Learn how use Cocoa with Objective-C to develop applications on the iOS and OS X platforms. If you don’t have experience with Apple’s developer tools, no problem! From object-oriented programming to networking with Bluetooth, this video course covers all of the essentials you need to build apps for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
You’ll learn how to work with the Xcode IDE, Objective-C’s Foundation library, and other developer tools such as the Event Kit and Core Animation frameworks. Along the way, you will build several example projects, including “hello world” applications, a simple video player app, and an app that displays calendar events. Finally, you’ll learn how to program using Swift, Apple's new programming language for iOS and Mac development.

This video is a very comprehensive overview of Objective-C and its use with Cocoa and Cocoa for iOS. I learnt a lot from the presenters, and they present well. I was pleased to find a modern Objective-C video since everyone seems to have moved to Swift.
Objective-C is still very relevant to what I do and this was a modern and thorough introduction and overview of it.
I am impressed that O'Reilly is breaking into videos. They are doing a great job. This is a perfect example of a great video tutorial.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
