Just wanted to report the great initiative at Cocoalab, that offers A free book for starting with Cocoa using Objective-C
Bert Altenburg, author of AppleScript for Absolute Starters, in co-operation with Alex Clarke and Philippe Mougin, has released a book for newcomers to Cocoa programming using Objective-C and XCode.
Tutorial is written for non-programmers, and is aimed at levelling the learning curve as much as possible. In the best tradition, BecomeAnXcoder is released as a free booklet in pdf format under a CC Attribution license. It is also available online, simply follow the links below.
So, take the blue pill, follow the link and join the Xcoder community :)
