iPhone Application Programming Course

Stanford University has begun publishing video podcasts and slides from its popular "iPhone Application Programming" course on iTunes U for free to the general public, beginning this week.
Course description:
Tools and APIs required to build applications for the iPhone platform using the iPhone SDK. User interface designs for mobile devices and unique user interactions using multitouch technologies. Object-oriented design using model-view-controller pattern, memory management, Objective-c programming language. iPhone APIs and tools including Xcode, Interface Builder and Instruments on Mac OS X. Other topics include: core animation, bonjour networking, mobile device power management and performance considerations.

Offered by Stanford's School of Engineering, the course will last ten weeks and include both the lecture videos and PDF documents. A new lecture will be posted each Wednesday and Friday.

I checked iTunes last night and so far 2 videos have been posted, accompanied by lecture slides (PDF):
  1. Introduction to Mac OS X and Cocoa Touch (April 1, 2009) 1:04:45
  2. Using Objective-C, Foundation Framework (April 6, 2009) 1:09:00

Recently I came across some great articles on your site.
The other day, I was discussing ( my colleagues and they suggested I submit an article of my own. Your site is just perfect for what I have written!
Would it be ok to submit the article? It is free of charge, of course!

Let me know what you think
