    I have recently installed the SDK, and am highly interested in learning how to use it for my iPod Touch. Is there any books you would recommend or perhaps tutorial websites? I have had previous experiances with php, mysql, javascript, actionscript, python, ruby and a little bit of C/C++ and Java.

    thanks in advance, Luke

    Thanks for the suggestions, I've started learning cocoa/obj-c first then I'm gonna move to the iPhone SDK.

    Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X (3rd Edition) by Aaron Hillegass

    that is the book i am reading to learn Cocoa and Objective-C
    it is a very good book and an easy read if you understand the basics of OO programming
    -------------------------
    if you new to OO programming then go to
    https://developer.apple.com/documentation/Cocoa/Conceptual/ObjectiveC/ObjC.pdf
    and read that, then move on to the Aaron Hillegass Book.

    Yeah thats what I'm reading, its quite an amazing book very very well written and as I've done a little bit of C and stuff it seems to be coming to me. So I might get started on the SDK soon simply because I can't wait

    If you know nothing about programming then I wouldn't jump straight into objective-c. Get to know C or C++ first then move on to Objective-C. If you have a hard time getting used to C then start out with something lower like HTML or a scripting language such as PHP or JavaScript. HTML would probably be the easiest then work your way up to JavaScript, then PHP, then C and C++, then have a shot at Objective-C.

    Here a some books:
    •The iPhone Developer's Cookbook : Building Applications with the iPhone SDK
    •Beginning iPhone Development : Exploring the iPhone SDK
    •Learn Cocoa on the Mac
    •iPhone Forensics : Recovering Evidence, Personal Data, and Corporate Assets
    •iPhone SDK Application Development
