Somebody passed along this link, and so I thought I’d pass it along to you in case you were interested: http://stacksocial.kinja.com/udem-1517879920.
This is a generously discounted boot camp course for total beginners. You don’t need to know how to code at all to start, but you will need access to a Mac running OS X Snow Leopard or higher. If you’re thinking, “If I have to buy a Mac to do this, the discount doesn’t help much,” well, I agree. But if you can get your hands on an OSX86 ISO, you can run this in a Virtual Box. I haven’t experimented with that and so can’t provide any specific links or suggestions, but that’s how I’m told it’s done.
So for those who might be interested in developing for the Mac ecosystem, this is a really good way to get in on the ground floor with some concrete direction.
