i agree with mike on learning online - the stanford classes are an amazing resource if you're self-disciplined enough to work through them.

Hi Mike

Thanks for the heads up.  I'm a ruby/ROR developer considering taking this workshop. What was the fallout from the fraudulent behavior you're referring to?  In other words, dubious marketing practices aside, do you know the course itself is worth the money?

Thanks for any feedback.


I have no idea if the course is worth anything.  There are lots of other resources out there, many free or low cost, to help people learn iOS development.  I personally would not take it given the spamlike nature of the thing.

I was in attendance at a Cocoa users group meeting a few years back when the original poster showed up and took down people's names. Some time thereafter the course was advertised with one of those attendees as an instructor (who happened to author a book on Mac development). This however was not the case, and that person was upset about his name being used to fraudulently promote the workshop.
