[prMac.com] Parker, Colorado - The Pragmatic Programmers have released a two-part "Becoming Productive in Xcode" screencast series for new (and seasoned) iPhone and Mac developers. Each screencast episode is available in QuickTime and iPod/iPhone formats for only $5.
There's a lot you can do with Xcode, and it's easy to get distracted by all the knobs and levers. But you're using Xcode for one simple reason: You want to build iPhone or Mac applications as quickly as possible. Whether you're a new iPhone developer seeing Xcode for the first time, or wish you were more familiar with the shortcuts, these screencasts will make you a more productive (and happier!) Xcode programmer.
Early reviewers have said these screencasts are "the best 5 bucks I've spent in my life" and viewers will "easily recoup the time spent watching them."
By learning how to use Xcode in a truly productive way, you'll spend less time being frustrated and have more time to focus on your application. In these video tutorials you'll learn how to:
* Quickly get comfortable in the Xcode workspace
* Use over 50 essential keyboard shortcuts to work faster
* Refactor your code in an automated way
* Use text macros to insert code snippets, and write your own
* Write user scripts to transform text and automate common tasks
* Run a build from the command line for easy automation
* Write build phase scripts to hook into Xcode's build process
* Use the LLVM/Clang Static Analyzer
