[prMac.com] The Pragmatic Studio has released 6 free screencasts to help developers quickly transition from Xcode 3 to Xcode 4 and learn new time-saving keyboard shortcuts along the way. This initial round of screencasts is geared toward developers familiar with Xcode 3 who want to make the jump over to Xcode 4. Topics include:
* Xcode 4 Project Setup
Start your Xcode journey by looking at connections to a Subversion or Git repository as well as how to build and run your project.
* Xcode 4 Interface Overview
Overview of the main parts of the new interface, including navigators, editors, and views along with keyboard shortcuts for moving around them.
* Utilities Keyboard Shortcut
Learn the secrets to moving around the new interface quickly!
* Changing the Assistant Layout
Customize your layout, or even add more than one Assistant Editor.
* Using IB in Xcode 4
IB is fully integrated with Xcode 4 so we'll show you how to wire up outlets and actions without switching between two applications.
* Opening Files, Quickly
Save time by quickly open new files and navigating around them.
There is also a handy Xcode 4 Shortcuts Cheat Sheet available for download. Many of the concepts will be familiar to iOS developers, but the screencasts will help guide you around the new user interface. More screencasts are on the way and will likely cover features unique to Xcode 4 and general tips and tricks.
In our upcoming hands-on iPhone/iPad Programming courses we'll be teaching Xcode 4. We hope you'll join us either April 18-21 in Denver, CO or July 18-21 in Reston, Virginia.
