Programming Mac OS X with Cocoa for Beginners
Publisher: Wikibooks 2011
This book aims to provide beginners with an introduction to programming Mac OS X with Cocoa, using Xcode, the free developer tools provided with the operating system. Some knowledge of another programming language, preferably C, is assumed. The main guide is aimed at users of Mac OS X 10.3 or 10.4, but programming techniques that can only be used with 10.4 are avoided until the end.
