Hi can someone suggest tips for learning Objective-C?
I am wanting to use xcode.

Are there any institutions in NZ that teach it?
What are the best sites for tutorials?
what about privet tuition?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

some docs available at:

http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#referencelibrary/GettingStarted/Learning_Objective-C_A_Primer/_index.html

some good ios development tutorials in the itunes store.

theres a couple of objective-c books in the wgtn library http://www.wcl.govt.nz/

search for books on amazon and read the reviews for the best ones.

Yea the Stanford lectures are great. Many of the lecturers featured in them are Apple employees who directly work on developing iOS and it's libraries. Highly recommended.

Programming in Objective-C (3rd Edition) (Developer's Library) is a good reference book.

If you're looking for something a bit less dry (with tutorials), and are specifically interested in programing for OSX or iOS, I can highly recommend the Big Nerd Ranch books. iPhone Programming: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide or Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X (3rd Edition). I worked my way through the iPhone book with zero Objective C experience and now feel confidant enough to start my own projects (with plenty of help from the documentation!).
