to iOS development.

    They're free and available to anyone with an Apple ID.

    Unfortunately 'my local university or college' doesn't offer such specific courses, it has general ones but they are a few days per week and we haven't got the time for that, need something that can be done in evenings and weekends - and not spend 6 months covering general computer programming first!

    That's exactly what you need. You need not worry about spending six months covering general computer programming first. It would not be reasonable to start app development with at least 18-36 months of general computer programming experience. Once you get several years of programming experience, then you could knock out a simple app in a only few months.
