Arguably the highest quality online course I've ever seen on programming. John and Eliot have recorded over 300 lectures walking you through the creation of 14 different iOS applications from scratch, culminating in a Tinder clone.

The course has sold over 20,000 copies to date - but in light of their upcoming Swift course launch, it is completely free for the Product Hunt community.

Let's see if we can get @nicholjs and @EliotArntz to answer any of your questions.

@eliotarntz great stuff Eliot. People need a light-weight solution like this, good luck :)

Really happy to see this on ProductHunt! Great use of developer tools like Git and Mixpanel as well... I'm definitely going to try it out when I have time ^_^

Also, solid use of the FlatUI kit http://designmodo.github.io/Flat...

@eliotarntz only thing that could make the course even better would be to use remarkhq.com to help the course instructors and students discuss/ask questions/etc... at specific timestamps of the videos. =)

This is amazing and I'm very thankful that they've made it available to everyone. Been meaning to finally teach myself Objective C and iOS for a while. Time is now. Thanks again.

@JasonLBaptiste if you run into road blocks hit up the community site: (community.bitfountain.io). Best of luck learning the language!
@eliotarntz the community site should be more public because I never knew this existed until I saw this comment here.

@michaelhwan It's our hidden gem. But actually you are totally right. We're working on it.

What's the ETA on the Swift course? What's that going to cost?
M
John Azzi — bitfountain.io
@zackshapiro it will launch as soon as Apple releases iOS 8 to the public. I suspect that will be around Sept 9. We're running a presale of the iOS 8 course for $79 here: http://bitfountain.io/course/com...

@nicholjs very cool. How do you guys break it down? Syntax and iOS APIs taught side by side? Do your courses assume I know nothing about programming or have some knowledge? Neither is a dealbreaker for me, I'm just asking from the perspective of an experienced Ruby and JS dev
Eric Willis — Mod @Product Hunt/ Founder @Chatmunk
@nicholjs More awesomeness on the presale coupon. Thanks.

John Azzi — bitfountain.io
@zackshapiro Yup, we never separate syntax and programming concepts from interacting with the Cocoa API. All concepts are taught through the process of creating real apps.

No knowledge of programming is required. Only a mac computer that can run Xcode 5 / Xcode 6 (for iOS 8).

@nicholjs you sir, are awesome.

This looks very well-structured. I like that it thoroughly covers both the basics and timely, practical information like social media integration, without making assumptions about your current knowledge.

The requested topics are really interesting. How did you gather those initial topic suggestions? I think it's cool you're tailoring your content to real-life problems coursetakers are trying to solve.

Looking forward to giving it a try!

Thanks so much for this. This will be the 10th time I've attempted to learn ios development. Hope it works!

@aelxnguyen I wish you the best! I would say that there will be times that you will have uncertainty. I would simply suggest pushing forward and attacking the course with a little faith. The most successful students have consistently plugged away at the content. Also post to the community discussion board (community.bitfountain.io) when you hit roadblocks!
Eric Willis — Mod @Product Hunt/ Founder @Chatmunk
This is awesome. Thanks! I'm definitely going to go through the course (and also the Swift one when it goes live).

@erictwillis that's a great strategy - the underlying framework is the same so learning the iOS 7 will make iOS 8 much easier.

After years of wanting to learn this stuff... I can't believe I just made this. http://cl.ly/image/2P1V260Q1B1v

I took the course a few months ago on Udemy and highly recommend it.
